advantage and disadvantages of being an only child
my fathe r used to talk to me about his five siblings . he used to say that i was u nfor tunate that i had none . and i u sed to envy him and wonder how nice it would be to have a houseful of brothers and sisters . i also used to wonder what would happen to me if i we re to lose my pa rents .
frankly speaking , i do not have to shar e anything with anybody . i own all my par ents’love . i can as k for anything i want . i always wea r new clothes and eat the best food . since my par ents spend all their money on me, i can study at the best university of the count ry .
lucky as i am, i now and then feel very lonely and i have nobody to complain about my loneliness . how i long for a quarrel with my brothers and siste rs ! of course i have classmates and f riends , but they a re differ ent . sometimes i feel so pes simistic that aft er my parents leave the world , i will have no blood relatives left to shar e with me the fond memories of my pa rents . furthermor e, i am likely to become selfish while i realize the world is for s haring .
so , i am happy but lonely; i am for tunate but pit eou s; i am loved but spoiled; i am well-br ed but selfish , because i am the only child of the family .
