LAST BORN CHILDREN
Last born children: common traits/characteristics of last-born children
The last child to be born in any family seems to have a lot going for them, and they either become great achievers or become lost in the attention they receive. Depending on parental influences and styles, they may come out pretty well-balanced than their peers or come out as big rotten spoilt brats.
Advantages of being a last born
1. More parental care and attention
2. Less expectations from parents since they already learned from their older children
3. Last borns have more family support and are likely to take more risks in life – they always have a place to fall, or so they feel.
4. They tend to real exude more maturity and wisdom than their peers – I think it’s because they are born from older, more mature and wiser eggs. Last borns are biologically, old embryos.
Disadvantages of being a last-born child The lows are very few, but some are potentially destructive and disadvantaging
. If parents tend to show favouritism towards the last born child, they may become really spoilt and become low achievers
. Last born kids, being very close to their parents, tend to carry most of the family’s responsibility – which comes naturally for many since they are warm, caring and affectionate. For some, it can be a burden when their caring nature and their closeness to their parents leave them with all the responsibilities if their brothers and sisters don’t care much. . The youngest child does not get to do a lot of physical activities with their parents, as most parents either become less active or less playful with age.
. The last child in the family is very unfortunate in that, he or she tends to lose parents at a very young age, or at a younger age than his or her older siblings. Older siblings enjoy healthy parents for a long time, and enjoy the support of their parents when they have children of their own, while younger siblings are lucky to have parents around when they start their own families.
