I'm often asked, because I have three daughters, about the middle child syndrome. When they ask that question, I'm often a little confused because I've never really considered my daughters in competition with each other. I always considered them as a team. Although, my middle daughter, Solei, was much different than my other two daughters. I was fortunate enough to have an older daughter, that is four years older. I had a chance to have a conversation with her because Solei was a very clingy, kind of, shy girl. My oldest daughter was outgoing. I had a conversation with her one day. I said, "We have to be a team here. She looks up to you. If she's having problems, I need you to help." She was very good about that. When people ask me about the competition between them, I don't think that should be in existence in a family, team environment.
