    I would say that raising the last or youngest can also be a challenge,  parents can tire out to the point that they will let these children do and get away with more things then the first child they may raise.
    Or they may adjust to a more tolerant attitude , when really since the world is getting worse in peer pressure and bullying
    There is no place to slack up on parenting.
    But be their for them till they can take care of them self
    We either do our responsibility or the world will do theirs .

    parents spoil the youngest to the core. I admit, I spoil my youngest son too

    Youngest ones are the most spoiled ones. May be the reason that they are more pampered being the youngest member of the family. Secondly parents are already too tired by paying maximum attention to the elder kids.

    Take this from a mother of two. Our biggest mistake was being too overprotective. My oldest is now 6 and he is sick more then my three year old, he is weaker when it comes to decision making. He is picky and spoiled. When he was born, we wouldn't let anyone touch him! We didn't even let out own mothers carry him. His first mechanically separated piece of chicken was when he was probably 8 moths old. We were scared he would choke. Compare this to my 3 year old. He ate the same chicken when he was 4 months old! He never gets sick. He is stronger and more responsible. He makes good decisions considering he is only three. He loves more, cares more. I wish we had listened to our parents when they told us to let him be. Let him run. Literally, we didn't let him play in the park if there were any children around in fear of him getting hurt or bullied or getting germs. LOL! I know i know. I was crazy!
