What makes oldest children the most unhappiest, depressed, & angriest of all birth orders?


What makes so many oldest children highly resentful of their parents & their siblings? One can say the being the oldest child is one of the unluckiest of all birth orders. Oldest children can't seem to get a break. They are marionettes, having to be on 24/7/365 for their parents & siblings. They have NO individual life to speak of. Is it a wonder they are depressed & unhappy?! However, oldest children in small families have it GOOD but those in large/very large families go through....HELL & MUCH WORSE!

    No, in small families, the position of oldest child is GLAMOROUS, in large/very large families, oldest child is synonymous with SLAVE, NANNY, & MAID for parents & siblings even though mom is SAHM.
