I am sharing this, but have a few comments of my own to make

Who first told you that only children were lonely and bossy? When was that? Not to worry if you don’t remember. Sam Wang, associate professor of molecular biology and neuroscience at Princeton, and Sandra Aamodt, a former editor in chief of Nature Neuroscience, report that “As the source is forgotten, the message and its implications gain strength.” It doesn’t seem to matter after a short period of time whether or not you trusted the person who told you only children were lonely, bossy, and spoiled…

Now my turn…………….

This is exactly what it is ,,,,, a Myth. After my twin died at the age of four, I became an only child, and I was certainly none of these things, for one thing my Mother would not have allowed it, and by nature I wouldn’t have wanted to be. It is so unfair to say that only children are spoiled, or bossy or spiteful. Usually they are the opposite, they are so pleased to have someone to play with they will gladly share and give anything they have to keep the friend there. Unlike in a family situation of several siblings, where they often hang on tight to whatever they have for fear the sibling will take away with it. I had four children and they shared everything they had, even sweeties, there would be a packet each of exactly the same thing but they would offer theirs to each one of their siblings, I am of the opinion it is nothing to do with the child, but with the parent. It depends on your values and how you impress them on your children. My Father was a softly, but my Mother wasn’t!!! and you did not step over the line with her. Children need discipline, otherwise they panic because there is no captain at the helm of the ship. but, there is a happy medium, not too much discipline and not too much laxity. Some parents I see with their disruptive children, are so laid back they fall over, and the child knows it can do whatever it wants, there will be no discipline.
This is where the problem arises, because the child plays up and the parent gives in for peace’s sake. THIS is the big mistake a lot of parents make. but, please, please, please, don’t blame it on the child. Step back and look at the parents.
