What makes OLDEST children the MOST ENVIOUS of all birth orders & why?
The oldest are usually entitled to more and are treated more maturely as they grow up.

I only see this envy if the younger child gets a disproportionate amount of attention after being a baby or the older child is assigned chores and tasks to help with the younger child without commensurate rewards or recognition.
In short, if you give them extra work but not extra privileges or neglect them because you think the younger one needs all the time and attention.
