More the merrier

In tomorrow’s Record, page B3, is an article on an interesting study about how kids learn a lot of helpful life skills from being in a family with more than one sibling. Marriages for the children of multiple sibling homes were less likely to end in divorce because the children had learned how to handle their emotions better, had learned to live well with other people and perhaps had a better mindset on the ideals of a commitment.

 

My husband and I each are the oldest of six children and we wouldn’t have had it any other way. As a kid, sure, I had more responsibilities as I often watched over and took care of my siblings. My youngest sibling, a brother, is 11 years old. I just turned 36. There is quite an age gap between some of us, but my brothers and sisters still call me seeking guidance, we hang out when we can and we have tons of great memories together.

 

I can’t wait for my kids to have the same – just a little more closer in age.
