There is an interesting discussion getting started over at Larger Families blog regarding Birth Order. (I’m still having to adjust to being considered a “larger family”…)
I’ve been interested in this topic since I first heard about it, way back when. Being the youngest of three I’ve heard my share of the differences (from my two older brothers) of my parent’s parenting style changes by the time I was growing up.
And I’ve wondered about this more since having our second child, and with each subsequent child. More so, now that they are trying to imply that no child born after the first one will be as smart as that first child… (which, I see flaws and holes all over that study)
But if you have a chance go read this post and look over the links for the studies.
Let me know what you think too.
