Who is the smartest one in the Bernstein Family?

Me! me!

There is a debate between 10-year-old Madi and 8-year-old Zack.

But I'm older, so I've had, I've had 2 more years than him (I don't care!) to be alive and to learn.

Sorry Zack. Madi may be right, at least according to a study published today in the journal Science. Researchers studied 250,000 Norwegian 18 and 19 year old young men and found that, on average, the older child had an IQ a little more than 2 points higher than their younger siblings1. The explanation? The older child has more undivided attention from parents during his or her first years.

When parents are able to spend a lot of time with their kids, it does really enhance their intellectual functioning. Their brain develops in that environment where they get lots of input2.

A few points difference might not sound like much. But child experts say it could be the difference between a high B and a low A and that could mean the difference between getting into an elite3 college or landing a top job.

Famous first-borns including Albert Einstein, Franklin Roosevelt, and computer guru Steve Jobs seem to validate4 the study, but there are plenty of exceptions, so parents, don't worry. Consider Thomas Jefferson, the third of eight children, and Thomas Edison, the youngest of seven. The mother of Madi, Zack, Tess and Kevin agrees.

I am the youngest of four, so obviously I have a different take on the story. I think our youngest are the most intelligent.

And to show how smart she is, Madi didn't argue that point with her mom.
