There are tons of people we have to meet in our life. They come from different country, culture, and family. We all have a different environment of growing up. For example, some might be raised as an only child and some might be raised along with their siblings. There is a huge difference between being raised alone and being raised with siblings.
The first difference between being only child and being raised among siblings is in terms of getting and sharing stuffs, toys, etc. Obviously, being an only child means that your parents have only you to spend their money and do not have to share with anybody, so that they would get more toys or more money than the others who have siblings to share with. They have all things that they are given. On the other hand, a child who has siblings must know how to share something to the others. They have to think about their sister or brother before doing that every time.
The another difference is relationship with their family. Children who have brothers and sisters are raised among their siblings. They always have companions and playmates. They can play game together, have conversation, or learn to help and share any problem with each other. Also, they can learn from their elder siblings or teach their younger because the younger child will try and imitate with the older and their parents are doing. They can also help to take care of each other. The older sibling can help the younger sibling to learn how to live with the other, how to play soccer, how to make their bed, help with homework, etc. There is no limit to what siblings can do for each other. In contrary, an only child who receives more attention from their parents, which might give them an advantage with help with a child homework, more time to spend with, more activity or playtime with dad or mom, and perhaps more or better toys, educational items, clothes, etc. They will be closer with parents than the children who have siblings but they might not have an opportunity to socialize as much as other children.
Finally, a child who is raised as an only child could be lack of social personality. They always grow up spoiled since he or she will get a great number of present from their entire family and attract more attention and never share thing with the others. As the result, these will give rise to the child’s bad manners and the worst example of their behavior. Because the child will be an absence of a playmate, the child may grow up as a selfish person unless they learn the idea from school or their peers. In addition, loneliness could cause the child to become depressed or emotionally disturbed. In contrast to a child who has siblings, they are raised among their sister or brother. They will well know how to sharing and living with other people.
In conclusion, either being on an only child or having siblings are just the way they grow up. It cannot estimate that which one will be a bad or good person. Everyone will learn a lot in their life from their circumstance. Nevertheless, parents should always pay attention to their child or children equally and teach him in the right way to live their life with a billions people they have to meet.
