The middle child always complains. They believe they are not important. They receive the hand me downs, plus feel they do not get the attention the first born receives or the baby. It is true in many families but some parents go out of their way to make sure the middle child receives a great deal of attention and as many new clothes or items as is affordable. In many of the old TV shows, the middle child always had problems or issues. In the “Brady Bunch,” Jan was the middle child for her mother. One day she received a package with a lovely locket. She wore it day and night. Then one morning she woke up and it was gone. She was inconsolable. Finally, Mike’s oldest son, Greg, convinced the family to reconstruct that night. The following evening she remembered that she was looking out the window at the stars to find the bear. Once she looked down, there was the locket. She was elated. The next day, the housekeeper Alice, told her a secret. She said she was the middle child and she decided to give Jan the locket because she understood all to well what it felt like. It was a lovely gesture. In “My Three Sons,” Chip the middle child, seemed in several episodes to feel left out. The point of all this is that many families do ignore the middle child as they are too busy with the oldest and youngest. In the Good Gus series no family had more than two children. It made it less complicated. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
