What are the 10 ways that the oldest child in the family is THE MOST ABUSED, MOST RESENTFUL, and

UNHAPPIEST in addition to being treated THE MOST DIFFERENTIALLY of all his/her siblings by his/her parents? Oldest children in multichild, esp.large families are held to THE TOUGHEST standards. They often have NO childhood nor adolescence, having to be adults as soon as possible. They are tossed aside by their parents, left to raise themselves & siblings. In fact, they are THE REAL PARENTS of their families. They are also PARENTIFIED children. They have it THE HARDEST, they assume family responsibilities earlier than other siblings in the family. They have NO INDIVIDUAL life.
