1.0 out of 5 stars Not very good
This is not an interesting read. It doesn't say anything new, just keeps saying the same things, things you already know. Waist of money to be honest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent: clear, convincing - shatters prevalent myths, 23 July 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Only Child: Myths and Reality (Paperback)
This is an excellent book for anyone interested in only children. If you are thinking of having an only child, this book does not set out to convince you to do so, but it rips apart a number of the myths that suggest you should not. It does so in a systematic, research-based and very convincing manner. This book does not tell you to have an only child - it does not have a "gospel" - nor does it suggest that having an only child is a receipe for eternal parental bliss. However, if you for whatever reasons should (want to) have an only child, the book presents the research you might want to know when faced with the many myths that appears to prevail regarding only children. It concludes that having an only child has its pro's and con's, pretty much like having several children. As parents of an only child, one is perhaps presented with different (although not necessarily more severe) challenges than other families, and the book discusses this towards the end. This is useful, especially since the author does NOT write a definate list of "do's" and "dont's", but rather provides some general comments and suggestions as to how the particular challenges of only child parenting might be met. As parents thinking of having an only child, we are really glad we read the book.
