Older child’s dominance in intelligence over; younger siblings not far behind

A new study, based on a large, nationwide sample, suggests a critical flaw in that previous research which says that older children are more intelligent// than younger ones. This was said by Aaron Wichman, lead author of the new study and a teaching fellow in psychology at Ohio State University.

Researchers examined the data initially while ignoring environmental influences on intelligence that differed between families. Then came another parameter mother’ age.

"Mother's age encapsulates many variables that could negatively effect the child-rearing environment. The younger a mother was at the birth of her first child, the lower we would expect inte
