Hi! I am new to this group and would like advice from other mothers with only children or as I like to say "Single Child" My daughter is 9 yrs. old and seems to be having trouble finding her place at school. There aren't any other children in her class that are only children. She does have friends that she plays with after school but not that "best friend" that I have been hoping for. Am I being an over the top parent or is it just the guilt that I am having problems with? I feel like I am depriving her of a sibling but my husband and I have agreed not to have anymore children. I sometimes feel that this bothers me more than it bothers my daughter. How do I help her fit in?
