It’s incredibly easy to get baby fever again after you have your first born child. They’re polite, happy, and everything you ever wanted in a child. So, you decide to have another kid and they turn out to be the exact opposite of what you expected.
They’re more independent thinkers and seemingly give you a hard time with everything from feeding to walking and everything in-between. Well, the good news is that there’s a reason your second-born turned out to be a monster.
Your Second Child Is A Monster? Same
If you look at your second child and think, “what did I do differently to raise such a different kid?” there’s actually science behind it. So take a deep breath, relax, and stop beating yourself up over it because literally, every parent is there with you.
A recent study out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology investigated the impact of birth order on delinquency. They found that second-born boys are substantially more likely to exhibit delinquency problems compared to their older sibling.
