What makes so many oldest daughters from large families feel constantly emotionally needy and

attention seeking? I have noticed that many women who were the oldest in large families are always seeking attention and praise. Some even steal and subvert attention from others, often sabotaging others either in relationships and/or in the work place. If they have daughters, they are not capable of giving their daughters the attention and care that THE LATTER need, oftentimes feeling jealous of the attention that the daughters DO receive. They tend to be emotional vampires, seeking as much attention to themselves as they did not receive the prerequisite parental attention as children.

    OMG, Crafty, YOU are SPOT ON. I know many oldest daughters who have conflict with authority figures. They feel that THEY know MORE than their supervisors. A co-worker was like this and so was MY MOTHER. They COULDN'T interface well w/ superiors.
