Exploring myths, misconceptions about being a single child

This June 17, 2013 photo released courtesy of Lauren Sandler shows, from left, Justin Lane, Lauren Sandler and Dahlia Lane at their home in the Brooklyn borough of New York. Sandler delves into the myths and misconceptions about singletons in a new book, "One and Only," out this month from Simon & Schuster. Sandler says the choice of having one child is often demonized and the pull to have more is strong at times. Based on scores of interviews with academics and only children, the book wasn't intended as memoir, though Sandler's family of three, is woven throughout. (AP Photo/Courtesy of Lauren Sandler)
