Here is the topic
Comparison Essay: Do you think it is important for children to have brothers and sisters? if so, how many, Do you think that only children may be at a disadvantage when they get older? Why or Why not?
I really need some ideas or the outline that relate to this topic. Thanks in advantage.

Greetings!

We don't provide outlines on this free site, but I can help with some suggestions. :-) This is a topic on which numerous studies have been done. It might be helpful to you to look at a few articles on the subject to see what conclusions have been drawn by psychologists, sociologists and other researchers. I can see how there might be benefits either way. Children with siblings learn to share, wait their turn, and perhaps take care of younger siblings, all of which are useful skills. On the other hand, only children can receive more of their parents' attention, which may give them an advantage with help with homework, more playtime with dad or mom, and perhaps more or better toys, educational items, clothes, etc. because there is more money available. A possible disadvantage for only children when they get older is that they may not have had the opportunity to socialize as much with other children, which can cause problems. However, this can be overcome, by making sure they have friends, perhaps participate in play groups, and so forth.

I hope this gives you some ideas!

Sibling relationship is the most enduring one that any of us experiences, longer and less demanding than that of our parents, children or spouse; it is potentially longest relationship we will ever have.
Children who have brothers and sisters usually have more perspective of life than the only children. The sibling relationship can bring to children the differences between the views of live not just only from parents but it is also from their brothers and sisters. The first thing that children who have brothers and sisters can learn is how to share with others. Although sometimes children just want to keep something for theirs own, they have to think about their siblings before doing that every time. It is just like a conception of sharing. However, the only child in a family has all the things that given. They don't have to worry about their sibling who they have to share with or think about.
In early childhood, children who have brothers and sisters means they have companions and playmates, they can play the game together, have conversations, learn to interact with the community, and share problem with each other. Especially, they can take care of each other; the older can help the younger siblings with homework when parents go to work or have to do something else. In contrast, only children can receive more of their parents' attention, which may give them an advantage with help with homework, more playtime with dad or mom, and perhaps more or better toys, educational items, clothes, etc. because there is more money available. But, only children may not have the opportunity to socialize as much with other children. Days can be long with them, which can cause of depression.
In adulthood, when people get older, they usually find some one that they think they can share their memory about childhood. The only people who they can think of are their siblings who grew up with under a roof of family. It makes elderly feel comfortable and peaceful in the old age when they have some one that reminds them about their childhood. On the other hand, a possible disadvantage for only children when they get older is that they may not have a person to share with when their children have got married and raised their own families. Sometimes, only child has to struggle alone with his life.
In conclusion, only children is unique and special in family and may have higher self-esteem than others, however it is good for children to have brother and sisters because children with siblings learn to share, wait their turn, and perhaps take care of younger siblings, all of which are useful skills for their life in the future. And the relationships among brothers and sisters are infinitely varied, but whatever their characteristics, these bonds last throughout life.

We try to answer all posts within 24 hours; five hours is often not possible.

You have a tendency to leave out articles such as "the." For example:

The sibling relationship is the most enduring one that any of us experiences, longer and less demanding than that of our parents, children or spouse; it is potentially the longest relationship we will ever have.

Children who have brothers and sisters usually have more perspective on life than the only children.

The sibling relationship can bring to children the differences between the views of life not only from parents but also from their brothers and sisters.

children just want to keep something for their own,

However, the only child in a family has all the things that are given.

Days can be long with them, which can cause depression.

The only people who they can think of are their siblings who grew up with them under the same roof as a family.

I hope this helps!
