Mine was in the middle. I cant complain too much i mean my mother really mohered me alot, i lived in a house with a rumpus room with a wood heater and a pool table, we had a cellar and a swimming pool.
I had lots of friends and wsn't bullied.
I was not close to my father. He never gave me any praise or encouragment. He often would criticize or just everything i did would be "not good enough" the word usless comes to mind.
This effected me alot. He never really tried to teach me things. Never tought me how to fish or drive or ride a bike or about girls or about fighting or etc. We never went camping or away or anything.
He wasn't all bad though i do have some memories of him reading me a story or playing cricket with me.
It was actually my friends that i did those things with or them that taught me things or encouraged me.
I was pretty heavily diciplined. I dont disagree with discipline though. But i was grounded alot, smacked alot (nothing worse than wodden spoons though) , had my stuff taken away alot, made to go to bed early, cant leave the table until i finish, etc
That was all cool but the mind games my dad played on me fucked me up a bit.
I think the fact that all my friends were so undisciplined and spoilt did not help. Plus i was the first born so i copped it the worst. My friends had older brothers and sisters so they weren't the first kid that always gets the discipline the most.
My parenst ended up serperating and i was happy about it.
But my childhood was ok. I had toys and a commodore 64 and swimming pool, friends, etc
I cant complin too much i just had a big chucnk of my life where i had very little confidence or self belief.

Far from perfect, but I am a white-cisgendered male born into a middle class family in a first world country, so I think it was ok other than having an alcoholic for a dad and a mother with anger issues.

Let me put it this way...I didn't have a silver spoon in my mouth, but I did have a nice plastic spoon with a napkin on the side.

it was a bit more than unhappy, the right word is traumatic i guess. abuse, neglect, alcoholic parents, lost my uncle to suicide and i had to witness a lot of violent domestic disputes, i showed signs of depression at a very early age (gee, wonder why). but on the other hand, school was great when my life was at its worst. i was never bullied despite being a very obvious aspie, i had superb grades, and i had wonderful friends who made me forget about my home life. i only faced bullying when i moved but it never really bothered me all too much, it was nothing physical and i never once had to care what people at my old school thought about me, so i thought "why start now?". so, even though my childhood obviously messed with my head and i envy the happy children i see, i'm grateful i enjoyed at least one part of it.
