Artist illustrates the difference between first and second born child

Whoever you are, you'll be able to relate to this.


Artist Wang Chen has beautifully illustrated how the parent’s methods of parenting change between first born and second born child. She has produced very accurate comics that show that as the parent’s experience changes after first born, their parenting methods greatly change. After the first child, parents find out a lot about what they need to worry about and what not.
When its parenting second born, parents realize by this time that they don’t need to panic and be extra cautious about every little thing the child does. This way, according to Wang Chen, the second born can have both, a harder and an easier time in life.

There’s no decrease in the amount of love or concern, the only difference is, now the parents are well aware of possible problems and their solutions during parenting so there’s no panic and they’re totally relaxed about it.
1.The first major difference is, when its the first born, the mother gets treated like a queen but, after that, in the case of second child, everyone knows about her limitations so the extra privilege is no longer there.

2.If you’re a woman, you would’ve noticed the drastic fall in the excitement of your friends when you told them you’re expecting the second time, as compared to their excitement when you first got pregnant.

15.The first day of school is a big day in either of the kids’ case, the first or the second born. The reason, however, is very different. In the first born’s case, they’re proud but, in the second born’s case, they are glas they’ll be able to relax a bit now.
