Regarding birth order relationships, why are oldest siblings the giving, more independent,


conscientious, & responsible; middle siblings floating in & out, being the familial chameleon; & the youngest being the most selfish, happiest, freest, & most irresponsible of all? Why in the sibling relationship, the oldest is one who is ALWAYS GIVING while the younger siblings are ALWAYS TAKING? Give specific answers please.

    Oh no, not assumptions at all but facts, oldest children always have to BE THE ONE, middle children are well....while the youngest is the spoilt one. I have seen this in my mother's family. She's the oldest of 10. No, I am not the oldest at all.

    You're quite welcome indeed. I have read on and studied birth order personally. Kevin Leman has many good books on birth order.

    I read that book, excellent book by the way. I also read most of Dr. Kevin Leman's birth order books. I have repeatedly observed from my mother & other oldest children how they give, give while the younger siblings take & DON'T do a thing.
