Older mothers may raise happier children

Children of older mothers grow up happier. They have fewer behavioural, social and emotional problems. A researcher said older mothers are more flexible and more easy-going. They do not shout at or hit their children so much. He said this means children grow up in a better world.

Older mothers worry less when pregnant. They are happier about having children. This means they are more caring. They also have good relationships, more money and a better education. Children of older mothers have better language skills. Maybe older mothers spend more time with their children and talk to them more.
