So, my son is an only child so we always had play dates here. What I learnt was that kids with siblings much preferred to come here, whilst my son preferred to go there – for the same reason… the other kids! My son loved hanging out in homes with more kids, whereas his friends got annoyed when siblings would join in and play with my son. My son’s friends loved to come to our home because they didn’t get to compete with anyone and got to have fun without siblings. Once I understood that, it changed everything.
