Don't try to stop or restrict thisl it will only push them away. But they do have a lot in common, having had to learn to entertain themselves at a youg age with their imaginary friends Donald Frosty and Kathaleena Donald, listening to Lou Reed at adult dinner parties, going to bars with their parents and eventually learning to tie a cherry stem in their mouths with their tongue… This will do more than put your meals together out of sync, it will affect how you treat each other and each other’s belongings.Only children aren’t more selfish, they are just more used to having what’s theirs be theirs, guaranteed.This goes for the second helping of macaroni, the blanket, TV time, whatever.Just let them know you want to share something with them, because it might not be the first thing that pops to their minds.Our childhoods influence our adult selves immensely.Not having a sibling, only children will have lots of friends as a substitute.

No matter how much we love you, we have times that we feel like we might have expressed too much and need to take it back. We never had siblings to completely be raw with, where we could ugly cry and stain their clothes with our tears and never even think twice about it.
That can also spill onto physical comforting, we might be bad at it and give you the awkward hand rub or pat on the shoulder, but that never means that we don't care.
