The child nobody wants to be in the family is one in the middle. Nobody ever wants to be upstage, forgotten or be the understudy of the older siblings. Studies have shown the middle has always had troubles growing up. Why? Because nobody expects anything from the middle child. They never get the same attention as the youngest and is overshadowed by the achievements of the eldest. The outcome is the middle child may become withdrawn from the family and seek attention else where.
However, that study doesn’t always hold true. Let’s take a look at celebrities who overcame being the middle child.
Spears has an older brother Bryan and younger sister Jamie Lynn.
Manning is the middle child younger brother Eli and older brother Cooper.
