Everything changes with time, even the children.
Every parent on this planet would remember that blissful moment when they became parents. The whole process of parenting is very tough and requires a lot of patience but all parents cherish it and love putting their blood, sweat, and tears into it. You lose blood when they develop their teeth, sweat when you have run after them when they are about to make some trouble, and tears of joy over all the happy moments you create with them. And sleep! Oh, I am really sorry mothers of the world but don’t even think you will get that yummy 6 to 8-hour sleep that you once used to. Nope! Not at all. Amidst all this and the crazy thoughts of just abandoning everything and running away, a mother still fastens her seat belt and decides to be a great mother to the child. Because after all, the child isn’t at any fault right.
Fast forward, a few years (depending on your appetite for children), the second-born comes into the family. All those parenting skills that you learned by upbringing your first child, are a complete waste now. None of them will work because for some reason second borns breathe a different air compared to firstborns. There are way too many differences between the two. Second-borns tend to give a harder time to mothers than to fathers. Now, who put that in their DNA is a mystery yet to be solved.
A very talented artist from the U.S.A, Weng Chen, who is also a VR game designer (very cool) decided to illustrate the changes in parenting styles and differences between first and second child.

1. Damn you, Internet
2. Priorities! They have changed so much.
3. Framed pictures > Pictures in phone…
4. Health? Who’s that?
5. I as a second born feel offended.
6. Experience saves you hassle…and money.
7. Basically, secondborns are a headache.
8. Yeah what the heck mofos.
Well, you must have noticed my bias towards second-born children, That is because too am a secondborn. Okay, I’ll be honest here, I don’t relate to all of them but I do relate to a lot of them. We really do get disrespected like that. Oh, dear! Well, things could have been worse. In Economics, the first two children are referred to as utility, or in simple words, love child. Number 3 onwards are referred to as investment goods, or in simpler words “children who will them extra money,” So yeah, there’s that.
Anyways, I am loving these illustrations so far and I hope you guys are too. Scroll down below for some more differences between first and second born children.
9. It’s all about personal preferences. I can’t say anything because one of my motivations to beat cancer was to return and watch Marvel movies.
10. If only you had given the same status to your secondborn.
11. That is mean.
12. Thank god my elder brother is shorter than me.
13. Oh inflation. Poor secondborns!
14. Utility vs Investment.
15. Absolute disgrace.
16. Just wait till that secondborn grows up.
I am sad. We secondborns deserve rights. I am going to start a petition, lets get it signed and make this viral on social media. Oh, wait…I am doing that thing again. So, the comics are true then, huh. It’s okay, our time will come. I really hope you guys had a nice laugh viewing these comics. A big round of applause for Weng Chen for her amazing work. Seriously, jokes apart, I loved every single bit of it. I am damn sure you are a great mother.
