Middle Child Syndrome

Someone asks me before

"do you experience middle child syndrome?" and i answer


Anyway I have 2 siblings 1 sister and 1 younger brother when i was young i never felt being left alone with them although most of the time my mother gave everything on youngest one since he's the only boy in family, on the other hand my sister can demand what she wants anytime.

I never had this 'JEALOUS' thing in my family.
maybe because i'm secured.

But as i grow up i begin to sort up things about being "middle" in the family

When my brother asks for something like new gadget, my mom gives it away
same with my sister (she's sick no more detail about this)

I'm not into techie thing, my brother change his phone yearly or every 6 months, same with my sister while me i only change my phone if it has a problem that can't be fix anymore.

when i was in college i ask my mom that if ever they will give me a gift (for my Graduation) then it will be better if a LAPTOP (i want my own laptop)

Then after my Graduation i remind my mom again, every time i do this she always said that
"we don't have money for that"

but i insist my demand to her , she promise that she give me enough money to buy my lappie.


anyway i have my laptop right now..

i think it really exist but i think it depends on you how to handle being in the middle as what i say when i was a child i never felt jealous even though i saw them that they had much toys or have new clothes than me.

and i think it's better to be in the middle :)


  1. ako rin po ay middle child. pero hnd naman me maxado affected.. uhmm para sa akin nga kapag pang gitna sobrang mababait kasi marunong mkisama. ^_^

  2. Good for you! And i think that's absolutely right, it's all about a great attitude which I'm pretty sure you have :)

  3. Being a triplet, I can't say that I have any experience with this. But I certainly do have friends who know all about it.

  4. I'm not a middle children, so I don't know that syndrome. haha..
    but, I never had a jealousy thing either to my only brother..:)
    family will always be with us..

    Btw, you won the perpetrator giveaway. Yaayyy!!!
