  • Feeling lonely and sad.
  • The child may become introverted.
  • The child may not allow for shortcomings in others, instead always looking for perfection.
  • Having a one sided view of life, as there is no way to make comparisons.
  • There is no built in support system to help face everyday fears and disappointments.
  • Loyalty from friends is very important to an only child, so when disloyalty is displayed it can be very hard to understand on one’s own.
