    I told people I'm graduating from 8th grade

    and they laughed at me.. Is it bad that I'm getting older or they just randomly thought of a joke when I was speaking to them?-?

    Youngest of the Youngest of the Youngest

    I am the youngest child of the youngest child (my father) of the youngest child (his father). They use that as an excuse to mock me - not meanly. I think it's just because as the youngest child, I've got to be made fun of, because I really don't get enough of it from my older...

    Being the Youngest, Can Suck.

    I'm the youngest of 5. It was not easy to see my older siblings do whatever they want, but, for me, I couldn't do anything. Since I was the youngest, I was supposed to learn from their mistakes. I never was able to make my own mistakes, tread on my own water. It's almost like I...

    Most people say the youngest child has it the

    easiest. there is that nasty little rumour about how the youngest child of a family is constantly pampered and coddled. But if you’re the youngest, like me, you’ll know that’s not true. we’re forever referred to as the baby – it’s a name that’s stuck with us for...

    I hate being the youngest of 4,

    and the only girl. I get treated unfairly and don't get to do as much as my brothers did at the age I am now. Two brothers completely left out of my life because of my Dad but still don't contact any of us either. Being the youngest sucks completely.

    I hate being the youngest.

    Not hate but I hate being young. Despite the fact my iq is superior to most adults people do NOT take my serious. At all. I'm the "baby" of the family. I'm the "spoiled" one. Mistakes I made at the age of 5? Still talked about to date.

    The hardest part has been realising

    that I've passed my older siblings in maturity. It's a bizarre feeling. Even then, I'll still always be seen as the baby, but that's ok. They need to see me that way so I let them.
