Benefits of older siblings

Maybe I don’t belong but maybe I do
Growing up Sammy always thought that he didn’t belong to the family he was born in. He was the youngest of four kids; all his older siblings were a lot older than him, Jim the oldest 35, Ranjith 33 and Deborah 31, Sammy was just 23. He wasn’t allowed to go out and do anything that his siblings did; he would constantly get the reply “when you’re our age then you can do this.” For this reason he was one of those kids who couldn’t wait to grow up. As each year passed he knew that he’d be a grown up soon and be able to do things his older siblings did.
Sammy soon realized that being the youngest had a lot of perks as well. While he was still in school all his siblings had graduated and were working. Since they didn’t have a family of their own, his siblings would spoil him rotten and buy him things. Not just that but the clothes he’d get from his brothers were the best! There wasn’t a shortage of clothes and Sammy never repeated an outfit. He was constantly getting things handed down to him and new things were also bought. Christmas was the best for Sammy; he would get presents not just from his parents but from his three older siblings as well. The oldest Jim was constantly coddling him and Sammy had no objection.

Perks of being the youngest
There are so many things that you could learn from your older siblings. Sammy’s taste in music was eclectic and some were ahead of his years. While kids his age would listen to Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Coldplay, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran. But Sammy enjoyed the classics like The Doors, Queen and The Beatles, mostly music from the 70s up to the 90s.

Lawrence School
Our teachers and staff have been trained to spot anything that’s not only good for your children but warning signs that parents should know about. Generally there are healthy older/younger sibling relationships. But if there are any early on signs of a child not adjusting because of his/her older siblings, our teachers will know about it.
