I Just Want to Have One Child

Tell Me Why?

This question was submitted from an anonymous member in our A Place to Vent group.

Tell me why do some of my family members hound me about having another child? I feel fine with the one child I already have and feel there is no need for another one. To me raising a child is a very hard thing to do and I'm not built for more than one child of my own. They tell me that my daughter needs a sister or brother, but her father has eight other children and if
she needs a sister or brother she can use one of them. I just want them to leave me alone and if they want 100 babies go head I'm fine with the one I have. Now am I wrong for being fine with just having one child?
