National Middle Child Day Fitting For The Large Irish Families!

middle child

The Middle Child has been the focus of many research studies about birth order, but the research seems to contradict itself.  Some studies found middles to be less driven, have lower self-esteem, and have a negative outlook.  Then there are the studies that show middles are better leaders, 52% of our presidents were middles, and Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln, and Madonna were all middles.  Middles become more independent, think outside the box, and are good employees.  As the oldest in my family, I can only base my experience with my sibling as the ultimate research.  I think my sibling follows the pattern of the second middle, driven, good employee, and a leader.  How about your middle sibling?  Wish all the middles of the world a Happy National Middle Child Day!
