Can anyone recommend any resources to help with raising a middle child? I have three boys and my middle one (6 years old) is the classic middle child. He needs more attention, is very sensitive, has meltdowns and temper tantrums when things don't go his way. It seems to be a constant battle lately. I don't know if the summer break and change in his routine is to blame or he's going through a phase or what, but I want to get a handle on this and stop butting heads with him. He's also the type of child that gives up as soon as things get difficult. I think that's an attention thing too. He wants to try everything his big brother does (football, lacrosse, wrestling, guitar, cub scouts), but I'm not sure these things are for him. I think he's doing them because he sees the attention his brother gets from these activities. I want him to find his passion - whatever that may be. Any suggestions?? Personal experience, books, anything! I want to build a bonding relationship with him, not a relationship where I constantly have to battle him! TIA!
