Should We Worry About Being Older Parents?

We’ve noticed there is a general trend among our friends to delay starting a family until you are in your late 20’s or into your 30’s. We know this is quite different to back in our parents’ time when most of us kids were born when our parents were either in their early 20’s or had barely even reached the age of 20.

We want to know if this will have an impact on our kids?

Luckily for us, there is some research on behaviour differences amongst children which relates to the age of their mother at birth.

The research has found that the older the mother is at the time of birth, the less behavioural problems observed in her children. The age group with the least likelihood of developing behavioural problems was actually found in mothers who had their children after the age of 35!

Interestingly, the age of the father didn’t make a lot of difference!?

With that in mind…perhaps we should just delay this childbearing thing a little longer?? (kidding!)

What are your thoughts? Do you think the age at which you have children makes a difference? Are you nearing the age of 30 and feeling pressured not to delay any longer? Look forward to hearing your thoughts and experiences!
