Teens & their siblings

Does your teen get along with their siblings? I have a 18 yr old son...a 15 your old daughter and a 13 yr old special needs daughter. My 18 yr old and 15 are constantly arguing and picking at each other. It is so bad that I honestly believe they hate each other. They are old enough to act right but they don't. I have told them to just stay away from each other. Don't talk to each other. Just avoid each other. It works for a bit then they are at it again. =( Then in the mean time my youngest the 13 yr old will be having a meltdown of her own or some how winds up in their squabble. =( I am soooo tired of this. Am I the only one going through this? Will they always hate each other?

My (15 year old) teen is the oldest of four boys. My younger sons are 12, 8 and 5. He "gets along" with my younger sons, he fights with my 12 year old but not as much as when they were younger. As they get older they get along better.

My kids are 4 years apart, and were very close.

I have an only child. Here's a bump.

My sons are 3.5 years apart..... they argued and annoyed the hell out of each other until the oldest was in college.    They actually get along well, now!   They are polar opposites in many ways, but they have finally learned to accept each other for who they are...and embrace their differences.

Don't get me wrong....  even when they were at their worst towards each other.....   God Help anyone who said a negative word about the other.   They have always had each others' backs.   It is hilarious to witness.

Yep for most part and the older they get the more so. They are almost 5 years apart. Ds is 20 and dd is almost 16. Our lil guy is 3 and loved by both. Now that ds is away in college last few years they seem to appreciate each others time even more

My dd will be 20 on Saturday. My sons are 11 and 8. My oldest rarely fights with her brothers, she did sometimes when she was younger but it wasn't often since there is such an age gap. My boys are always fighting, I'm sure it will continue into their teen years. They are best friends one minute and at each others throats the next.

I have three teens close in age. They will fight to the death but when something happens to one, they're right there to support them. It's something like, "My sibling is the only one allowed to fight with them." I have a daughter who is making some extremely wrong decisions with a boyfriend. The two other sibling are unbelievably mad at her. But if that boyfriend ever hits her, they will be all over his butt.
