What are THE THINGS that oldest children in the family resent about youngest children?
Whether true or not, older children always complain that the younger one is more pampered by parents and get lot more love and lot less scolding. If the younger child is more intelligent and smart, performs well in school or excels in any extra curricular activity, the elder ones might resent it. Amid girls, if the younger one is far more beautiful and is found to get more attention from people on account of it, the elder one will definitely resent it.
I believe it really depends on the age gap.
Parents for the most part become more lenient when it comes to their expectations and the punishment of their youngest children.
It's difficult to say if it's all favoritism or if the parents simply gained wisdom over the years to learn not to expect "perfection".
From my point of view most resentment would be geared towards the parents and not the younger sibling. An immature oldest child may blame their younger sibling but a mature one would not.
