Many people give birth late for many different reasons. Some people feel like it is not ideal, while many others are indifferent. No matter what age you have your child, be it the first or not, it is an happy experience. So treat it as such. You do not have to be worried about being an older parent. There is actually nothing to be worried about. Instead, there is a list of amazing benefits of being an older parent. Here are some of them;
You will be emotionally prepared. We, humans, get stronger emotionally as we age. This could be a genetic consequence or a result of experiences. As a result of this, it is very valid to say that you will have all the emotional strength you need to go through the child raising journey and it will definitely be fun.
Your child will most likely be a genius. Maybe not the Einstein type of genius but definitely a very smart kid. The odds are very high, especially if the father of the child is the older parent. Some research done by a psychology institution confirms that older fathers tend to produce smarter children. Some other researchers say that both the older father and mother have the tendency of producing smart children, but the most important thing is that there is the chance. These kids have the ability to be the best at what they choose and to stand out at everything they try.
Your child might live longer than usual. Some scientific researchers have given proven testimonies of situations where people who had older parents lived longer than others. Meanwhile it doesn’t mean the children of younger parents won’t live long. They will, but the children of older parents will live longer than usual. It was explained that the spermatozoa of older men have abnormal but very favorable chromosomes that enables the child to live longer than usual.
Your experiences will help you. This is a simple Law of Nature. The older we get, the more experiences we get. So, you are already equipped with enough life lessons to teach your child and help him or her live the best life and make the right decisions. Every child becomes basically weekday he or she has heard or learnt, while growing up. You as an older parent have the opportunity to seamlessly instill the best values and morals in your child.
Your child or children will most likely be healthy. This is a two way blessing. According to science and nature, some changes in your body due to aging, have the tendency to strengthen your child’s immune system and make him strong enough to fight off diseases and pathogens without any kind of stress (on the parent, or the child). On the other hand, your age and experiences guarantee this.
If you are a older parent, just consider yourself lucky. Your child will definitely have the best life. There are tons of benefits of being an older parent, but ultimately, you have a bundle of joy added to you.
