    True @anika987
    At least in this case now, those who are like me know that there are many like us and that gives us strength to face these comments.
    Also my hope is that if any reader has these preconceived notions upto this point, it will be removed and that person will refrain from hurting others.

    Thank you so much Viswa. I was very happy to see your comment and even happier reading it.
    So you have a good knowledge of the singletons from the perspective of a spouse and also as a parent.
    Thank you. I hope so too.
    Yes my mother was also always reminding me that 'folks should never say we spoiled you', and was very stritct with me.

    Very happy to read this testimony of yet another only child. Totally debunks the myth,Thank you and your wife for sharing such important information.

    Thank you @SunPa for sharing some very painful incidents to illustrate that life with siblings are not necessarily smooth.
    For me , while my intention was to provide others a glimpse of the life of the only child, it has provided me insight of the varied lives in the siblings world.

    I thought about this point and the deeper I thought, i fully agree with you. :beer-toast1:

    Thank you @periamma .
    To an extent yes, Parenting is important. However, after reading @Agathinai and @SunPa 's feedback, I concede that though parents play a major role on their children, some experiences may change a person
    For that we can do nothing but pray to God to hope our children lead good contended lives.

    Thank @Agatha83 ma'am for your wise words.
    I am a very contented person and have taken lives ups and downs in stride.
    I felt a compuldion to ward off certain baseless stigma attached to the only child, especially young impressionable children.
    My article is intended to champion the only child and to give assurance to parents who opt to have only one child.
    If this helps even one person, my mission is accomplished.

    There are some single child who are spoilt because of pampering by their parents. The parents should pamper but at the same time be strict. They want to have their own ways .

    Whatever we are destined only we get. Now a days many have single child. It depends on how they are brought up.
