Love those quotes, but I grew up in the "rarely" group of the first quote.

What is "normal" for one family may seem completely wacky to another family, so that quote is "spot on".

The Richard Bach quote is true, too, b/c children can live their growing-up years in the same house with the same parents, but birth order makes it different for each of them. I know this from experience: as the oldest of three daughters, more was expected from me, but I also got to do more. Plus, my parents learned what NOT to let my younger sisters do! LOL
