Why is that the youngest child gets most attention in a family?


Not always, but usually that's the scenario. May be in 70% of the cases..!?!

    Youngest children also have the opportunities that oldest children in the family NEVER, DON'T have, especially in large/very large families in terms of education and socioeconomic improvement. Written hubs on this.

    It's EXTREMELY RARE for an oldest child in a LARGE FAMILY to get THE MOST attention. In fact, they receive THE LEAST or NO ATTENTION AT ALL unless they are called to .....SERVE parents & siblings!

    In small families, this is true but in larger families, oldest children are CAST ASIDE, DISCARDED in favor of younger/youngest children.
