Nowadays, many children are the only child in their family. Because of the low income, people in Taiwan don’t bear many children. We should think of other ways to increase our fertility rate.
I wish I were the only child in our family, because my brother, Eason, is really naughty and noisy. I also wish my mom could just take care of me. Being the only child, I can have all the resources of my family(1).
Being the only child also has some disadvantages. I will feel lonely if other people don’t play with me. Siblings could also help me if I have any difficulties. I couldn’t get any help if I were an only child.
I think having some siblings are better than being an only child. Eason could give me some advice when I have difficulties. Having a brother
is the right choice colors my life(2)!
