The youngest child's guide to survival : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
Being the youngest child in the family is not an easy position to hold. The lastborn is often prone to teasing or bullying from older siblings, and they are often overlooked or underestimated by family members. I am the youngest child in my family, and have often told my stories of the terrors that I as a lastborn had to endure. This thesis is a collection of many of those stories, along with the research I have done on birth order and its effect on a child's personality. I will outline research of the effects that birth order has on a lastbom's personality, and then follow with my own personal account of my difficulties as the youngest child.
