Pros & Cons of Having a Single Child

There are pros and cons to everything, including the number of children people have. My husband and I came up with a list. Of course, there are so many pros to any number of children, but these are the main ones, according to us.

The Pros and Cons of Having a Single Child:

1. You can take your child anywhere.
- One kid is a lot easier to bring places, like nice restaurants, museums, and on vacations.

2. There's no sibling rivalry.

3. You can put all your energy into your one child.

4. One child is cheaper. (My husband added this one.)

5. You become very close with your child.

1. Many things are a First & Last.

2. When you don't want to play Candyland for the 23rd time in a row, you can't tell your child to go play with her brothers and sisters.

3. I worry that she will have to take care of us, and make decisions about us, by herself when we are old.
- Then I remember she will have family and friends to support her.
