Our expert says:
Its not in the least selfish, Carol --- for the sake of the children, I wish far more parents would think carefully about whether they can truly aford, financially, emotionally, and in their ability to provide due caring, any children. An only child experiences absolutely no form of damage or loss whatsoever ( and they will meet and enjoy the companionship of other children at school, and perhaps with the children of your friends and family, too ) In fact a good bit of research shows that only children tend to turn out rather well, both emotionally and intellectually. COntinue to give your child all the loving he / she needs and don't worry about deciding not to have another child.
