    Well, if you can call it a blessing; you are basically left alone to do your own thing. The first born child is of course doted on. The last born is of course the baby. The middle child is just that, stuck in the middle.

      Thank you for your response. This is true, middle children are in familial purgatory or the Graylands. I have written several hubs on middle children if you are interested.

    I don't think being the middle child, specifically, had too many advantages for me. But I was the middle girl child between two boys and being the only girl had it's perks.

    Since I'm a middle child, I personally think there's less expectation put on you compared to the older child. Not that they ignore you, it’s just that the first child is always the darling.

    Then with the younger child, parents spend more time with them especially if there’s a good few years gap between 2 and 3. Being a middle child, means you can do what you want.

      Middle children are one of the most independent of birth orders. They are more likely to go their individual ways. They also are not slated into rigid roles like oldest and youngest children are.
