    To Garifalia, Amen to that! You have described my childhood to a "T". I remember in school, my classmates who had siblings endlessly kvetched. When I told them how HAPPY I was being an only child, they said, sure I can have ANYTHING I wanted!

    While the youngest seem the luckiest, they are often bullied by their older siblings. The youngest child is often a "beta" birth order. In other words, the youngest child is the lowest of the pecking order. ONLY CHILDREN are the happiest!

    To smzclark, the oldest does have its perks. However, the status of being the oldest child in the family is dependent upon family size. The oldest child in small families get the perks/freedoms while oldest in large families are on 24/7/365!

    Youngest children are "luckiest" because they have no responsibilities at all. They are also manipulative spoiled brats who often displace the blame on older siblings. That is why many oldest/older siblings HATE their youngest siblings!

    You're absolutely right. But what gmwilliams is referring to is besides personal experience a recent study that was conducted. I don't know how many participants were involved but surveys and studies are limiting depending on the country studied, etc
