INTERVIEW WITH ACTRESS CHRISTINE LAKIN: A veteran of stage, screen, and television, Christine is an only child who has grown up in an unusual environment. For seven years, Christine has played opposite Suzanne Somers and Patrick Duffy in the role of Alicia (Al) on the CBS sitcom, “Step by Step.” She talks openly about how being an only child has enhanced her creativity and made her resourceful.

PEER PLEASURE, PEER PAIN: An inside look at the social lives of children, is the topic of Michael G. Thompson, Ph.D’s illuminating article “Peer Pleasure, Peer Pain, Understanding the Social Lives of Children.” No one worries more about their children’s socialization than parents with only children. Dr. Thompson’s insights into how children relate to one another are sure to help us understand the dynamics of those relationships.

ONLY CHILD AND CHANGE: Psychologist, Dr. Carl Pickhardt: gives advice on how to help your only child deal with change. Dr. Pickhardt’s practice focuses on only children and their parents. Usually, only children are well prepared for the commitment part of marriage because of how they have been trained to deal with caring relationships at home. Mother and father have parented their only son or daughter—first and last child in one—with serious intent, with a lot of effort, and with a high sense of responsibility

Usually, only children are well prepared for the commitment part of marriage because of how they have been trained to deal with caring relationships at home. Mother and father have parented their only son or daughter—first and last child in one—with serious intent, with a lot of effort, and with a high sense of responsibility.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE SIBLINGS (TO WORK ON “SIBLING RIVALRY”) – Only children can have it too! The feelings, thoughts and behaviors commonly associated with the term ‘sibling rivalry’ are actually a part of every child’s development, including only children. The term itself is merely an historical accident of the first situations in which psychologists observed these patterns of behavior.
