Middle Children are Smarter!

Parent Interventions

We often hear that the eldest and youngest kids in a family are spoilt. The middle child is always said to be the less privileged one, hence the term 'middle child syndrome'. But recent studies prove that the middle children are smarter than the others.

Good Diplomats:

Growing between and elder and a younger, they learn the skill of diplomacy soon! They will have more patience than the other two.

Good Team Players:


The first ones had all the attention as their own till the second one came. So, the second one is born in to "sharing". The youngest will have all the privileges. So, the middle kids obviously know how to survive in all odd conditions.

Less Egoistic:

As they have not received any special attention from family, the middle children are lesser egoists than the others.

Good Leadership Qualities:


The middle children exhibits better leadership qualities. They learn things from their elder ones. They are aware that the younger ones look at them as models.

Good Friends:

Since they get less attention at home, they seek that outlet outside of the home. That is the reason they find comfort in building strong friendships that become their extended family.
