This study used the phenomenological approach of qualitative research and concentrated on the lived experiences of adolescents with no siblings who were either adopted or biological children of their parents, ages 10-19 years old. Six (6) of the participants belong to a nuclear type of family and one of them was a child of a single parent. Purposive sampling was used to identify the respondents. Using the aid of an audio-recorder, the researchers conducted interviews with the participants to gather qualitative data. The findings of the study led to the conclusion that adolescents who have no siblings were individuals just like other human beings who have feelings and emotions, have individual differences and similarities, have unique personalities, have different pressures and have their own way to cope up.
