17 Things You’re Tired Of Hearing If You’re An Only Child

As told by Arrested Development.

1. “You’re too cool to be an only child.”

Uh, thanks? Not 100% sure what that means but assuming it’s a compliment?

2. “Do you like to be by yourself a lot?”

I don’t know, do all people with siblings like to be surrounded by people all the time?

3. “Did you get to do whatever you wanted because you were an only child?”

Hm, when your parents are only focused on your wellbeing, it’s tough to just do everything you want.

4. “Did you get a lot of gifts?”

Yes, our parents get us triple the gifts you got, just because. Happy?

5. “You’re so lucky the attention all went to you.”


You want to trade curfews?

7. “Were you really sheltered because your parents were overprotective?”

Help can’t function in life help

Only children aren’t allowed to have friends, it’s a rule.

Because siblings never play pranks on you.

Because there’s no way people have only children because they can’t afford any more, right?

Families are different, parents are different.

No? Is that bad?
