MEDIA REVIEWS

"I love books that present good news most people don't know about. This is such a book. Susan Newman lets you know that far from being damaged, only children can have it made! As a parent, you can have one and be done, and Dr. Newman shows you why. Good-bye guilt, welcome the fulsome joy of being parents to a one-and-only!" Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of
"The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness" and other books--Edward Hallowell, M.D.,"


"Once again, Susan Newman brings some common sense to modern parenting, this time with very valid reasons for having an only child. Whether you're feeling pressure to have another baby from your parents, your neighbors, or your kid, "The Case for the Only Child" provides the socioeconomic and psychological proof that maybe your gut and your wallet are right." Jen Singer, author of
"Stop Second-Guessing Yourself" guides to parenting.--Jen Singer"


"The Case for the Only Child is an informative, well thought-out review of the controversies that surround the issues of family size. Newman debunks the stereotypes and myths about only children, answering tough questions about what it means to be a family and how to handle social and medical pressures, including the rising rates of secondary infertility." Marc Goldstein, M.D., Professor of Reproductive Medicine and Urology at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University and coauthor of "A Baby at Last! "--Marc Goldstein, M.D."


"Are only children spoiled, lonely, and selfish? Finally, a valuable resource for those who have or are considering one child. A powerful book, "The Case for the Only Child" challenges misguided advice from family and friends, reveals the facts about only one child, and teaches how to handle unwanted pressure and self-doubt. Only you can define what family means, and this book gives you the confidence to embrace that view. A must-read that will free you of any guilt or shame you might feel for not wanting (or not having) another child. This book is a gift." Alex Barzvi, Ph.D., Assistant Clinical Professor of Child
and Adolescent Psychiatry at the NYU Medical Center
and cohost of "About Our Kids" on Sirius XM's Doctor Radio. --Alex Barzvi, Ph.D."


"For anyone debating the issue of 'filling your nest, but how full?' this book is a wise and empowering read. As the mother of an only child and the founder of MotherhoodLater.com, a community for midlife -mothers, I know the self-doubt and judgment that some parents experience. Susan Newman offers a validating and refreshing pat on the back for those going the only-child route." Robin Gorman Newman, Founder/Parenting
Blogger, www.MotherhoodLater.com--Robin Gorman Newman,"


"Susan Newman has written a delightful, honest, and readable book that explores a complex issue whether to have more than one child. She presents and explores every possible conflict and scenario with compassion for all sides of the issue and for all members of the family." Jane Mattes, LCSW, author of
