Your birth order decides your fate! Learn how it happens
According to some researchers birth order is as important as genetics and gender. Being younger, older, the middle child or being a single child determines how your parents will raise you. It will also decide the level of responsibilities and expectations will be imbibed in you.
That’s the reason for the stereotypes when it comes to birth order and personalities: like the older child is the bossy one, the younger child is the baby of the family, the single kid does not sharing things and is kind of a loner and the middle child- well he has no chance of anything because he is stuck in the middle.
