Ms Vicky Ho, a family life specialist at Focus on the Family Singapore, says: "The researchers discovered that mums who gave birth at a later age had children who did significantly better in cognitive tests, compared with the children of younger mums.
"They explained that the older mothers were more likely to have higher education and be better off socio-economically, and thus were more likely to raise kids who had access to resources that resulted in stronger cognitive abilities."
