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.

As the parent of an only child, are you frustrated because you find yourself overindulging and overcompensating? Do you treat your child like an adult, overpraise, or overprotect him? Have you expected perfection from your child yet failed to make rules and implement them consistently? If you are not a perfect parent of an only child, you are not alone. Based on the real-life experiences of Carolyn White—editor of Only Child, parent, and educator—and hundreds of interviews with only children and parents of only children, The Seven Common Sins of Parenting an Only Child celebrates the special rewards and opportunities of the single-child family and offers a practical (and often humorous) guide for overcoming the most common errors parents can make when rearing an only child.

Daniel was our only child and on Tuesday, September 26, 2006, he stepped through the gates of Heaven. We had no direction in which to go. But powerfully God has delivered a tremendous belief to us that we never had before. He is giving us understanding. We are learning how tremendous faith can be. We hope that our story and our new beliefs will deliver His message to you in the same such way and help you see how honored we are that our special child was chosen to be re-birthed into His greatness.

‘OH MY GOD!... I opened it and my heart already started breaking. It broke more and more until I found myself with one million pieces of it… Made my heart bleed, my eyes well up and my bin fill up with wet tissues, but I ended with my heart full of warmth, my eyes crying happy tears and a big smile on my face. An amazingly beautiful story that I could not put down.’ B for Bookreview, 5 stars There he is, my baby boy. His eyes are closed, his tiny rosebud mouth is pursed in sleep. My eyes well up as I catch a whiff of his newborn skin and I swallow back a wave of emotion. I should feel happy, I should feel grateful, but all I can think about is everything I just lost… It’s a miracle when Katherine’s baby boy is born healthy. But his twin sister doesn’t survive, and when she is told she can’t carry any more children she is desperate to adopt a sibling for her son. But her husband Davis won’t agree. What if Katherine can’t cope with another child? What if this breaks their marriage apart? If Katherine fights for the second child she has always dreamed of, will she lose the family she already has? An unforgettable and heart-wrenching page-turner about fighting for those we love. Readers of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain and Kate Hewitt will remember this story forever. What readers are saying about My Only Child: ‘One of the best books I've read in a while… I read this one in a day. An emotional read that left me crying at the end… Can a mother ever get over the loss of a baby, and do we even want to? A powerful book that will stay with you long after you read the last page.’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars ‘Heartbreaking and equally heart-warming… Vickery is fast becoming a favourite of mine and this book is another knock out of the park for me… leads me through a rollercoaster of emotions… there was not a dry eye in the house as I read this book.’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars ‘WOW!! Raw, emotional, heartbreaking & honest! This is a one-of-a-kind read! Haven't read anything by Sam Vickery before this, but you can be sure I will be looking for latest! This is a must read!’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars ‘I've loved Sam's previous books for the raw emotion contained within the pages and this book is no different. You jump start into the action from page one.’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars ‘With each chapter another layer is revealed meaning this really keeps you on your toes… Emotive writing that is thought provoking and relatable.’ Supermum, 5 stars ‘So special… Sam Vickery did an amazing job writing this story… shows us the difficulty of moving forward, figuring out what to do, and really how to just make it through a day. It is written with understanding, compassion, and so much feeling.’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars ‘Wow, Sam can really make you feel the emotions and this one is no different!… It is about the sacrifices that a mother makes for her children and all we can do is hope we have made the correct choices.’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars ‘Really enjoyed reading this book, couldn't put it down, must admit it’s one that I would happily pick up again and read… I would recommend to anyone to read it.’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars ‘Wow, this author just gets better and better, what a fantastic book, it got me involved in the storyline from the very first page and kept me there until the very last page. I just loved every word in this emotional story.’ NetGalley reviewer, 5 stars
