Although parenting approaches change, attitudes about only children remain stuck in the past. The negative stereotypes - lonely, selfish, bossy, spoiled, socially maladjusted - make parents think their child will be at a disadvantage when compared to those who grow up with siblings. The Case for the Only Child debunks the myths, taking into account the many changes the nuclear family has experienced in the face of two-family incomes, women who have children later, and the economic reality of raising children in our modern world.

This book had a lot of statistical information on why or why not to have an only child. I have been on the fence for a while now on whether or not to have another child and this book was very insightful on factual information. I am a really logical person and like to have statistics presented to me to get my decisions. Great book and I am glad that I listened to it.
