  • It annoys me to see it among my daughters, although I don't mind their petty squabbles because those don't cut too deep. But I never raised them to be mean to other people and each other, so I don't understand why they have to act like b!tches to each other when they became teens and young adults.
    My brothers and I were separated as children after a trauma in the family and nothing links us together. I have tried to be a sister with them throughout the years, but they don't want anything to do with me or each other. I guess it is their way of dealing with the trauma...of keeping its memory at bay.

  • Don't know. I don't speak to my siblings.

  • it was never an issue with my sister (she's 4 years younger). My big kids are so close in age, but very different in personality, that it was never an issue. And my youngest is far enough behind that it's not a big deal.
