[ send me this paper ]

Middle Child Syndrome
[ send me this paper ]
31 pages in length. With the trials and tribulations of Jan Brady firmly entrenched in the American psyche, one might have thought that the Middle Child Syndrome was nothing more than a spoiled brat acting out her insecurities no differently than any other child. However, since the time of The Brady Bunch more than two decades ago, the psychological community has come to realize that there is, indeed, an issue of self-esteem with regard to middle children. Parents who have three children do not consciously realize the varied ways in which they relate to each child, inasmuch as the eldest child typically maintains a role of responsibility; the youngest assumes the role as baby; and the middle child gets lost somewhere in the shuffle. Given no identity like his or her siblings, the middle child comes to feel left out and unimportant – two of the most detrimental aspects of health self-esteem. Bibliography lists 23 sources.
