    Was thinking about the same topic the other day! I'm the middle child :_( it feels awful at times that I think i'm the forgotten one in the family I used to rebel a lot, tried to escape once or twice in the most hilarious ways ever! but I have fun memories I hold on to! at least i'm known as the rebel so there it is, i'm not totally lost or sandwiched :-D

    It is funny how our personality depends on our birth order. I'm glad you didn't feel "sandwiched" in the middle. Thank you for sharing how you felt according to your birth order.

    Am a First Child too. But my case is little different, I always got what I wanted. thanks to my mom.

  4. Reem Abdalla says:

    Hi Shariq, I cant complain about getting what I want. My parents were generous but some matters needed more convincing than others.

    haha, story of my life too! everytime my parents ask me to do something for my sisters, i protest! If I was forced to learn how to do certain things, so should they! That said, the benefits to them are much more as i had to fight for what i wanted.

    I say show your sisters how to carry the same responsibility that you have carried. I guess we learn from our siblings as much as they learn from us. As we the "eldest" are their role models and set the example.

    Interesting article! As the youngest child, I always thought that they are the only ones who have birth order issues. Like being labeled as spoiled for instance. However, I'm so glad I came in last cause I get to learn from all the mistakes that my siblings did and avoid them for sure!
