As the mother of two children, Kaitlin Klimmer knows first-hand the joys and challenges of parenting. The mum from the US state of Virginia recently shared her thoughts on the ‘perfect age gap’ between children, and it seems that her opinion might be an unpopular one.
Klimmer, who has a two-year-old daughter and a five-month-old son, believes that the ideal age gap between kids is two and a half to three years. “I think this may be an unpopular opinion,” she wrote in a recent post on her blog, “but I honestly believe that the perfect age gap between children is two and a half to three years.”
Klimmer went on to explain why she believes this age gap is ideal for both parents and children. She noted that children in this age gap have similar interests and can better relate to each other, allowing for quality sibling time. For parents, this age gap allows for some breathing space between babies and toddlers, allowing them to provide better care for their kids.
Klimmer also noted that the age gap of two and a half to three years is ideal for parents who want to have more than two children. She explained that with this age gap, parents can have all three children in school at the same time, allowing them to have more free time for themselves and for the kids.
Klimmer’s opinion may be an unpopular one, but it’s clear that she has put a lot of thought into it. Whether two and a half to three years is the perfect age gap between children or not, it’s clear that Klimmer’s opinion is worth considering.
