The shock of Ivy’s birth and my subsequent reactions to parenting have scarred me for life. I've decided having only one baby is the right choice for me.
Should We Have A Second Child? From the moment the first baby was born, I’d been obsessing about a sibling: When will my period come back?
My six-year-old son got into the car after school and declared he only wanted to have one kid when he grew up.
I know of people who find one child incredibly challenging and seem to hate the whole experience. And yet they proceed to have another child willingly.
I wonder about these decisions. For me, I would be a terrible mother if I had another child.
I'm not saying that I've got this parenting thing nailed, but I am saying that I've done it five times which is worth something.
“You’re an only child?”
There's this stereotype of the only child: that they're spoiled and self-centered. That their parents are the worst kind of doting, helicopter kid-worshippers. That they're inherently lonely.
