Older sisters have greater professional success, says study
This can be a major controversy among families, even because one who has never been bold enough to ask his mother : "Who is your favorite son? Who is the smartest? According to science, if you are the eldest son, especially if you are a woman, you may have an advantage in life: to be more successful.
A survey conducted by the Institute for Economic Social Research (ISER) in the United Kingdom, revealed that older daughters are statically more likely to be the most ambitious and skilled in their family.
To compare academic and financial success among siblings, the researchers looked at the relationships of 1,503 brothers ? or 3,531 people. The survey disregarded families with single or twin children, as the aim was to investigate the impact of siblings with a certain age difference.
The results of the study showed that older children tend to be more concerned with studies and profession, , earning better wages. According to the researchers, the first-born are more involved in school, especially girls, although parents strive to provide the same education for their children. "It is interesting to note an educational advantage for the eldest son, the parents try to be egalitarian in the way they educate their children, "Feifei Bu, the study's author, told The Guardian.
Research findings show that the first offspring in general are 7 percent more likely to continue studying than the newest; the first daughters are 13% more ambitious than the boys; the probability of first-born seeking professional qualification is 16% higher than that of younger siblings; "There are a number of possible explanations for the greater interest and ambition of the elders. It could be because the parents devote more time and energy to them, it could be because they are more intelligent, and I would say that the longer the gap between the children, the better the qualifications. "
Previously, a study by the University of Edinburgh indicated that older children have greater ability to think than the younger ones, because parents encourage their firstborns more in their early years of life. For researchers, although all parents believe they have given the same emotional support to all children, older children are given more parental support, especially in tasks involving thinking skills.
It is common for the baby to become extremely irritated and crying because of cramps at certain times of the day, especially between 6 pm and 4 pm. And it is precisely at this time that the mother is also feeling more tired, due to the work of taking care of the child all day. These periods can seem like real torture, especially if there is another child in the house to take care of or work to do, but it is important for mothers to know that they will not last long.
Since birth, the baby has a rhythm of his own that is different from the routine of older children, which in turn changes in relation to adults. Our whole organism is regulated by an internal rhythm known as the biological clock. We have a rhythm that determines a 24-hour periodicity in our lives (circadian rhythm - an expression that we know that we are going to sleep at night).
