This is a spinoff of ANEWME's post about how old your parents were when they had you.

If your parents were 38 (seemed like a good number) or older when you were born, do you feel it affected the way you grew up? Do you feel you had better/worse family experiences? Do you feel it did not have any effect/bearing at all?

I imagine the common concerns for this would be:
- as an older parent, would they have enough energy to spend time being active with you as a child?
- did your parents have more health concerns/issues than your friends with younger parents?
- anything else?

Anyone who has experienced growing up with older parents, what are your thoughts?
