Top Ten Worst Things About Being the Eldest Child

The Top Ten
1 Getting blamed for everything

Happens to me every single day. I swear I'm so sick of it.

I can completely relate to this...

2 Having to help your younger siblings with homework

My sister doesn't have homework, but I do, and no one helps me with mine.

Luckily I don't have to do this. Her homework is harder than mine!

3 Being treated differently than your other siblings

This is SOOO true. My sister always bullies me by touching my private parts and saying rude words. But when I tell that to my parents they say "Okay you can handle it on your own" and when I try to ask my sister to stop it's the end of the world. And when I tease my sister she'll start screaming and my parent will start scolding me and telling her to ignore me when they hardly scold my sis!

My younger sister always gets the better treatment than me. For her high school graduation, she got money and a buffet. When I graduated from high school, I got NOTHING AT ALL. So unfair!

4 Having to be responsible for everything
5 Having to put up with your other siblings

When I want a lie in:
"Get up!"
When my friends come round they don't leave me alone with them.
Alone time:
*Calls my name*
Me: ugh!

6 You have to respect your younger siblings when they don't respect you

So true. I'm 19, and my 15 year old sister touches my penis! My parents say she doesn't understand. She's a teenager! This is sexual harassment!

I always think „do I look like I care?" when I get told to respect my siblings.
Either way I will go complete rage mode if my siblings even dare to try to make it like a fascist dictatorship with them in charge.

7 Having to go to their friend's parties

No, but she has to go to my parties, which I don't mind.

Doesn't apply to me

8 Being expected to be a good role model
9 If they loose something, you have to give them yours.
10 Doing chores

I'm 26, and my sister's 20. I have to do chores, and my sister does not have to.

The Contenders
11 Being servants to younger kids

My cousins used to make me do stuff for them instead of doing it themselves

12 Everything is automatically your fault despite the fact that you are not even involved in the problem
13 Getting yelled at the most
14 Getting dethroned by your new sibling
15 The younger sibling always get the better treatment
16 Always being last
17 Having to share everything you have

I had all the attention to myself for 6 years until my sister was born and I had to share MY ENTIRE LIFE with her...

18 Cleaning up after them
19 Visiting relatives hardly acknowledge your existence
20 You will likely die first
21 Parents always defend the younger siblings
22 Your popularity declines

When I was little, I was the only kid (and the youngest) for 6 years and I was very popular with everyone. After my sister and cousins were born, that all changed forever. They all are now more popular than me :(

Why does this matter?

23 No one pays attention to you
24 Being bullied by younger siblings
25 Your parents have high expectations for you

Had to have high, high hopes for a living...
