To those who have a single child, what would YOU like to say to the naysayers, negators, and


other haters who speak less than positively about single children?Although single children now comprise at least 20% of the population, there are STILL negative misperceptions and stereotypes regarding the single child.Single children are often seen as socially inept/awkward, self-centered, and too dependent upon parents.They are believed not to interact well and connect with others. They are considered to be poor in relationships.However, such is not the case.Single children interact with others like those who are from multiple child families.They are also highly responsible and independent.

    I concur totally.So many people have the notion of an only child being a China Doll who does not know how to do anything and is totally fragile. THEY COULD NOT BE MORE WRONG. I am an only child and very independent and responsible.
