Common Characteristics of a Middle Child (and what to do if they're struggling in school)

Common Characteristics of a Middle Child (and what to do if they're struggling in school)

Today is Middle Child Day and we thought we'd share some of the common characteristics of middle children and how it might influence their personalities and relationships.

According to Healthline, middle children:

... have personalities that are often overhshadowed by older or younger siblings

... are likely to be quiet and even-tempered because their personality has been "dulled down" by their siblings

... may struggle to feel equal to their siblings in parental relationships

... may become the "peacemaker" in the family

... may not feel as special as the oldest child or youngest child

Of course, these are generalizations and every child will be different based on their circumstances. But if you're noticing that your middle child is avoiding or struggling in school, a Brain Skills Assessment may help determine if some of your child's cognitive skills aren't as strong as they could be. The assessment is affordable and only takes about an hour. The results will give you insight into which skills could benefit from a personal brain training program, which is designed to target and train cognitive skills.

Cognitive skills are the core skills your brain uses to think, read, learn, remember, reason, and pay attention. Working together, they take incoming information and move it into the bank of knowledge you use every day at school, at work, and in life. Brain training trains the cognitive skills the brain uses to think and learn. LearningRx is a one-on-one brain training center that uses over 35 years of research to target the underlining skills that are important to how you learn and perform.
