Life is rough if you happen to be the middle child of the family. Well, not really but let’s pretend like it is. Often considered the “forgotten” child, the middle child supposedly suffers from the hand-me-downs of the older child and all the attention going to the youngest child. There is probably a portion of truth to the “Middle Child Syndrome” but I think that also has many different factors that can come into play. I am a middle child, but I have two sisters and being the only boy I never really suffered from any of those things middle children complain of.
How to celebrate – Be proud of being a middle child. Show your middle child some special love today. Look at all the things you receive as a child, not what you didn’t get.
