Are You An Only Child?

I was asking my siblings a while ago whether they knew any Nigerians who were only children and together we could only come up with one. I know that in the West, generally, there appears to be no great pressure to populate the earth but children appear to be very important to Nigerians.

Could you share your experiences of being an only child? Did your parents get any pressure to have more children? Did you ever feel lonely as an only child? Were you more pampered because you were an only child? etc.

Thank you for sharing.

Malaika,

Thanks for your reply. Apart from the overprotectiveness, did your parents spoil you? On a day to day basis, when cousins etc are not around, who did u hang out with as a kid? I have 4 other siblings so was never short of someone to speak to and we did not mix much with other kids in the area when i was a kid.

Was it ever discussed, by others, the fact that u were/are an only child?

Thank you for all your replies so far. The search for an only child continues.

I was the middle of 5 children. I think i value quiet more as a result of it.

Please keep the replies coming.

Thanks
