Once a mother told me that when she had her second baby she started feeling that her elder child was very big. She started loving her younger kid more. Though she loved her first kid, the feeling that the younger one is too small made her feel so. Is it the same with all?

Greatl answer to this question.Parents pay MORE ATTENTION to the youngest child because they are seen as more vulnerable thus needing parents more.Parents contend that older children are more able to care for themselves.Wrote a hub re:this question.

Not all families are the same. Perhaps, as a daughter, you had to be the more responsible & dutiful one while your eldest brother, as a male, was waited upon & taken care off by your parents.
Yes, many times parents cast aside older children in favor of the youngest children in the family.Youngest children in many families are given the most preferential of treatment while the older siblings receive more harsh treatment.This causes rifts.
