9780114951245: Only Child: Myths & Reality

Popular belief is that only children grow up to be spoiled, lonely and unhappy social misfits. This belief has in the past deterred many parents from having an only child and has caused anxiety to those who already have one. Research studies, however, cast quite a different light on only children and this book aims to make their findings known to parents and professionals. It examines the only child myths in the light of the evidence, and suggests that far from being a "race apart', only children are strikingly like other children from small families, turning out every bit as happy and well adjusted as anyone else.

Review:

Are only children as happy as others? What are the special life challenges faced by the only child, as opposed to those experienced by children with siblings? Extensive research and interviews with one-child families considers the pros and cons of the only child's situation. -- Midwest Book Review
