What parents SIMPLY DON'T and/or WON'T understand about the oldest child in the family?
I believe parents have a knack for (forgetting) what it was like to be a child. This could also explain why many of them give their children strange names which are bound to get them teased/bullied at school.
Like many people who were the first born I was expected to "know better" whenever I did childish things and shoulder more responsibility around the household.
Ironically the first child also usually is more likely to have more photos taken of him or herself, gets a lot of attention with every sneeze or cough, and all "new' clothes, toys, and other items. Life is good until they start having siblings! :-)

Do you think an only child is better off more than they are with siblings?

Why is that the youngest child gets most attention in a family?Not always, but usually that's the scenario. May be in 70% of the cases..!?!

Who's smarter the first born or the second born (or the third or forth)?I always hear, the first born child is smarter because they have more attention from the parents.... or the second born is smarter because of the older brother/sister, etc... So what do you believe? Are the first born children...

If your were the oldest child in your family were you given huge responsibilities?Were you given responsibilites beyond your years and were you able to accomplish them or did you suffer from failing your parents!
