This comprehensive book addresses many issues facing parents of only children. From how to deal with people who insist you need another child to blatant myths associated with the personalities of only children, Dr. Newman deals openly, honestly and supportively with the topics. Though at times the data seem one sided, the book is extremely helpful for anyone who has questioned or second guessed the decision to have one child. Anyone studying economics, sociology or psychology may also enjoy this read regardless of family status.
