    Do you have siblings ?

    Hello CNET ,

    I am the only child. I have never had a sibling. I have always wanted one , but then I realize I would have to share everything. I have gotten used to my only child routine. I get all I could ask for. I get all the attention. It s a pretty good life.I have learned how to be independent. I can navigate life very efficiently on my own.

    Do you have siblings ?

    How many ?

    Hey!

    I have one sibling, my little sister!

    She's four years younger than me and I love her so much!

    Have a good one!

    Hi Animal Lover,

    I have 3 sisters - one older, and two younger than me. If you asked me this when we were all still growing up and sharing a bedroom, I would have told you I wished more than anything I could be an only child! As I've grown, our relationship has changed and I really value the relationship we all have. We are pretty honest with each other, and we also have fun together. More fun than I've ever had with any of my other friends. I think it's because we feel safe around each other.

    There are people I've met over the years who don't have siblings, but that just means they have stronger relationships with their friends. That is very special and important as well. I'm glad that you have been able to see the pros and cons to not having siblings, and hopefully you can grow from that.

    Thanks,
    Gabriella

    Hi,

    I have 6 siblings- 3 sisters and 3 brothers. Having a large family has ups and downs for sure. I had to share a room with my two sisters until I was 7, then with one sister until I was 12. There was always someone around to play a board game with or borrow clothes from but my parent's attention was always divided between the 7 of us. Now that we are all grown up, most of my siblings have chosen to have big families of their own. It's nice to have 10 nieces and nephews and 6 people to call whenever I need a friend.

    Hi Animal Lover,

    I have an older half-brother who is 18 years older than me. We aren't close because we didn't grow up together. I think I saw him a year or two ago when my nephew was born. However, I haven't seen him or any of his kids since then :(

    I also have a younger brother who is 3 years younger than me and we are close because we grew up together. It was fun to have a sibling to play with growing up and to also deal with our crazy family. Even as adults, we still play N64 often, walk the family dogs together, get food.

    Have a nice day!

    I am the youngest of five children. Two brothers and two sisters.

    Re: Do you have siblings ?

    I have one sister and she is younger than me. Sometimes she can be annoying but I love her

    Re: Do you have siblings ?

    I have one brother who is two and a half years older than me. He has high functioning autism. Most of the time I feel like the older sibling as his mental/emotional age is much younger than his chronological age. It was really hard growing up since it is difficult for parents to divide the attention somewhat equally due to the heavy demands that come with a special needs child.

    He can be really annoying, but nobody better mess with him when I am around. That is my job! :)

    Hey Animal Lover!

    I started out with 2 older sisters, but after my dad got married I got 2 more! A younger step brother and step sister. So altogether I have 4 siblings! It was kind of hectic at times, but I love all of them. I can't even imagine being an only child. Must be nice!

    Have a nice day :)

    Hi everyone!

    Yes, I have 4 siblings. I have an older brother ans sister and two younger sisters. My father already had 2 children when he met my mother. When my parents stopped dating my father later got married and had a daughter and then a couple of years later my mother got married and had a daughter.

    Re: Do you have siblings ?

    I have three siblings total; an older sister and two younger brothers. I have never been an only child and have only known a life with siblings. I always enjoyed having someone to play with and when I got older having someone to drive me around :) Sharing has never been much of a problem!

    Hey! I have 2 brothers, the oldest one I don’t know - he’s from my dad’s side. I wish I could meet him but I doubt we’ll ever take the trip up there to meet him and my nephews.
