All in all, the middle child in the family is the one who is ALWAYS UNDER-always underappreciated, undervalued, and underestimated. He/she seems to be in purgatory so to speak. The middle child is between a rock and a hard place in the family.
Does that change, say, in a family of 4? How does that work in larger number of children?
Middle children in smaller families of 3-4 children maybe overlooked sometimes but they are not completely lost in the shuffle; however, middle children in large to very large families just.....well, fade into the nebulous familail background!
