Alfred Adler was of the view that birth order plays a pivotal role on the personality development. Keeping in view the Pakistani culture, do you agree or disagree with the idea given by Adler? Support your answer with logical argument and real life example.
Yes birth order play v importnt role. In our society eldest son is given all responsibilties of the family. It is, usually, said that elder child is at the place of father so he becomes sole decision maker. We see even eldest child is daughter but chief responsibilties are given to son even if he is younger than child. 2nd born has to compete with elder child to get attention of parents like rabit race. Last child is given most attention by all siblings and parents. He has not to do rabit race with younger. Only born is the most spoiled child as it recieve all the love and attention of family. He has nothing to compete with. Last born and only born get mature late as they are treated like a child for longer period..
