Researchers found that older mothers have more advantages than younger mothers: they are well educated, less likely to smoke during pregnancy, and are already established in their careers.

So they'll be able to provide more for their kids and have a better chance in sending them to the best schools.

They will also be able to give more attention to their kids like reading them bedtime stories for example.

And this helps children develop emotionally and intellectually. Which explains why some kids are smarter than the average norm!

Researchers conducted three studies of child development: one in 1958, 1970, and 2001, testing kid's ability to think, remember, pay attention, and read at ages 10 to 11.

They found that those abilities were higher in the first two studies from children born to mothers aged from 25 to 29 compared to mothers from age 35 to 39.

But in the 2001 study, the results were reversed.

And nowadays, more and more women are having children later in their 30s.

So to women in their 30s: pay no mind to that ticking biological clock and know that establishing yourself first is key to not only your success but to your future kids' as well!
