Only Children Won't Necessarily Become Weirdos

It was once believed that only children were doomed to a life of social awkwardness.  Not true says one study out of  Ohio State University.  Only children actually do just fine by the time they hit high school.
“What it suggested is by the time students are in adolescence, if there was a benefit to having siblings when you were younger, having time to have other interactions – boy scouts, sports, youth groups – those things might compensate for not having a sibling so that by the time they reach adolescence the negative effect was not there,” Bobbitt-Zeher told LiveScience.

Therefore, if you want a socially awkward child you are going to have to come up with another way.
