Offers reassurance for parents of only children, explodes stereotypes about only children, and gives advice on how best to raise an only child

Blackwell North Amer
In her experience as a family therapist, Dr. Nachman has found that parents of only children need two things: reassurance that they have not handicapped their child by choosing to raise him alone and specific information on how best to raise an only child. This perceptive book addresses both these needs. The chapters include: "What's Really Bothering You?" which explains how to deal with society's concept of an "ideal" multichild family; "Will He Be Spoiled for Life?" which dissects the stereotypes; "He Sits With Us: He Thinks He's One of the Grown-ups," which offers advice on how to stop turning only-child myths into self-fulfilling prophecies; "Keeping the Pressure Off," which discusses avoiding the "superchild syndrome"; and "A New Look at the American Home," which offers advice for the only child in a single-parent/divorced family.
