Why do older mothers at more of a risk to have a child with Down syndrome then younger ones?
Older mothers have more problems with their body's than younger one's do, therefore it makes them more vulnerable to having a child with DS than a younger mother with a healthier body haveing a child with DS.
I think that younger woman meke better mothers because they are closer to the age of their child. If an older lady has a child, they will not remember as much as younger women remember about the things that happened to them. It is harder for them to change what happened to them as a child. Not like that wiht a younger woman!!

No, not the father. But older mothers have a higher rate of bearing a child with Down syndrome. (See the Related link below.)
Middle Child Syndrome...consisting of a range of personality traits as a result of having older and younger siblings.
If you have 2 children from different mothers and your married to one of your child's mom how does child support work?
In general, child support is based on a percentage of net income. For example, in Illinois, the older/oldest child would receive 20% of net income. If you are also the NCP of the younger child, that child would receive 20% of your net income after deducting payments ordered and made for the older child. Being the custodian of a child does not reduce child support for other children, either older or younger, for whom you… Read More

No... they will be better mothers if they are older.
because the younger child does not know any better than you do, when you are the older child parents expect you to be responsible, not the younger one!)
well a- because a child is more likely to inherent it instead of just catching it so it is proven that you may not catch it it is not possible to obtain catching it ! because a mother may have given his/her child it to inherent it

It really depends. If your older child is 15 and younger is 10. You should be good. but, ask your older child if they feel comfortable babysitting. sometimes if they are two close in age they fight a lot, and you don't want to leave your household to fighting.

Why parents favor the younger child over the others. Is it because they are just more calm. Is it because they are cuter. Is it because the parents think they are innocent all the time?
favor the younger child? the question asked is biased. i assume it was an older child who asked this. let me start by saying, THE YOUNGER CHILD IS NO FAVORED! That being said, a younger child does generally need more attention simply because the older child is, well, older. therefore the older child is usually more self reliant. As far as the parents thinking the younger child is "innocent", i would have to say is… Read More
in the state of Texas at what age can an older child watch its younger siblings
Yes; they often see them as mother figures; either in favor of, or opposing to, their own mothers.
A child is one third the age of an older sibling The sum of the children's age is 16 How old is the younger child?
Let say that the age of the older sibling is x, then the age of the younger child is (1/3)x or x/3. So we have, x/3 + x = 16 multiply both sides by 3 x + 3x = 48 4x = 48 divide by 4 to both sides x = 12 the age of the older x/3 = 12/3 = 4 the age of the younger. Thus, the younger child is 4 years old.
Yes, only a few will not.

A younger child would be more appreciative of a Nintendo Wii for Christmas. That is, if one is referring to today's society. Fifty years ago, a younger child would be very appreciative of a board game for Christmas. Younger children in families want to be included in his/her older siblings happenings. Therefore, anything that would promote quality time between the younger and older children would be appreciated.
It should be 12 and up the younger the child is the older the babysitter should be...

Down syndrome is an abnormality that occurs within a persons chromosomes. Sperm and eggs both have 23 chromosomes each. When combined to make a baby the new entity has 46 chromosomes. If there is an abnormality (which you cannot control) the baby will be born with 47 chromosomes, which will give it Down's syndrome. It is just one of those things you can not prevent in life. You just have to hope for the best… Read More
If an older child is raising their younger sibling on a fairly constant basis it robs the older child of their private lives with friends and doing things that they should be doing in order to look back on life full of memories of their childhood.

A few girls who came with their mothers or older sisters were as young as ten years old, some were middle-aged. Most of them were between the ages of 16 and and a little older or a little younger.
well i guess it really does depend on how responsibly the older siblings is, and if you trusted them. but probably 13or 12 would be the youngest maybe older depending on the child it really is up to the parent. if you think you child is ready to take care of their younger siblings, then go ahead, but don't force them cause then it wont be fun for anyone.
