What makes oldest children the most cast aside, underappreciated, overused, and the most


taken for granted children in the family? Oldest children in families tend to be dethroned rather quickly. They are oftentimes waysided in favor of younger siblings. Parents even admitted to this. Oldest children are just yesterday's news so to speak. They have to be on THEIR OWN faster than other birth orders at similar ages. They also must be THE ADULTS in the family. In other words, they are not seen as children but are expected to toughen up, grin, and bear it!

    This is SO true. Oldest children do catch HELL in their families. They must be protoadults from early childhood. Oldest children have such SAD lives.
