  • Maybe because she isn't getting the attention she first did. She was basically, an 'only' child, until her sister was born. Now, she has to compete for your love... (At least that's how I felt when my warty sister was born and took away my babyhood!)

  • It's jealousy because her sister is now getting attention too...shes used to having all the attention to herself! It is very common!
