Reading the above post about having an only child reminded me of something that was said to me regarding my eldest DD. She was an only child for 11 years before I had my DS.
My uncle's wife ( I won't call her my aunt) used to go on, all the time about my DD being 'spoilt' because she was an only child at the time.
I said to uncle's Mrs "just because she is an only child doesn't necessarily mean she is spoilt!'. And she wasn't . I had to work full time when i was a single mum and my supposedly 'spoilt' DD never had a brand new school uniform (all second hand) and had to walk herself the 2 klms to and from school while I was at work. Now I remember back to it this woman really p!ssed me off.
There was no telling her that just because DD was an only child didn't mean she was a spoilt, overindulged brat. Some people are just thick
