Yes with my sister no with my brother. Couldn't really vote
Yes! My brother and I were only 10 months apart and would fight over everything.
None that I was aware of, we were pretty close knit, the 5 kids .
Not really. Maybe if I had sisters, but I was the only girl. I have 5 brothers.
There are certainly more animosity between us than competition. I feel it stems from our parents because they were too immature and/or clueless to know how to handle our normal, natural stages of childhood development.
My brother and I are Irish twins. We rarely got along growing up. Now that we are adults we get along just fine.
I was raised an only child after my parents had raised other kids. They were grown when I came along. So while I didn't have to deal with sibling rivalry, I did have to deal with grown women being jealous and resentful of me because I was able to do more than they did growing up and have more than they had because 1) my parents no longer had a house full of kids to care for, only one and 2) my parents were later in life and had a better financial picture than when they had raised them. In the end, I have absolutely nothing to do with the other "siblings" because they couldn't get over themselves and always treated me badly. I don't need that and my husband and kids don't need to deal with that either. So we don't.
