Oldest Children

5 Things Oldest Children Hate About Being Oldest Children

1. It’s not fair that your parents scrutinized your friends so much. By the time the other children came along, your parents didn’t even know their friends’ names.
2. Sometimes you want to go off with your own friends. Having to let your little brother or little sister tag along is not cool.
3. Why should you have to stay home and miss the concert just to baby sit?
4. You’d like to live your own life and not always be told that you have to behave perfectly to set an example for your siblings.
