Best Sibling Configurations Reprised

Remember the study that rated the best sibling combinations for family tranquility (two girls, a girl and a boy, etc.)?

Well, it appears this new baby is going to cause us to drop precipitously in the rankings.

With a boy and a girl, we were No. 2. But two girls and one boy would put us at No. 7.
1. Two girls
2. One boy and one girl
3. Two boys
4. Three girls
5. Three boys
6. Four boys
7. Two girls and one boy
8. Two boys and one girl
9. Three boys and one girl
10. Three girls and one boy
11. Two boys and two girls
12. Four girls
Good lord, the configuration is below four boys. Clearly it's going to be some kind of "Lord of the Flies" horror show.
