Why is IT in adult sibling relationships that the younger siblings are THE MOST SELF-CENTERED, even


SELFISH, expecting oldest/older siblings to assist, even support them financially when the latter should be able to support themselves & not be dependent upon the oldest/older siblings? In multichild families, it is oftentimes quite commonplace, even rife for adult oldest/older siblings to financially assist, even support adult younger siblings, much to the former's detriment & that of their significant others, spouses, & children while the younger siblings are enabled, expecting such financial assistance/ support. When is enough.....ENOUGH? Such is NEVER reciprocated by younger siblings.

    EXACTLY, unfortunately this carries over to adulthood which resulted in oldest children taking the burden while youngest children oftentimes coast through life.

    In small families, this seldom occurs but in large/very large families, it is quite commonplace.
