Is it hard to be a middle child?

A boy has 2 sisters and he's never happy with his stuff and presents. He gets a new one and after a short time he stops playing and complains again. Is this jealousy or what?? Unsure

I was the middle child, my sister being the baby was watched very carefully, while my older brother was watched to ensure he was behaving himself, which I ran rampant and got away with it! I loved being the 'forgotten' middle child.

Im an FMC too Very Happy

I have 2 sisters. I hated it. My big sister was 5 1/2 years older so did her own thing and my little sister was just 14mths younger and wanted to follow me and annoy me Mad

I am a middle child also Thumbs Up I always looked up to my big brother and i adored my baby sister (i used to pretend she was my doll)LOL
It got a bit hard when we hit our teens as my brother didnt want me taging along and i didnt want my sister taging along but we have always been very close.
I think the toy thing probably has more to do with the child just getting bored and playing up on it to get a new one??? Shrug

I am the eldest of 3. My middle bro used to get left out sometimes though. I look back and feel a bit bad , but we didn't get on in our teens - we get on really well now and he's a great uncle to Charlotte and George Smile

This is the right word!! I think he sees himself as the "forgotten" middle child!! And the only boy. May he think he's the different one??
