The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics show a steady rise in the number of only children. How does being an only child affect us? Does it create a more motivated adult, a spoilt adult or make no difference. What are the long term consequences of smaller families for us as a society with an ageing population? Sheila McClennon is joined by Damon Syson, journalist and father of one, Ann Richardson, a psychotherapist specialising in single child adults, and an only child herself, and Anastasia De Waal Head of Family and Education at Civitas, and youngest of five.
