    Essay about being only child.

    Hello,

    I have just written an essay about being only child. Will you please check it?


    In the twenty-first century many couples decided to have one child. Some children feel good without a siblings other wish they had a brother or sister. What are advantages and disadvantages of being an only child?

    The main advantage is that parents are much focused about rising an one child. It is at the centre of attention and it generates a strong relationship with parents. Moreover parents do not have to spend money on another child and you are getting larger share of family income. Besides only child does not have to share a room or computer or other things. You can do whatever and anytime you want and no one disturbs you.

    Neverthelless, being an only child has a disadvantages. The main is that child usually spend much time alone. Their characters become selfish and unsociable, it might have a problem with socializing with society and people in neighborhood. Another disadvantage is that only children are under parents pressure. They do not have freedom of choice or own plans about future. As a result they become dependent on parents.

    In conclusion, being an only child has as same drawbacks and advantages. I think the main role play parents. It depends on them how they will grow up their only child or children.

    I have made a few suggestions below. Your essay was clear and logical, and despite what it may look like, there were no real major errors. Keep an eye on your pronouns and articles.
    Good luck.
