Do you think same sex siblings get along better or worse than opposite sex siblings?

I have a 5 year old that will be 6 in Dec. and baby girl #2 is due in Sept. I am thinking it is a good thing it is another girl because since there is a little age difference, maybe they will have something in common. I figure if it had been a boy they wouldn't had been as close. Opinions?

  • Just going by my relationship with my sister and brother, I get along WAY better with my brother than with my sister. But I get along better with males than females in general, too.

  • I have 2 boys who have been at each others throats and driving me CRAZY!!!
    My sister and I fought a lot too until I went to college so it seems to me same sex siblings do not get along very well. But that is really all I am familiar with..Good Luck!!

  • I think its more about personality then gender. My 4 yr old daughter and 5 yr old son are best of friends right now. My 3 yr old ds and my 7yr old ds get along really well. I really think their personalities draw them closer then their gender.
