ALinda Beck, Indian Valley . Meri Wallace is a kind writer, focused on the essentials, and on results. I love the scripts for good words we can all use with each other, instead of the habitual ones that may most easily (and destructively) come to our lips first. A book that should be on every family's reference shelf.

Here I am, a middle-aged woman with no biological children, yet I find the information Meri Wallace presents so clearly and calmly useful. It's news I can use as I reflect on my own childhood relationships with my two siblings and my parents, or as I consider my neices and nephews and other children in my life.

None of their accomplishments seem original. Their siblings have already learned to talk, read, and ride a bike.

Some of it has to do with the way the parent relates to the child in his position, and some of it actually happens because of the spot position. Each position has unique challenges," she explains. Firstborn Personality Traits. None of their accomplishments seem original.

Birth order has a powerful effect on children's emotional development, on their self-esteem, and on their sense of well-being. The youngest child, the firstborn, the middleborn, twins, and the only child all have specific birth order issues that, if not atted to early on, can impair their functioning and their interpersonal relations at home and at school, and can follow them into adulthood. Parental birth order, too, plays an important role, as do such other factors as gender and family size. To understand these birth order blues, the author, an expert in parent-child relationships, first raises parents' awareness of the impact of birth order upon children. She then shows how to identify their children's birth order problems, often disguised by behaviors such as underachievement or aggression, and suggests how they can resolve these issues and prevent negative behavioral patterns from developing.

This was the only book I could find that attempted to provide a comprehensive set of thoughts and advice on how to deal with children of all different birth orders. The author does a commendable job of identifying the issues and making some suggestions. That being said, in part due to the complexity of the subject, don’t read this with the expectation of some hard and clear recommendations or remedies. Many of the thoughts and analysis will contradict themselves by saying it might be one thing, or then again it might be another. Thus the advice or recommendations will also follow the same pattern

Overall, it was helpful to read through and hear the main points of advice, which I found to be (1) spend more time with children individually (2) make sure they feel loved and (3) help acknowledge in your own words to your children what they are feeling to help both you and them cope with frustrations / jealousies

I am a single child and never had to deal with siblings. I bought this book when my wife was pregnant with our first child. It was very interesting and eye-opening for me. Three girls later (about 5 years apart each), I find myself still going back to read this book. The author includes discussions about the oldest child, the middle child, the youngest child, as well as single children, twins, age gap and gender differences. She gives short case studies, effects on children's development and strategies for parents. I've recommended this book to my in-laws and friends. An excellent book - worth every penny! Go get it now!
