Siblings: How different Are They, 2

 Each child in a family experiences a different environment growing up. For example, each has a different relationship with:

Their parents and extended family members (e.g., some elderly relatives may have died before the youngest child was born)

Parenting style (e.g., often most strict with the eldest child and much more relaxed with subsequent children)

Other siblings (e.g., eldest, middle child(ren), youngest child)

Pets (e.g., a puppy versus a senior dog, or no pets at all

Different classmates and teachers - sometimes a different school

Perhaps a difference in financial security

Different health issues, especially with older family members

There may be many more examples

More tomorrow
