About National Only Child Day
Sometimes, people say that an only child tends to be selfish, spoiled, and narcissistic. But what they don’t realize is that most of the time, an only child feels lonely since they don’t get to experience the job of having siblings in life. It is true though that an only child will be rained with lots of attention from his or her parent, primarily because attention could only be given to him or her. Nevertheless, the stereotype about an only child should be abolished and erased form our minds. There are a lot of good people who are the only child of their parents.
