Big sis resents attention paid to little brother

Dear Carolyn:

Re: Sibling:

Right. Middles often enjoy an opportunity to be out of the glare of their parents’ attention, allowing more room to try different things. They get parents that aren’t as green as the ones the olders had, but not as burned out as the youngers.
This is generalizing, but in service of an even more useful generalization: It’s not what you get, it’s how you use it that counts.
