    meaning

    Younger children tend to remain forever "the baby", enjoyable to be around, and inspiring compassion.
    They are less inhibited than the eldest child becaue their parents were more relaxed.
    What is the meaning of the underlined parts?
    Thanks

    Hi Again,

    When someone is enjoyable to be around it means that you enjoy yourself when you spend time with them. For example I have fun when I am with my friend Fiona because she is enjoyable to be around.

    Inspiring compassion means that they create compassion in you. Compassion is when you feel or can relate to someone. So younger children being compassion out of others. :)

    inhibited means that you don't do exactly what you want to. For example if I don't talk to the man across the room I could say that I am inhibited by shyness. So if you are less inhibited it means that you are not held back by things. So younger children have less holding them back than older children.

    If you need more examples or a bit further explination just post and either I or someone else will get back to you. :)
