The older sibling bosses the younger siblings around. She is also the first to experience milestone moments and rites of passage. The younger sibling is the baby, she always gets most of the attention. So, where does that leave the sibling whose birth date falls in-between?
How does a special day of your very own sound? A day that is all about celebrating YOU! Middle Child’s Day, celebrated annually on August 12, does just that!
This is your day to reign in the spotlight. If you are one of an extended family of three or more children, you should get together with your fellow ‘middles’ and celebrate your shared bond. Take a group selfie, post it online to remind ‘middles’ of all ages that today is all about them.
Parents of middle children, give them one-on-one quality time. An outing of their choice would be most appreciated. Get to know the individuals they are becoming and remind them just how special they are – no matter where their birthdays sit on the family’s totem pole.
A perfect ending to Middle Child’s Day would be the recitation of “The Three Bears”. Goldilocks was right in her words of wisdom. When presented with choices, the middle is always just right.
