Status of oldest children vary based upon family size.
In small families, oldest children are more of the leaders and advisers while in large to very large families, oldest children are often unappreciated and put upon servants. What is your take on this subject?
Not true in any family I know, but I suppose it could happen. However, I do know that other's perception that oldest children in large families are "put upon servants" can be a very strong perception.
Reminds me of something A. Lincoln said, "If you call the tail a leg you can say a dog has 5 legs, but that does not make the tail a leg."
RTalloni: Oldest children in large to very large families are parentified children and put upon servants who must be available 24/7/365 to their parents and younger siblings. Their childhoods are compared to days in the winter solstice-very short
I am the youngest in my family.. I also am the leader, and the one who takes care of everything.. Plus I am the only one with kids.. yet I still get all the responsibility.. So I guess it depends on the family. For my kids I strive to make sure each child is appreciated for who they are and what they can offer.
I only know about me. I am the firstborn child, the only girl, with only three children in my family. No one let me slack off. And that included my parents, teachers and community leaders. My father raised me to be a leader. And he didn't tell me it was a "Man's World". In fact, he told me not to "Graduate in Diapers". He pushed me to go to school and get good grades. College was in my future. I don't know what it's like to be the oldest in a big family. I only know that if you have a big family, there's a possibility that someone is bound not to get their needs met.
