Advantages and disadvantages of being an only child

Some people think that having a brother is a drawback, they like to be an only child. However, some people think that have a brother is the most beautiful thing. There are several points to consider.

On the one hand, having a brother is more beautiful than being an only child. I have got one sister and one brother and I’m proud of them.

My sister’s name is Cristina, she is eleven years old and we are good friends though sometimes we fight. She is good at Science. Although we are very different I’m proud of my sister and I like to help her.

My brother is called Jordi, he is four years old and we play a lot. I love him. Having a brother or a sister is funnier than being an only child. You can play with him or her. You never get bored.

Another point is that If you have a little brother or a little sister, you can learn more, you can help him, you can change their diapers, you can bath him, you can feed him… you can practice being a mother or a father. Also if you have a big brother, he can help you. Furthermore brothers can learn to share. Only children are usually spoiled.

On the other hand having a brother is a bit irritant. Sometimes having a brother or a sister is very unbearable. They take away your things. Also they break or lose your things, they make noise… Besides you fight with them. I don’t like fighting with my brothers and I don’t fight with them, is difficult, but I’m keeping at it. I’m optimistic about my brothers.

In conclusion, there are advantages and disadvantages to being an only child, but in my opinion it is important for everyone to learn to share and help your brothers.
