The Order of Birth in the Family: An Expanded Edition
Karl König, MD
Brothers and Sisters is one of the first books that I read when learning about Waldorf Education and Anthroposophy. I can still remember how strikingly valid I found the ideas to be. Later, I discovered how very helpful Dr. König’s insights into the importance of birth order and family constellation were to both my parenting and my self awareness. This is a study of the meaning of birth order that is unlike any other I’ve read, as it takes into account the spiritual destiny and the soul needs of the various children. I recommend placing Brothers and Sisters high on your list of books to read – you won’t regret it!
