New research suggests that the children older mothers grow to be happier. The study says children will also experience fewer behavioural problems and have fewer social and emotional difficulties. Researchers Aarhus University Denmark looked data a random sample of 4,741 mothers. Lead researcher Professor Dion Sommer said we become, "more mentally flexible age, more tolerant other people". He said this could be the reason why older mothers do not scold and physically discipline their children as much as younger mothers. He added that, "this style parenting can contribute to a positive psycho-social environment" as the child grows .

The findings the research showed that the average age the women while pregnant was about 31. Studies show that older mothers worry less during pregnancy and are happier and more positive becoming parents and their children in general. This may mean they are more caring and supportive their children. Older mothers also tend to be more stable relationships, they are better financially and they have had a better education. Researchers also found that children born to older mothers have a better language ability than those born younger mothers. This may be because older mothers spend more time their children and talk to them more often.
