Time flies and life passes in a glimpse of an eye. When it comes to the youngest child in the family, you somehow grow up against all the odds. Yes, these odds are none other than your elder siblings.
Typically, the youngest kid in 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 grows overruled by the elder ones.
Being the butt of the family jokes is something the youngest kid hates. This ambiance of unease turns out the last-born to be annoying, adamant, audacious and attention seekers.
Ultimately, the youngest kids aren’t that bad.
While we are all in the assumption that the youngest kids have no super skills, science conveys something unusual about these brats. Here are the surprising facts that prove that the younger baby of the family grows to be the best child of the parents.
Scientific Reasons That Prove Youngest Child Wins In Life

Youngest kids try to explore as much as possible, just to find their feet in life, and this makes them more adventurous and practical.
3. Last-borns have a good social life compared to other siblings
