In a controversial blog post, The Stir writer Andrew Kardon claims that "parents who chose to have only one child are just being selfish" (source)
He claims that children without siblings lack a playmate, a confidant, and someone to experience life alongside.
Finally, he gets to his real point, which is that only children tend to be "obnoxious and selfish." And that they also "don't seem to know how to play well with other kids. Yes, they can get along, but there's always something a bit off with them. They tend to relate to adults better than kids at times, which just causes some odd interactions on playdates." (source)

It's Feedback Friday....
Do you agree with these observations about only children?
Are you happy with your decision to have 1, 2, 3, etc... kids?
Are you an only child - do you take offense to this characterization?
