Growing up as the only child of your parents has advantages of its own, you are no longer that spoilt, old brat neither are you a loner. You get simply the best of both the worlds.

Wendy Thomas Russell, according to PBS, considers it eco-friendly to have a single child. She says that it impacts the environment drastically as you replace two trash cans with one.
