A research published in the US journal Science said that the first only children generation in China have relatively low mutual trusts, more pessimistic emotions, are more likely to avoid risk, and prefer stable jobs.
Children are the core of the one child families, which makes some of them impolite, irresponsible, and selfish.
However, there's bias in the report. The research with small sample size negates a generation of the only children is an overgeneralization. Scholars from Oxford University said that people's spirit of bearing hardship will decline when society gets rich, which is not specific to the only children in China, and we can't criticize them as selfish for this reason. Moreover, the only children will correct their shortcomings constantly and improve themselves.
