One thing that it can sometimes do is either teach kids to be Independent and responsible (which can sometimes include being Industrious and taking Initiative and being Productive and hopefully sometimes even Creative) and to take pretty good care of their things when they are the sole owner (which, unfortunately, can also make them more … Read more

My mother is an only child. She never really understood that no matter how much my brothers and I would fight with each other we are alway there for each other. Or that we help one another without question.

At one point both of my brothers were asking me to help out A LOT. If … Read more

I'm also an only child, so I'll just throw in a few characteristics I think are related to that:

As others have mentioned, motivation is the key.

There were some nights when my daughter was still a baby where I'd get less than 3 hours sleep, and still have to wake up early for work.

Coffee helps, but you really need to have a good reason to put yourself through such discomfort.

As for routines that might … Read more

It's a tough one. Whenever you put your work online, there's always a danger that it'll be used in ways you haven't intended. Especially true with photography...

Perhaps try to make sure that the really valuable stuff is difficult to copy (by using screenshots or images of your work, rather than the text).

But in most things … Read more
