Only the Lonely? Refuting the Stereotypes Associated with Only Children.
Kuersten, Joan
Our Children, v25 n6 p10-12 Mar 2000
There is a growing trend toward only-children families in the United States. Research shows that only children do not fit the stereotype of lonely social misfits, and in fact they surpass children with siblings both academically and socially. The paper examines myths, realities, and challenges of raising only children. A sidebar discusses only children in single-parent families. (SM)
