— So, do you think it makes any difference…
where you’re born in the family?
— Definitely, I think the first born children
always have a harder time than the others.
Parents have a lot more rules then… and
expect so much more…
— I totally disagree. In my family, and in
others I know, the parents were really careful
to treat all the kids the same. You can’t be a
very good parent if you treat all the children
— No, that’s not true at all. You can be an
excellent parent but once you’ve been through
the experience of having one… well, things
change… you will be different… approach
— That’s probably true… so, maybe parents
get better and better… the more children they
— I think there’s some truth in that… well
that’s certainly what my oldest sister says!
