One of the biggest benefits of having more than one child is that siblings provide lifelong companionship.
Having more than one child can also help children learn important social skills, such as sharing, cooperation, and conflict resolution.
Older siblings can teach younger siblings important skills and knowledge, such as reading or riding a bike.
They can be a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on during difficult times, and provide encouragement and support during challenging situations.
They can learn from their experiences with their first child and apply that knowledge to their second and subsequent children.
