Middle Child Day

August 12 is Middle Child Day, a day to recognize middle born children and to acknowledge their place in their families.

Many believe that the order of one’s birth can affect one’s personality. The middle child, or second born of three siblings, is said to suffer from middle child syndrome, a feeling of isolation and exclusion within the family.

Some studies have shown that in a family with multiple children, the oldest and the youngest get the most attention from their parents while those in between tend to be left by themselves, often ignored and forgotten. Middle children often have to fight for the attention of their parents and may sometimes feel like they do not belong to the family.

Independent and Creative

Being a middle child, however, isn't all that bad. Research has shown that being left alone to their own devices can actually be a positive thing for middle children. The fact they may not receive as much attention as their siblings, some studies suggest, can make them independent and creative. The lack of expectations can also help them develop their personality and life skills without any external constraints.

The unofficial holiday with unknown origins is also sometimes called National Middle Child Day and International Middle Child Day.

How to Celebrate

  • If you are a middle child, today is a day to treat yourself - you deserve it.
  • If you know of a middle child make the day special for them – they deserve it.

...Alfred Adler, an Austrian psychiatrist, was the first one to suggest that birth order can have an effect on a person's personality?

In fourth grade, my son had a huge crush on a classmate. So for Valentine's Day, he bought her a box of chocolates and took it into school. When I returned home from work, I found him on the couch eating the same box of candy.

"What happened?" I asked.

"Well, I thought about it for a long time," he said between chews. "And I decided that, for now, I still like candy more than girls."

My sister was busy getting ready to host our entire family for Easter. On her to-do list was a hair appointment for her daughter. "So, Katie," said the stylist as the little girl got up in the chair, "who's coming to your house this weekend with big ears and floppy feet?"

Katie replied, "I think it's my uncle Brian."

What's the difference between love and marriage?

Love is blind. Marriage is an eye-opener.

Me: "I love you."

You: "Is that you or the wine talking?"

Me: "It's me talking to the wine."

A medical student was told to remove the spleen from a cadaver. After he did, he kept poking around. “What are you doing?” asked the professor. The student answered, “I’m looking for the other one.”
