What are the 10 ways that siblingship is DETRIMENTAL to the oldest child in the family?

It seems that in regards to the issue of siblingship, the oldest child in the family tend to get the shaft. He/she is often discarded and/or benignly neglected at the birth of younger siblings. He/she is treated more harshly by parents and even punished for the things younger siblings do. He/she oftentimes have the shortest childhood. In some families, oldest children have NO CHILDHOODS, it is spent raising younger siblings. He/she must be AN ADULT before he/she is ready. In essence, the oldest child has QUITE A HELLISH existence in the world of siblingship.
