    Youngest - Most Responcibility

    I am the youngest of three children. I am the one who has to be perfect. I am not spoiled because my sister (20) and my brother (23) are spoiled and get everything they want and get away with doing drugs and drinking all the time. My parents tell me all the time that if i ever do...

    I Was The Little Brother

    I have a sister and a half sister, both are older than me. My sister is much older than me, but my half sister is only maybe a year or two older. I got along with them fairly well. My half sister was a major tomboy so I always treated her almost like a brother at times. I didn't...

    Three brothers and one sister and I'm the youngest. Luckily they all love me and don't pick on me like some families. I love and hate being the youngest. I love it because my brothers and sister treat me better and love me for it. Most of them are all away from home so they don't...

    Youngest Of Three

    Being the youngest doesn't really seem that bad, but when you are the youngest, you realize why it is. Like when you can't stay out past 9:30, when you're 16, because you're oldest sister wouldn't tell my mom where she was. Or when everyone treats you like you're 5 because "you...

    Baby Of The Family But You Would Never Know It!

    I have 3 sisters all of whom are older than me by 7 years, 14 years, and 15 years. My sister who is 15 years older than me always makes me feel older. She is very irresponsible. I have always taken care of her. She has two teenage sons who I have always helped raise financially...

    As the youngest person in my family (including cousins), you can assume I get teased a lot. Mostly by my cousins. Everyone is much older than me. My sister is 6 years older than me and my cousins are 8 to 11 years older than me. There's no one my age. No one really notices me...

    Its Not All Peaches And Cream

    Everywhere I go I always hear that the baby of the family gets whatever they want. Not here lol. Also, every time my sister does something wrong they always expect me to end up doing the same. No, just stop.

    Since I'm the youngest by 1 year everyone

    overlooks what I'm doing to see how my brother is doing. Nobody in my family even talked about going to high school once but was all over my brother when he did.

    People used to teased me for being the youngest, hence the favorite of my parents. I came from a big family, with both parents working. My eldest sister used to baby-sit me when I was still a kid. I remember that she would pinch my buttocks or ear lobe whenever I...

    Definitely "the Baby".

    I'm the youngest child in my family. My sister's 22, my brother's 20 and I am 18. Growing up, there were quite a few advantages to being the "baby". My mother always babied me, and my other two siblings usually had more responsibilities than I did. Though it was nice at...

    Yup, I am the youngest!

    It is not something that I hated, I am okay with it, it doesn't matter much to me, to be honest. I already don't relate to all my siblings, so what difference would it make to be the oldest or the youngest, but I always like to play a little game, the "what if" game. I don't...
