That's so ridiculous!!! Soooo, I guess by having 1 child, it's preparing you for motherhood....LOL. My best friend has an only child and considered not having more because he's handful enough.

 There are people who are caregivers of many children, who raise nieces and nephews, who have never given birth who are often more of a parent than someone with MANY children. This is definitely a biased and "stereotyped" statement made by someone without full knowledge of the diversity of individual experiences.

That makes no sense....ALL children, whether you have 1 or 5, need love, care, attention, patience, etc.  You devote as much to one as you do more than one...

I heard it a lot growing up because my mom had four daughters and my aunt who thought she knew everything about raising kids only had one child.. In some aspects I understand what it means but I still don't agree with it!!

Ummm yea if u have a child you are a parent. I have 1 child and he is my world. I have learned a lot about being a mom and love it. Anyone who says I'm not a parent is simply wrong
