This only kid is A-OK.
July 24, More Americans are grappling with the idea of having one child. The one-child family is the fastest-growing family unit in the United States, according to census data. Lauren Sandler grew up as an only child, never giving it much thought until she became a mother and decided she was happy raising one kid. Suddenly, making the same choice her parents had made seemed shocking to people around her.
One and Only: The Freedom of Having an Only Child, and the Joy of Being One
Lauren Sandler is an only child with an only child of her own, who found that discussing the choice to stop at one kid was loaded with anxiety, doubt, misinformation, and judgment. In this heartfelt work, Sandler demystifies the perceived problems of the only child and legitimizes a conversation about the larger societal costs of having more than one. We ask when people are having kids—never a kid, never one childat a time. If parents no longer felt they had to have second children to keep from royally screwing up their first, would the majority of them still do it? One and Only examines these questions, exploring what the rise of the single-child family means for our economies, our environment, and our freedom.
This only kid is A-OK. Harshing on the only kids. McKibben and his wife decided to have just one child, inspired in part by their concern for the environment. I called up McKibben recently to chat about how Maybe One is just as relevant today as it was a dozen years ago. The most novel and interesting part of Maybe One was showing that only children are fine, indistinguishable, completely normal, not subject to the problems that people always diagnose, like being spoiled.

This Is All I Got
By Lauren Sandler. In the beginning, there was land. Land that needed to be planted and tended, animals that needed to be minded and slaughtered. A family was a workforce. The more children a family had—once they were of able working age, by ten years old—the more people could help turn surviving into thriving.

Not long before Fey went public with her ambivalence, at least 20 people forwarded me a Time magazine cover story by Lauren Sandler. An only child with an only child and struggling with the same choice as Fey, Sandler relayed an experience familiar to me and most parents I know of only children: a cashier at the supermarket chided her for not giving her daughter a sibling. It was a scene fueled by the long-standing assumption that if you want to screw up your kid, having just one is a great way to do it. From murderers to TV characters, Sandler describes the insidious ways in which only children get a bad rap. To do that, she had to preserve her authentic self, which she could not imagine doing with a second child. The environmentalist Bill McKibben and the psychologist Susan Newman have both written well-known books about the advantages of having a single child that covered some of the same ground.
