Who Is Really the Clueless Sibling?

by Big Sis
(Long Island, NY)

If the youngest child of the immediate family "needed" the constant, daily attention of the mother and father for the last 30 years, while the other two siblings were forced to live their lives without it, then why on earth does this same youngest child think she has rights to talk about the lack of attention the older two siblings give to their parents now that the parents are elderly and need help 3 decades later?


The baby of the family has now started bad-mouthing her older two siblings behind their backs because she now sees she needs to give to her parents instead of take from them. I say tuff!

She and her children got all the attention for the past 30 years and now she and her children can take care of them in return. She and her children have no right to even attempt to say that no one helps them and no one bothers with them when the fact really is that every one else was pushed away from them 30 years ago!

I really should have changed my address and phone numbers.
