Time just flies and life seems to be passed in a glimpse of an eye. When it comes to the youngest child in the family, you somehow grow up against all odds. Yes, these odds are none other than your elder siblings.
Typically, the youngest kid of the family is always criticized by the elder ones. Elder kids poke them, annoy them, rule them, and what not. The poor young kid of the family somehow grow overruled by the elder ones. Being the butt of the family jokes is something the youngest kid hates. This ambience of unease turns out the last-born to be annoying, adamant, audacious and attention seekers. Ultimately, they are actually not that bad.
While we are all in the assumption that the youngest kids have no super skills, science conveys something interesting about these brats . Here are the amazing facts that proves that the baby of the family grows to be the best kid of parents.
Youngest of the family grow to be more independent
Not only do the last-borns grow up to be financially sound and independent, but they also become more independent from the parental support. At an early age, they learn to be matured enough to handle things even though they are always treated less-powerful by their parents.
Baby of the family turns out to be an adventurer
During childhood, the youngest of the family imitates every possible thing from their siblings just to prove themselves smarter. Unknowingly elder siblings become their role model and they try to outsmart them day in and day out. But, things change as they grow up. Youngest kids try to explore as much as possible, just to find their feet in life. This makes them more adventurous and practical.

Last-borns have good social life compared to other siblings
Babies of the bunch, tend to be attention seekers as a child. The reason behind this is the fact that parents are more relaxed and less bothered about the youngest kid. Parents have more experience in parenting the kids, by when they have the last child. They have experimented a lot of things on the other elder siblings. By now they are cool enough. Parents stay calm even when the youngest kid eats the dog-food. Because they know the elder one survived doing so!
This parental trait for the youngest kid makes them easy going, relaxed and socially more active compared to the other elder kids. Added on to this is the fact is that parents are a bit lenient to the youngest kids, also for the same reasons.

They are more creative
In search of finding their actual passion, the youngest kid ends up with more creativity. They discover new paths and goals in life and strive to achieve them as well. Last-borns love what they do, and pursue creative careers like artists, designers and writers etc. Athough research says that the eldest kid in the family has more IQ comparatively, the younger ones gravitate more towards out-of-box approach.
They learn notable life lessons from elder siblings
As, I initially mentioned, youngest kids act maturely even at an early phase of their lives. The credit obviously goes to the mistakes of the elder siblings. Last-borns smartly learn from these mistakes and take sensible decisions in life. Deep in their hearts, are those things, which must not be done in life. For instance, elder one’s give up their career after marriage without hesitation and later realize that it was not a good decision. This is a valuable life-lesson for the last-born not to do the same in his/her life.
