Part 1 of the Only-Child Condundrum dealt with the impact – both positive and negative – that having just one kid might have on that kid.
For Part 2, let’s forget about my son and his potential for disappointing me for a minute. Instead, let’s talk about how having more than one kid might affect me and my wife.
I have a friend who is due to have his second kid any day now. I have several other friends who already have two kids, and another friend who is actively gunning for a third.
My wife and I might be okay with just the one.
But is that okay with everyone else? More importantly, is it okay for our son?
Or is the only acceptable reason for having only one kid that you’ve been forced by your government?
