Summer Baby? A study undertaken by Professor Douglas McMahon in December 2010 was published in Nature Neuroscience recently. The study concluded that babies born in the summer were more likely to grow up with an cheerful optimistic outlook on life, while winter babies were more likely to suffer depression and pessimism. He feels that this is due to something to do with an exaggerated response to seasonal affective disorder.
Does this ring true with you or your observations of those around you?
Are you, or you having a summer or winter baby? Will your child have an advantage?
