Why is siblingship IMMENSELY BENEFICIAL to the youngest child in the family and NOT to the
middle and oldest children in the family?Youngest children are KINGS/QUEENS as far as the world of siblingship go. They have the most free and longest of childhoods and adolescence. They have privileges that their older siblings, especially the oldest child, DID NOT have. They also grow up in more affluent socioeconomic conditions than their older counterparts, Especially in medium large/large/very large families, youngest children have opportunities to further their education and all aspects of their lives that their older siblings did not. Youngest children are often treated THE BEST!
I doubt the validity of your premise. Although the ideas you are offering are true in some situations, they are not the rule. There are many factors involved which vary from family to family.
Youngest children have IT MADE.They have little or no responsibilities. They do things for which older siblings are punished because the former did not know any better.They have the LONGEST childhoods. They are the KINGS/QUEENS of their families.
Again, this may be so in many circumstances, but not all. You might want to ask more questions that people can answer with some freedom. Your question sounds like a hub rather than a question.
It is generally younger/youngest children who benefit from having siblings. They have siblings who will be there for them in positive & negative times. They also feel that they can discuss things w/siblings whom they can't discuss with their problems because of a varied generational divide. They feel more comfortable w/ siblings than their parents.
Many youngest children love the envelopment of the sibling bond. They are protected & shielded from the harsher & more negative aspects of life by their oldest/older siblings. In many instances, they are the centers of attention from their oldest/older siblings. In many instances, they may be spoiled, indulged, & pampered by their parents w/the help of oldest/older siblings.
Youngest children have the freest & most unencumbered of childhoods/adolescence. They never have to raise or help w/younger siblings. They also have the least responsibilities of their siblings. They probably will have opportunities that their oldest/older siblings WON'T have. They will always be on the receiving, not the giving end in terms of siblingship. They will have individual time, privacy, & the freedom to pursue their goals, wants, & desires which oldest/older children couldn't.
