What are the 5 ways that the sibling relationship is based upon UNEQUAL parity as far as the oldest/

older children in the family are concerned from childhood and even throughout adulthood? In sibling relationships, it is the oldest/older children who carry MOST, if not ALL, of the weight. It is a ONE way street for the oldest/older children while the youngest/younger children seldom take an active participatory role in the sibling relationship. In childhood, this is understandable depending upon respective ages of the siblings in question but in adulthood, the oldest/older siblings bears the emotional, psychological, and the financial burden/responsibility of the sibling relationship.
