You rule the roost and get to boss the younger ones around all day long. So, the boys don’t want to play barbies with you–too bad! What you say goes, because you’re the queen. But, as you grow older, you’ll realize that being the oldest comes with certain responsibilities and privileges that you’d do well to take advantage of. Just, never forget about your little ones. Here’s why being the oldest sibling is the absolute freaking best.
1. Guess who the younger ones run to when mom and dad are being mean…that’s right–you
And you just get to love ’em to pieces.
2. You get to teach them everything you know
They’ll believe whatever you say, so be tough, but be honest.
