Are the youngest kid loved most by parents?
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?
I think youngest children are cared for more because they have more needs, it's not that the older one is loved less. I love both of my children, they are 9 years apart. My oldest sometimes felt I paid a lot more attention to the little guy. At first of course I did, he was a baby who was completely helpless. Attention has nothing to do with love.
Do some parents favor one child over another - unfortunately, yes that can happen, but I'd wager to say that the majority of mothers love their children equally.
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.
All the children are born as a precious gifts of life But sometime parents start differentiating about love to their younger or elder child.. In fact every parent is required to nourish or love their younger or elder children equally and in the same way. Else these gifts would be of no use for them. But the main problem lies in us where we give extra attention and care to their youngest child thinking that the elder child has already received due love and care . This leads the elder kids to feel isolated and as a result they feel more insecure.. Thus .parents need to look at this point and do good parenting.for the betterment of their children.
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.
i'm the youngest in the family but not the most taken care of kid. it was my eldest brother. guess not lucky enough to have the chance to live the life of a youngest kid in the family.
Of ALL birth orders, youngest children are treated the most preferentially. They are also the most favored by parents. After all, they are BABIES of the family. Need we say more. read more
I dnt know the psychology...
But I guess after the first child ,since most of them have at least 2yr gap, so they show a lot of attention on the newborn and that continues so on and so forth ...... and thats how the younger ones get more attention.
My Dh in youngest and I always get to hear from my BIL and co-sis that he always gets more attention frm his mother.
I'm eldest in my family but growing up i always used to get more attention.
I guess it differs frm family to family.

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..!?!
