We don't understand sibling rivalry- The competition that goes on between you as to who is doing better than the other and who your parents favour more- we just don't get it- but we try.We probably only want one child- That is what we know so we see it as the norm- however we know that you may see things differently.
Even as simple as "Choose between these outfits" in elementary school; they wanted me to be able to choose things for myself.
We like our space- If we venture off upstairs or ask for a night alone- we are not mad at you- we just need some 'me time'.
We like our own space We are not overly tactile people- We are not the type to drape ourselves over you for too long- nor do we like to be pinned down on the couch in a sideways hug. all has its cut off point so don't expect to spoon all night long in bed.
Is it really true that middle children cause more problems?
That firstborns are more responsible but also a bit uptight?
