Families tell stories about parents being harder on the oldest and easier on the youngest, but that middle child always seems to get somewhat left out. There's even the phrase "middle child syndrome". These middle children are said to misbehave to get attention, go with the flow, work as little as possible, play the peacemaker and be very creative. With that in mind, there should be no surprise that the some of the middle children have captivated people and become very successful.
