Along the lines of the Gender Distribution thread, I’m interested in going into discussion about family placement, age ranges and such.
For instance, I am a girl, the firstborn of two children. My younger brother was born two and a half years after me.
I think this is a somewhat engaging topic. I’ve read that placement and distance between age has much to do with your attitude, career choices, etc. and I’m curious about what others think about it.
In my situation, I used to think (and occasionally still do) that my brother got way more freedoms and far fewer punishments than I ever did, and he was ALOT worse than me. Of course, he thinks exactly the opposite, although I’m not quite sure how he comes to that conclusion.
Funny thing is, my husband is the youngest of two, his sister and he are about the same number of years apart as my brother and I. Many of the things that bugged me about my brother are the same things that bug me about Byron. (I’m sure that I get on his nerves the way his sister used to, as well.)
Anyone care to get into this with me? Thoughts about “blending places”, or placement/gender having impact on your life choices, etc.?
