First Child, Second Child ... Your Birth Order Profile
Parents and parents-to-be: you'll find this an invaluable guide to preparing for the rivalries your children will be thrown into willy-nilly (just as you were), and to understanding the favoritism you may find yourself feeling toward one or another of your offspring. First Child, Second Child will also help put those puzzling little questions about child development into a broader perspective. Why did Sue make so many friends at a much earlier age than her older and younger sibs? Why does Jimmy never finish anything? Is Pam's mania for privacy an advantage or a disadvantage? Will quiet little Max be overly shy because his little sister talks a blue streak? The clues are here in this most informative and entertaining look at "the birth-order zodiac," our unchosen yet all-important native environment.
