Oldest children are expected to grow up.....FAST. They are strongly admonished for acting like children. Middle children are well.....have to be on THEIR OWN for good or bad as they are seldom, if ever, noticed. Sometimes they run the gamut in seeking attention- either being very good or....very bad. Well, the youngest has it made....h/she is THE BABY & can't do no wrong. Also, the youngest child can be spoilt.....& spoilt rotten. They are the most immature because they are coddled & babied beyond the appropriate age. The youngest child can get his/her way in ways that the older children in the family.....simply CAN'T! This explains why oldest children are very mature, middle children waver between maturity & immaturity, depending upon the circumstances, & youngest children, without exception, are eternally immature. Your thoughts?

If you are or have ever been a teacher, what is your birth order in your family?Sounds crazy that I'm asking, I know, but I'm wondering if most teachers who feel successful in their jobs are from a family with siblings. I have a feeling that only children, for example, prefer to work...
