It’s National Middle Child Day! 

Inspired by a news article her grandson submitted in the 1980s, Elizabeth Walker says she wanted to create a national day to honor those children “born in the middle of families” and who sometimes feel “left out”.

Below are just a few myths about being a middle child:

  • Most middle children are peacekeepers. Since they are sandwiched between other siblings, they are often obsessed with fairness and balance.
  • Middles don’t have huge egos.
  • Middle children have to try a little harder to “be heard” or get noticed.

Do you agree or disagree? Are you an oldest, middle or youngest child… How has your birth order impacted your personality?
