We all know that having kids it expensive but Millennials are feeling it more than ever and it’s showing in their family planning decisions.
And because of that Millennials are now causing the extinction of the middle child.
“According to Pew Research in 1976, “the average mother at the end of her childbearing years had given birth to more than three children.” In fact, nearly 40 percent of moms in 1976 between ages 40-44 had four or more children while 23 percent had three kids; 22 percent had two; and 10 percent had one.”
Around two-thirds of moms now stop at two kids or one, making middle children increasingly rare. Those middle children are becoming a thing of the past!
