My essential question is, “Why are the first born always favored?”. I think the first born are always favored because they were the first child a couple ever had together. Therefore the child will always have a special place in the parents heart. In the parents eyes the first child can do no wrong. In my drawing there is the first born child holding a grade paper with a B and the daughter is holding one with an A. Showing that the first born is always favored.
