Many think being the youngest child in the family is the best thing ever. However, that's not entirely true. While being the youngest does have its perks, it also comes with a host of situations that may make being the youngest child seem not-so-attractive. And here are ten of them, just so you know of course. So if you're not the youngest child, you'll not miss being one as much. And if you are, well, then this story is simply dedicated to you.
This is, of course, harmless in most cases, but it's also true.
After having tried different parenting methods on your older siblings, they're pros at handling children. So you don't get to enjoy any of their slacks in parenting, because they're so experienced by the time you enter the scene, that you're already in for a tough time.
There's the constant threat of not being the youngest anymore and losing all the perks of being the youngest, because who knows when you might become an older sibling!
Situations like this keep popping up! It might be entertainment for the older siblings, but you're the butt of it all!
Oh yes! Older siblings love to do that. It's almost as if they can't accept a male younger sibling.

This happens a lot too. Just because the clothes looked better on your older siblings in their time, you become the target of all jokes.
There's no escaping then. Once they're alone with you, you're in for some real hard time.
The one with the remote controls the destiny of others too, or at least, that's what it is when it comes to watching television.
You often have to endure lectures from parents that actually address the mistakes that your older siblings once committed. In other words, you get lectures for things that you've not even done!
