Speech (sibling equality)

Sibling Equality

I feel hard done because the oldest child hardly ever gets the blame plus the youngest child always gets the shaggy hand me downs, but even worse I have an older brother so I sometimes get boy clothes! I don't want to be walking out in public with my brothers big clunky shoes that are 4 sizes too big which makes me look like bigfoot would you like to been seen like that? I don't think so and of course they get to be the first to do or try everything, I wanted to be like Sir Edmund Hillary and explore things first.

Put your hand up if you have ever got the blame for something you never did and it was your brother or sister’s fault.

Those people that just put your hand up will know what I am talking about but for the others this is a story that has happened in my life, my brother started tackling me like I was a rugby player so he was in the wrong but my parents only saw me attempting clumsily to tackle him back so of course I got the blame.

If you're the youngest you always get the shaggy hand me downs even worst I get boys mouldy, oversized, camo jerseys or even cringe worthy jackets, my parents say there is no point in wasting money on new shoes when your brother has a speck of pink on his shoes so I get obligated to wear them because pink is a girls colour but really every colour is everyone's colour. Right?

It’s so unfair that they get to do or try things first he gets to go places alone , they also get a phone first. When they do get something that you really want they run round the house with too much excitement  making you even more jealous than you already are. They will keep on sprinting round the house so excited until you get really really  angry!

So to finish of I would like to remind you all the the things that annoy me about being the youngest child, number 1 the oldest never gets the blame, number 2 the youngest always gets shaggy hand me downs and last of all they always get to do or try things first, so all those parents out there make sure you treat your children the same. But sometimes it can be handy to be the youngest because sometimes you can do your cute smile and get away with it. Don't get me wrong most the time my parents treat us equally.
