This give parents reason to hope they’ll one day oh-so-casually drop into conversation that their progeny is a doctor.

Ahem. Maybe the latter is not not worth bragging about. But still. It’s an employed child.

2. They’re creative.

A 2013 study, also gives the January-born the edge in being drafted into the National Hockey League but other studies show that this athletic advantage likely expands into other sports as well.
