What are advantages and disadvantages of being an only child
There are many advantages and disadvantages of having siblings.
One of the main disadvantages of having a brother or sister is that your childhood is very lonely as you don't have anyone to play with. Moreover, your parents pay you more attention and you might be " limited " by them in some ways. In adition to this you might be too self-confident.
However, there are also advantages of being an only child. First you have your own room and you don't have to share anything with someone else. Besides you have more money - for example bigger pocket money and also it's easier to convince your parents to buy you something or to do something you want to. Furthemore, you have everything new - you don't get things, especially clothes, from your older sisters or brothers.
All things considered being an only child is more comfortable and nicer as long as you are aware of the drawbacks.
