8.  You expect your child to help you parent.

There’s a big difference between being a sibling and a parent, but time and time again I see parents bringing child after child into this world expecting the older siblings to change diapers, pick them up from school and damn near care for the child like they created it.  Teaching older siblings about contributing to the family and being responsible for their brothers or sisters is one thing, but it’s irresponsible for a parent to take away one kid’s childhood to ensure another sibling has one. An older brother or sister should be there for their younger sibling, not have to take care of them.
