Last quote by Karin Modig

Having children is associated with increased longevity, particularly in an absolute sense in old age. Support from adult children to ageing parents may be of importance for parental health and longevity. At old age, the stress of parenthood is likely to be lower and instead, parents can benefit from social support from their children. In addition, parents have on average more healthful behaviours than childless individuals. In Sweden and the other Nordic countries, there is an overall trend of increasing levels of childlessness across birth cohorts.
