Ender is a third child in a society where parents are only allowed to have two children. His parents were given permission to have a "third" because of the promise his siblings showed..... in the end, they weren't good enough for what the program (government) had planned for them. This put Ender in the position of being different (a third) and of promoting an enormous amount of jealousy (Peter).
