Single-child families are more common than ever before, yet many parents are concerned that they are somehow cheating their child of a "real" family experience. Recent findings, however, suggest that only children are frequently more confident, verbal and quick to learn than children from larger families. In this reassuring and practical book, Dr. Patricia Nachman presents solid, well-supported evidence that the myths surrounding only children are just that -- myths.

Drawing on her years of practice as a child psychologist, Nachman offers proven parenting strategies for dealing with a range of issues unique to only child-households, while helping parents build a strong, supportive relationship with their child. Filled with insight and authoritative advice, You and Your Only Child  reassures parents that there is nothing unnatural about being or having an only child.

About the Author:

Patricia Nachman is a teaching fellow in graduate psychology at the New School for Social Research and has been widely published in academic journals. She is a mother of an only child and lives in New York City.

From Library Journal:

According to popular wisdom, an only child is spoiled, lonely, and a social misfit. Not so, say psychologist Nachman and writer Thompson. The authors debunk these and dozens of other myths regarding the only child and reassure parents that an only child "will do just fine." They discuss social attitudes about "onlies" and challenge parents to examine their own preconceptions about the one-child family. Offering practical advice on issues as diverse as the only child and friendships, the parent/child triangle, and the only child and divorce, this book provides parents with the confidence and tools needed to raise an only child as a well-adjusted, achieving, and happy individual. Recommended for child-rearing collections.?Pamela W. Bellows, Northwestern Connecticut Community-Technical Coll. Lib., Winstead
