Parents’ Born Order Affect Their Parenting

Parents’ own birth order can become an issue when dynamics in the family they are raising replicate the family in which they were raised. Agati notes common examples, such as a firstborn parent getting into “raging battles” with a firstborn child. “Both are used to getting the last word. Each has to be right. But the parent has to be the grown-up and step out of that battle,” he advises. When youngest children become parents, Agati cautions that because they “may not have had high expectations placed on them, they, in turn, may not see their kids for their abilities.”

But he also notes that since youngest children tend to be more social, “youngest parents can be helpful to their firstborn, who may have a harder time with social situations. These parents can help their eldest kids loosen up and not be so hard on themselves. Mom Susan Ritz says her own birth order didn’t seem to affect her parenting until the youngest of her three children, Julie, was born. Julie was nine years younger than Ritz’s oldest, Joshua, mirroring the age difference between Susan and her own older brother. “I would see Joshua do to Julie what my brother did to me,” she says of the taunting and teasing by a much older sibling.

“I had to try not to always take Julie’s side.” Biases can surface no matter what your own birth position was, as Lori Silverstone points out. “As a middle myself, I can be harder on my older daughter. I recall my older sister hitting me,” she says of her reactions to her daughters’ tussles.

“My husband is a firstborn. He’s always sticking up for the oldest. He feels bad for her that the others came so fast. He helps me to see what that feels like, to have that attention and then lose it.” Silverstone sees birth-order triggers as “an opportunity to heal parts of ourselves. I’ve learned to teach my middle daughter to stand up for herself.

My mother didn’t teach me that. I’m conscious of giving my middle daughter tools so she has a nice way to protect herself.”

Whether or not you subscribe to theories that birth order can affect your child’s personality, ultimately, “we all have free will,” Agati notes. It’s important for both parents and kids to realize that, despite the characteristics often associated with birth order, “you’re not locked into any role.

Despite the theory that parents’ own birth order can affect their parenting, and that parents usually replicate the family in which they were raised, both parents and children have free will to build up their own personality and characteristics.

Despite the growth of social media, the internet and their central role in modern childhood, traditional bullying — such as name-calling or being excluded by others — remains considerably more common than cyberbullying, according to the largest study of its kind published in The Lancet Child and Adolescent Health journal.

The study estimates that less than 1% of 15-year-olds in England report only being bullied online regularly, while more than one in four (27%) experience only face-to-face bullying methods.

With nine out of 10 of the teenagers who are bullied online also facing regular traditional bullying, the researchers suggest that cyberbullying is an additional tactic in the bullies’ arsenal, and that both forms must be tackled together to prevent bullying and improve teenagers’ resilience.

Concerns have been raised that cyberbullying has the potential to cause more harm than traditional bullying due to the relative anonymity of perpetrators in many cases, larger audiences, increasing prevalence, and permanence of posted messages. However, in the study, the experience of only cyberbullying was found to have a very small association with well-being and life satisfaction when compared with traditional bullying alone.

  • Even though the rate of cyber-bullying among students is very minimal as compared to the traditional bullying, both should be handled together as the former is an add-on strategy, which proclaims dangerous after-effects than the latter.

  • A study estimates that the traditional bullying is more common than cyberbullying which can cause more harm due to various reasons, but the effect of cyberbullying is less compared to the traditional bullying on well-being and life satisfaction and both form of bullying should be tackled to improve the teenager’s resilience.

    Could you kindly review?

  • According to study traditional bullying is more when compared to cyber bullying, although 9 out 10 teenagers are facing cyber bullying as well as traditional bullying, however, both forms must be tackled for teenager’s resilience.

  • Despite birth order of parents can be an issue when the family they are raising replicate the family where they were raised, they may show the supression in their children, and also
    the birth order can affect the child’s personality, yet It’s important for both parents and kids to realize that, despite the characteristics often associated with birth order, “you’re not locked into any role.

  • A theory about parents’ birth order explains that the same is reflected in their children where it is common that the parent develops expectations and behaviour similar to theirs, when they were young, from their children which in certain conditions may lead to conflict and in some it helps the parents understand their children and overcome difficulties though the theory does not bind any individual role.

    In England, though cyberbullying is less prevalent than traditional bullying, both types need to be handled to improve a teenager’s resilience since the former has potential to cause more harm than the latter although a study reports that in isolation cyberbullying has low association with contentment as compared to traditional bullying.
