Birth order traits
ents' progressively relaxed parenting style after the second (or third, or fourth, or fifth) child, the youngest children tend to be the most free-spirited. As a result, the baby of the family typically exhibits the characteristics listed in order of birth:
- The youngest child may find their own strategies for gaining attention because parents usually aren't as fixated on lastborns as firstborns. It comes as no surprise that many well-known performers and comedians are the offspring of these people, because they have a propensity to be natural charmers with an outgoing, sociable attitude.
- With their boldness, the youngest also try to grab attention. As a result, unlike their siblings, free-spirited lastborn may be more receptive to unusual experiences and physical dangers.
Lastborn are noted for believing that nothing I do is important. None of their achievements appear to be novel. Their younger siblings have mastered the skills of reading, writing, and talking. Parents thus express less unbridled satisfaction at their children's successes and could even wonder, "Why can't he catch on faster?" The ability to persuade others to acquire what they want may also be learned by the lastborn. When it comes to tasks and rules, parents frequently coddle the youngest, neglecting to hold them to the same standards as their siblings.
