How would you feel if, after giving birth to yoursecond child, the doctor handed him to you and said, "Congratulations, but watch out with this onebecause he's more likely than your firstborn to be atroublemaker"?
Well, that's pretty much the conclusion thatresearchers from a study led by MIT economistJoseph Doyle came to after poring over data fromthousands of sets of brothers from Denmark and Florida.
It's true Denmark and Florida are quite different when it comes to raising kids, and yet Doyleand fellow researchers found that despite the differences in environments, there was somethingthey had in common.
In families that had two or more kids, second-born boys were 20 to 40 percent more likely toreceive disciplinary action in school, and enter the criminal justice system, when compared tofirst-born boys and other siblings.
Oh, brother! But why? What makes second-born boys more likely to act out? Well, there couldbe a lot of reasons, but one explanation for how birth order may account for the difference isthe influence of the first-born on the second-born.
"The first-born has role models, who are adults. And the second, later-born children have rolemodels who are slightly irrational 2-year-olds, you know, their older siblings," explains Doyle.
It's important to keep in mind that second-born boys aren't predestined to a life of disciplinaryrun-ins or delinquency, so don't go buying your second-born striped pajamas or orangejumpsuit onesies just yet.
The information just feeds into the growing body of evidence that birth order can make adifference in how your kids turn out as adults, and maybe all those second-borns complainingabout how they got a bum rap ain't lyin'.
You might be asking: What about the girls? The study predominantly focused on boys, butwhen researchers looked at the data for sisters, they didn't find a significant difference betweensecond-born girls and their siblings.
