Adulthood & Responsibility : A Frewrite
The journey started from being born and growing up, then pressure to become and take care becomes imminent, All the pressure can lead to a lot of problems for both the children and parents. For example, when the first daughter becomes the second mother, she may not be able to go to school and get an education like other girls her age. She might have to work instead of going to school, and this takes away from her childhood because she has responsibilities that no child should have. The pressure of being a first-born daughter is immense, and it can cause a lot of stress. This is why many first daughters end up marrying young or leaving the family home to pursue their own lives. They need to get away from it all and have some freedom, but this isn’t always possible. Many times they get married off as soon as possible so that the family name doesn’t die out, and then they are stuck in unhappy marriages for years until divorce becomes an option. If a male child is born, he will likely be the first son of the family, and if there are no more sons after him, he becomes the heir to his father’s estate. He will have to work hard for the rest of his life to support himself and his family.
The first daughter has to grow up fast and learn how to take care of herself and the family. She is usually treated as the second mother and has to help with chores around the house, cooking meals for everyone, cleaning the home, taking care of her brothers and sisters, etc. Her role in the family is very important because she will be expected to do a lot more than just sit around all day while her parents work and provide for their children.
All of this stress can lead to early marriage, academic problems, depression and anxiety, as well as other mental health issues.
