...entitlement.... All said though, it's a "stereotype" because, I don't think this is true at all!
People tend to think the youngest is spoiled, overly-pampered, and babied. This was definitely not the case with me.
generally people think the youngest child gets away with a lot of troublesome things. the older child is supposed to " set an example "
Not always, but sometimes they can be easier going, a little lazy because they can get older siblings to do things for them, and often they like being the baby and don't want to mature quite as fast.
I agree with everything posted here and have been wrongfully stereotyped because of my birth order (I'm the youngest). I've also read that the youngest is usually either the MOST or LEAST successful of all siblings - which of course depends on how you define success. My mother is the youngest of eight and believes she got less attention because her parents were "tired" by the time she showed up. My fiance says the same, so sometimes the youngest does get the short end of the proverbial stick.
The parents usually go way easier on the youngest child. This is because they tried to be strict with the first kid and it didn't work, so their just like forget it. lol
Youngest children are overly dependent, passive, spoiled rotten, extremely selfish, uncaring regarding others, takers, avoiders of any type of responsibility, entitled, wanting to be the center of attention, bratty, insufferable, & a pain in the #****. They are also woefully immature, if not infantile! I have met many youngest children who are like what I have described. Also, they are highly intrusive, nosy, & ALWAYS WANT THEIR WAY! Yes, they can be quite the enfant terrible!

ARE there MORE advantages or disadvantages being THE YOUNGEST child in the family? Why?Furthermore, how does FAMILY SIZE influence how the youngest child is treated in his/her family? Also, how does family size determine THE STATUS of the youngest child in comparison to his/her OLDEST sibling?
