Revealing insight into the effects of one's position in family order on both self and relationships

On the basis of more than 25 years' clinical experience and psychological research, Linda Blair reveals how one's birth order position, the spacing between siblings, and the sex of siblings impact one's childhood, adult life, and relationships. Packed with new research and written in a lively, personal style, this unique book will not only help readers understand themselves and their family, but will shed light on the dynamics of their other relationships, explain why they may repeat patterns within relationships, and suggest helpful strategies for dealing with other people. Chapters cover birth order and what being the eldest, middle, or youngest child reveals about the reader; the effect of large or small age gaps between siblings; family size; the sex of siblings; parental attitudes to each child; the effects of being an only child or being a twin; the impact of stepsiblings; and much more.
