Abstract: The aim of this study was to compare the ambiguity tolerance and sense of loneliness with responsibility of children in single and multi child families. The research method of this study was casual – comparative method. Statistical population is consisted of all secondary school female students of Tehran and the sample size is determined as 281 cases. To select the desire sample of students a multi-stage cluster sampling was used. Data collecting tool was the scale of responsibility questionnaire of Sanaei et al (1381), Asher loneliness scale of tolerance and the McLean’s (1993) tolerance of ambiguity questionnaires, respectively. In this research, independent T and logistic regression was used to test the hypotheses. Results from T tests of a couple of independent groups showed that with 5 percent of confidence we can say that there is no significant difference between children tolerance of ambiguity components (role-taking complexity and unresolved issues) in single and multi child families. Also with 95 percent one can say that there is no significant difference between the loneliness feeling and responsibility scales in single and multi child families. And finally in response to the contribution of each variable to separate children of single and multi child families, logistic regression analysis showed that in the prediction equation only role taking among all other predictor variables is significant and is able to predict this issue.
