Famous Only Children

Famous only children is the ultimate list of famous only children, with pictures. Only children are a group surrounded by myth and stigma, most of which are entirely false. The stereotype of a socially stunted, spoiled brat stems from a 19th century psychologist named G. Stanley Hall who, among other absurd conclusions about children, declared, "being an only child is a disease in itself." Like most psychologists of the time, his research practices were anything but credible and tended to reflect his own prejudices more than anything else.

Who are the best known only children of all time? Modern studies show that once past their initial introduction to kindergarten, only children are just as social as any other child, with personalities that vary just as much. Scholastically, the amount of siblings within a family has also proven to be largely irrelevant. With the average family size shrinking, and only children becoming more common, it's good to see we're moving beyond outdated stereotypes.
