Firstborn Personality

Took this quiz quite a while ago for fun on Lynn and this is what I get: -

Whether or not the child you took this quiz for was actually the first child born into your family, she definitely has a Firstborn Personality. What does that mean? Well, even though she's a natural born leader, she'll want to uphold the status quo, and continue to do things the way she sees her parents doing them. Typically, the firstborn child will not be the family rebel. She will not necessarily try to shake things up. The firstborn child thrives in the glow of all the attention she receives in being the first and only child of the family, for at least a little while - until the younger sibling come along. Being the firstborn, your child has some insight into her parents' personalities; therefore, she absorbs much of their belief system and attempts to impart that to her younger siblings. When the other siblings come along, you can expect your firstborn child (or your child with the firstborn personality) to be an eager little helper and occasional babysitter (where she gets to boss the younger kids around!) The role the firstborn child fulfills enables them to become capable, ambitious, hard-working adults - albeit a bit neurotic.

This is quite true actually. Lynn likes to play the big sister role and boss Hao around. :D She will scold Hao what is the things he cannot do. She knows what food not to be given to Hao. She will play the spy role and reports to me what Hao has done. Whatever food that I give to Hao, she wants her share too. And not only that, she also want to take over my job to help feeding Hao on cereal and porridge. Unfortunately she cant do it well yet and ends up I got to do more cleaning.

Not sure if good or not for her to boss around Hao. At home, she also likes to play the pretend game where she was the "teacher" at school, ordering her friends to do this and that. But I do tell Lynn not to shout at Hao. This is papa and mama's job, not her job. I don't want Hao to have a sister who always scolds him around. In terms of food, Lynn is very generous and she does not mind to share her food with any of us. However when come to toys, she is not that generous yet despite we keep on telling her to share. Sometimes she expects Hao listen to her instructions but she does not understand that Hao is still young for it yet. It is nice to see them play together at home but sometimes it is also headache when they started to fight for the toys. Sigh. Lynn is still pretty much jealous with her brother here and still asking lots of attention from us. Still trying my best to make her understand we love them both and each of them has special place in our heart.

Hmm.. same to my son, he will cry whenever others take his toy.. I guess it's just a normal reaction a kid has. Same like Lynn, he likes to scold the sister, but he's saying it in a nice tone. I guess we have to be the model, talking nicely instead of shouting. Then he will follow as what we do.

Broccoli and Ginger's mommy - We use both nice way and stern way to her depends on the situation.

Agreed with broccoli & ginger's mommy, we hv to b a good model, talking nicely~~ In order for our little one to follow what we did~

Little Prince's Mummy - We do talk nicely to her, explain to her why she cannot do this or that, what she has to do etc etc. We don't normally scold her right away. But I think she's still young to be able to give explanation to Hao. So she will just say No No No to the didi. :(

Lynn is a very protective sister. Like the fact that she plays the role of a spy too...Hao is blessed to have an elder sister to love and play with.

Cheeyee and Claire, boys are demons... I tell you, demons! I have one of my own, and my little boy is like a demon with a cute face. LOL. Sigh... I wish I have a daughter... but for now, one child to look after is more than enough for me to handle.
