There’s something last borns that gets Nigerians talking. But then again, Nigerians are the king of forming wrong impressions about everything, so but sometimes it can get to you. Especially when everything being said is false. Here is a list of wrong things Nigerians say about every last born. We think it’s time to stop.

1. “All last borns are weaklings.”

2. “If you’re a last born, then you’re the parent’s favourite.”

Actually, no. Some parents prefer the first or second child. Sometimes, the last child can even be the one that will receive plenty beating, so what are you saying?

3. “Last borns are the worst cooks. They can’t cook to save their own lives.”

4. “Last borns are always rude, they don’t have respect at all.”

5. “Last borns don’t have to worry about clothes; their elder ones will dash them.”

But what if we don’t like wearing other people’s clothes? Or what if our elder sibling is a different gender? What if we’re bigger than them? This logic is faulty on many grounds, to be honest.

6. “Last borns are always stubborn.”
