Middle Child
No were are not going to have 3 to have a middle child. I just want to feature this article that I read. I have always believed that a middle child has a distinct characteristics and they are good, most of them anyway. For once, they are strong and very independent. This is from bodyandsoul.com.au. Quite interesting and I believe in them. Yes, despite being sandwiched.. a middle child gets better in time.. just like wine (along with wine supplies, I hope).
Is a "middleton" doomed to face life-long personality issues, or is their birth order actually a springboard to success? Did you know? More than half of all US presidents have been middle children. Other famous middle borns include Bill Gates, Tony Blair, Madonna and Princess Diana. In 2004 Australians were urged by then Federal Treasure Peter Costello to have three kids to boost the country's birth rate. Today those families who obeyed may well be facing the consequences of their patriotism – middle child syndrome. According to the "science" of birth order, being sandwiched between an over-achieving, responsible elder sibling and an indulged youngest child is the cause of all sorts of personality issues and even disorders. It has been labelled a "syndrome". A way to stand out Being affected by your order of birth is inevitable and unavoidable, says Melbourne psychologist Andrew Fuller, whose book Tricky Kids (Finch Publishing) tends to focus on middle-born offspring. "Second-born children arrive with one spot in the family already firmly filled by the bossy and responsible eldest child. This second child, who may go on to be the middle child, needs to find another way to stand out in the family," Fuller says. "And sometimes that can mean they might be more trying or difficult for their parents to understand."
