The moment you have your first child, people are forever asking when you’re going to have another. As an only child, I’m insulted by the implication that having one child is somehow unnatural.
Whether by choice or by circumstance, plenty of people have only children. As difficult as it might be for people with siblings to understand, having one child isn’t unfair, or mean, and it sure as hell isn’t wrong. Whether you’ve been blessed as the parent of one or many, every family is worthy of respect.
I reached out to parents of only children in an effort to share their voice. Check out what they had to say here.
