Were given different rules, freedoms, expectations than your brother? Can you honestly say you were treated exactly the same?

  • We had the same chores and such. But for whatever reasons, when we hit around 16 and 17 they became more lax on him. And I am only a year older....exactly a year older. I don't get it LOL

  • We were not and still am not treated the same. My brother is 5 years younger and I used to get in trouble when HE did something wrong, because I was older and knew better and should have taught him not to do whatever it was that he did. Because he is a male, he gets treated better even though he is an unemployed alcoholic and I am busting my butt in school and working to support my son while his girls are being raised by stepdads.

  • Oh, geez!! Do NOT get me started!! LOL!!! It was so unfair it wasn't even funny!! He's still treated like he's some sort of god or something. Granted, I know he's the youngest of 4 children and the only boy, but damn!! He act like an ass most of the time and my parents don't seem to get pissed at him.
    I could write a book about all the ways he got away with things!!!
