Birth Order Schmirth Order
Birth order is fascinating to think about, but it doesn’t predetermine personality. Temperament and the way a child reacts to their situation are what actually have the biggest influence. The parent’s child-raising style has an impact too. That’s why it’s important to avoid labels and recognize the positive traits of each child no matter where they fall in the ranks. Acknowledge the pros and cons of each position if/when it comes up and give support as needed. Also, make sure everyone is getting quality one on one time.
