When we adults decide to become parents and have more than one kid, the consistency of splitting things evenly among the kids is in the top-10 list of what makes a decent parent. I’m not sure when the if-he-has-that-then-I-get-one-too syndrome starts and I’m sure it’s different for every gang of siblings.
Maybe it starts with the older kid wanting to get fed a bottle too, because his baby sister gets to be fed by mom and lie peacefully in her arms. Or maybe the right-of-equality starts when the kids are toddlers and the parents have to buy an equal amount of ice cream for each sibling.
