Why it's WRONG, even ABUSIVE to make oldest children raise/parent children that they DIDN'T have
which is EGREGIOUSLY UNFAIR to them? Why should parents force some of their children to parent/raise THEIR children? In larger families of 6 and more children, oldest children oftentimes must raise and parent children THEY had no part in, forfeiting their own childhood and adolescence.It's a form of child abuse. Children aren't parents, the'y' re children and should be children.They shouldn't be expected to be parents. Parenting's a job for adults, not children. If a parent can't raise/parent their children by themselves, they shouldn't be selfish nor irresponsible enough to HAVE them. PERIOD!
This is absolutely true. It takes away their freedom and is COMPLETELY unfair. I agree 100%.
It is common in large families for oldest children to parent, even raise their siblings. This oftentimes distracts from their schoolwork, activities & other pursuits they should concentrate on. read more
