  • time will pass when she'll come around. i was the same way with my siblings, i hated them, wanted nothing to do with them...they did nothing to me to deserve it! but as i grew up I realized I did love them dearly, it was a attention seeking phase, i wanted more attention but couldnt get it with 4 big brothers

  • My two are only 17 months apart and don't always get along. They used to be inseparable but annoying to each other. Now that they are teens it is almost like they can't stand each other. I actually lost a brother to a car accident and I just remind them that you never know when you are going to lose each other. I also remind them how much easier it would be for them if they were friendly to each other. Work each other to their advantage and so forth! Otherwise, all I can say is good luck and hopefully they will grow out of it.

  • Once your kids get older and can share more things in common it will change their relationship. I was the same way with my sister. We never got along as kids but closer to high school and after she went to college we started building a good relationship. Unfortunatly over the years we've grown apart again. But thats due to the fact that we lead such different lives and have nothing in common. I know it can be frustrating when your kids don't get along, but just give them time to.
