I'm an expectant mom. I have a 3 year old daughter and a 6 year old son. My daughter is such a joy and really relishes being the "baby" of the family. She'll soon be displaced though as the youngest and am wondering how she'll take it. She is aware that a new little brother or sister is coming but doesn't quite grasp what that means for her. I've heard of the middle child syndrome and have seen my own siblings struggle with being somewhere in the middle. Is this a legitimate concern? Should I proactively start taking her to a therapist?
