Is Being An Older Parent Really That Much Better? Some Moms Say Yes

How do you feel about late motherhood?

Now, I don’t want to reveal my age, but I will tell you that on some days I am absolutely exhausted and I feel older than I am. And by that I mean I am both physically and mentally tired trying to juggle motherhood with my work, taking care of the house, volunteering at my children’s school, helping with homework and making sure that my children are wearing clean socks to school everyday (or finding their socks in the morning for that matter!).

They say the older you get the harder it is and honestly, I believe it. Yet there are some moms out there that say older parenthood has its benefits. And while I’m personally feel like I’m training for a marathon on a daily basis, some of what these moms have to say about older parenting does make sense.

Age is nothing but a number when it comes to motherhood.

Are older parents better parents?
