My 12 yo dd has been asking lately periodically esp. this Christmas break why she can't have a sibling. She's an only child and we'd have to adopt because we are past having one naturally. She is bored w/out having a sibling and Christmas break was pretty boring w/no one to play with except a couple neighbor kids a few days. She's brought it up before but a lot over break. Has anyone else had this issue? How did/would you handle it?Answer Question

Why don't you adopt another child? I believe having a sibling is a good thing. Maybe you can't be a bio mum, but I am sure you are a good mum. So if you feel you are ready for another child than adopt one:) There are so many children out there waiting for a mum and dad to love them. And a loving sibling is a plus:) Or if you don't want to have other children than adopt a dog for your daughter. Dogs are good friends and fun to play with.

i dont think getting a child for daughter is the answer , i honestly think you need to get her out of the house more where she can meet people and develop friendships......try the boys/girls club in your area, look at what is offered at the rec center, or other organizations in your area for kids her age.....
