Not all families are the same. Perhaps, as a daughter, you had to be the more responsible & dutiful one while your eldest brother, as a male, was waited upon & taken care off by your parents.

Yes, many times parents cast aside older children in favor of the youngest children in the family.Youngest children in many families are given the most preferential of treatment while the older siblings receive more harsh treatment.This causes rifts.
