Me and my wife have been discussing whether or not we want to have another child. On one hand, we would love to add to our family and provide a sibling for our daughter. On the other hand, the process was so physically,emotionally and financially draining, that we're not sure if we want to go through it again.
We mentioned possibly being 'One and done' with a friend of ours and she vehemently disagreed. She's a pre-school teacher and she says that only children tend to be poorly behaved. She says they're selfish,whiny and less independent than kids with siblings. She thinks that children need the constant peer interaction, that comes with having a sibling. We discussed it a little more but agreed to disagree.
Do you agree with the sentiment that only children behave worse?
To those of you with one child, do you plan on having more? Why or why not?
If you have more than one, why did you decide to keep having children?
To be clear, her opinions have nothing to do with our skepticism. It's based solely on the stress that is involved in the process. I asked for opinions out of curiosity.
