Birth Order Research - I think a good approach to birth order is to consider how sibling relationships are depicted in myths and fairytales or in the Bible (especially in the Old Testament). There are many stereotypes concerning the different positions in a family (e.g. last-born as "nestling"). Recall your own experiences. Perhaps you come upon an autobiographic account of a famous first, last, middle or only child.   4/5

SPIG - Parental Alienation Syndrome - Parental alienation syndrome is an evolving subject and not without controversy. For some, anyone who obstructs contact is intentionally denigrating the other parent with the intent of alienating the child, and this is seen as a symptom of depression and dependence. But for others the matter is not so clear.  2/5
The Dilemma of the Only Child - Alissa D. Eischens Northwestern University. This paper examines the phenomenon of birth order as it particularly relates to only children. Only children are unique in birth order in that they are the first- and last-born children in their families. Various theories of prominent psychologists such as Adler, Freud, Skinner, and Eysenck will be examined in their application to the importance of birth order in personality development. A theory concerning only children will then be presented, dealing chiefly with their difficulty with the labels of introversion and extraversion. Personal observations as well as a proposal for testing the theory will be given. 3/5
