Having kids at least 2-years apart makes firstborn smarter

A new study has found that a firstborn child may be smarter if there is at least a two-year age gap between their younger sibling.

The study said parents may spend less time and give less attention to the older child if there's a smaller age gap between kids.

Researchers said there appeared to be no effect on younger siblings.
