My 7 year old is having a terrible time with being middle child after being the youngest for 6 year. Need advice! My older daughter is 8 and the youngest is 18 months and the only boy for 36 years on my husbands side. In past we have been very close and now I just feel her becoming more distant. I know that she is a very strong willed child as well as dramatic but its killing me to see her change so drastically. I try to spend "Special" time with her but doesn't every seem to be enough. She and her sister are always in competetive mode over me. Meanwhile, I'm chasing down the baby baby! By the way, did I say that I'm a 18 year post spinal cord injury that is in a wheelchair too. Disapline has became a nightmare!
