Should I have another child? I am a single mother with only one child, a 3½-year-old daughter. I know it will bring much additional stress for me, but I don't want her to be lonely now, while playing, or later in life. She now does not have any friends her age and spends most of her time with me, although she always looks for children to play with. She will be starting pre-kindergarten this September if she becomes potty trained. I am also worried about losing the closeness the two of us share if I have another child, since we are always together and alone. What is your advice on this issue?
