What are the TEN worst things that people say to 1-child families?
Despite the increase of only children, some people still view only children in a negative light.They maintain that only children are "missing out" as they don't have a sibling. Dr. Susan Newman,psychologist, & author of numerous books and articles on only children,stated that the negative stereotypes of only children are completely baseless.Dr. Newman furthermore indicated that only children usually 'don't have to endure the gamemanship & orher psychological games that children w/siblings routinely endure.Dr, Newman stated that because there is no sibling competition,onlues are self-aware.
It's not the worst thing, but it's a common question, "Why only one?" Other than that, I don't feel any stigma and with the cost of living being what it is, we were probably meant to have just one child.
