Calling all youngest children, how did you feel about being the youngest one in your respective families? Do you have more freedom that your oldest siblings at the same age? Were you the family favorite? How did your oldest/older siblings regard and/or treat you?
I am the baby of the family.
Personally, I felt okay about being the youngest. While I was not the family favorite, I did get away with more and was given a little more attention than the rest, but not to the extent that my other siblings were jealous. I definitely have more freedom at this age than my other siblings had at my age. I think part of that reason is that my mom has already had experience with three other kids being 24. So she's learned a little more and is better able to deal with the crazy 24 year old me.
