Older Kid vs Younger Kid

Is Life tougher being the Little kid, or Older kid???

Little kid

Sameer(age 6)-

You could get blamed from big kids. You don’t  get so much attention. They could say mean to you. Older kids ignore you. Big kids mess your docs. Big kids pinch you. Mishka is mean too. They say ewwww you smell like fart. They embarrass you. They can say your face is dirty. “Ugh.”👅

See its harder  being the little kid!!!

Little kids always have to be bossed around from “older kids”. Older kids get to do fun things just because they are “older”. Since the older kid gets to boss you around, you have to play the games your older brother or sister wants you to play. Your older brother or sister can mess with you any time they’d like. The older kid can choose if they want to tell you something cool or not. The older kid gets to blame you. They can blackmail you. The older kid gets more attention because they are “older”. The older kid can also embarrass you. Such as “mihir pooped his pants”. They are the only person to play with. So if they are playing something boring, you couldn’t play with anyone else. See how hard it is to be younger?😩

You’re probably thinking: “Little kids deserve more respect! Older kids don’t treat them well enough! They always have to be the bossed around by their elders!” Well, not exactly. And you’re most likely thinking, “Little kids have to deal with their older brother or sister all the time!” Well, that’s not how it goes for me. For example, I’m always the one who gets a junk load of homework for spring break, while Sameer and Mihir are joyfully playing downstairs in the basement, jumping around, pretending to be dinosaurs. These are some of the reasons why older kids usually refer to their little brothers or sisters as, “Annoying”. Also, I’m not meant to be bossy. I’m just trying to guide kids, on good ideas, and what are some things they should do. Shouldn’t older kids at least try to teach them what is right and wrong? And how to handle those “School Situations”? And what about responsibility? The older you get, the more responsibilities you will automatically have. So many chores to do, while the younger ones are just playing around finished with their, “One Chore” 😩 Also, being the oldest, you get much less attention when there is a little kid around, and you get blamed a lot too. Just because you’re the “Big Kid”. And whenever you’re playing a game, one of the littlest kids, such as Mihir won’t be playing fair, so right when you’ll start requesting him to play right, he’ll begin screaming at you right away, and yelling at you, saying that you’re not the boss of him. See how hard it is to be the older kid? Older kids sure deserve much more respect from their younger ones these days. 😟
