When you’re the youngest sibling, you often fall victim to the constant stereotypyes of being the naughty one, the baby , having to receive hand me downs – you name it! Whilst everyone is busy stereotyping the second sibling, they’ve missed what that sibling has worked out! Here is those 20 things only the sibling number 2 would know.
You’ll Always Be Protected
Older siblings are often very protective of their baby brothers/sisters so you’ll never have to worry when you’re in school or anywhere in life.
You’ll be the most fashionable
So many sibling number 2’s fall guilty to stealing their favourite pieces of clothing, cosmetics, jewellery and even shoes so when you grow up and build apon their great style, you will be bound to be the most stylish.
The Elder Sibling Makes The Decisions
Which makes it less likely that the blame will be put on you! The youngens don’t get away with everything through chance, it is tactically done!
You’ll Act As a Agony Aunt
You’ll be the one everyone comes to in their hour of need and when they need a good rant about another member of the family.
This Makes You The Family Fountain Of Wisdom
You know all the gossip and what everyone is thinking but no one is saying so everyone will want to be on your sweet side.
You’re Parents Are Already Prepped
You’re second in line to all the crazy things your older sibling has done, will make it less drama when you go through a crazy phase.
But This Also Went Against You
Your parents had higher expectations of you to learn from your older siblings mistakes.. how unfair!
You’ll Have A Free Tutor
Your elder sibling will always be ahead of you in school so you always have someone to go to when you need help with your maths homework, or to check out what they did when assigned a hard project.
This Also Worked Against You
As you never had any exam sympathy as your older sibling had already done them and your parents had already been through the stress of one lot of exams! You also run the risk of following in their shadow and feeling like you have to achieve their high grades.
You Have Tons Of Names
Unfortunately being the youngest, when being spoken to, you could be called a real of family names before it gets to yours!
You Never Grow Up
You’ll always be the youngest and everyone will always see you as the baby, this might seem terrible in your teens but will be great when you’re older!
You’ll Have Incredible Memories
Your best times will be when your older sibling was left in charge, whether it was for 10 minutes or when they’re older enough be your babysitter.
You Realised Earlier
Santa, the tooth fairy, Easter bunny and all your favourite fictional characters were all spoilt by your older sibling as soon as they realised the revelation that none are real!
Being The Most Teased
Yes, I’m sure a lot of younger siblings will agree they were often the ones that were most picked on and teased.
You’re Always Accused Of Being The Favourite
But hey, can you blame them? If you’ve been through all that being the youngest then you deserve the favourite title!
