I was on another site discussing bullying and was thinking about my oldest who has behavior problems and how she acts towards her siblings.
When she gets angry about having to follow rules she takes it out on them. Along with that she is the oldest and thinks that means she can boss everyone around. All normal childhood stuff (I used to boss my brother around). But I've noticed she's become something of a bully towards them, demanding that they follow only her rules, that they share with her (but not the other way around), physically and emotionally assaulting them.
I have told her in the past that one day one of the kids is going to get fed up with her and just flatten her and I wasn't going to stop it. I think recently she realized her younger brother is much bigger than her and could really hurt her if he decided to really fight back and has laid off him. She now focuses her aggression on her 4yo sister.
