Of course one child isn't cruel any more than six or seven are.
I don't understand why there is such judgment about family size - whether it is small or large.
Well done to people who know what size is for them rather than just doing what is 'normal' or 'expected'.

Some people would think 6 kids are cruel.... that mothers of 6 wouldn't have the financial or emotional resources to provide each child with what they need and deserve.
Not me of course.... I don't make sweeping and hurtful generalisations of the parenting choices of a whole section of society that I don't even know.
surely she meant it is cruel to limit people to one child?It is cruel.people should have the choice.we need all types, only children, many siblings,twins,triplets etc etc.she was not saying people whochoose to have one child are cruel.
