    What are the 10 ways that the youngest child in the family is THE MOST PRIVILEGED, MOST ADULATED,

    and treated THE MOST PREFERENTIALLY of his/her siblings  by his/her parents?
    As we all know, the youngest child in the family is considered to be the baby.  He/she is the jewel of the family.  As the adage goes,the parents finally GOT IT RIGHT that is why they stopped with him/her as the others were not deemed good enough.Youngest children in multichild esp. large families HAVE IT MADE. They have it THE EASIEST. They coast along in their families. They are punished THE LEAST.  They are given THE MOST parental attention from the beginning. They also have THE LEAST responsibilities.

    I am the youngest child and I have never been privileged. It is untrue that the youngest child is privileged in most ways. I got a job when I was 15, paid for my own phone, car, and anything extra I wanted to do. I'm the one who went to college and has a degree (none of it paid for by my parents). The only way I can think of would be that the parents have already been through many of the same experiences from the previous children and may have learned to handle situations better for the next child.
