Siblings

Ask a Question

do you have a sibling? if so are you two peas in a pod or chalk and cheese? Those with children have you noticed more differences or more similarities?

My sibling is eight years younger than me and he still manages to wind me up, forty odd years since he was born. That said, I'd fight for him and his kid if ever anyone harmed them, I'd be first with a gun lol

I'm the eldest of 3. I'm close to my bro & sis. We lost our parents a couple years ago & grew even closer after that.

We are similar in terms of values, morals and ethics, but our habitual behaviours are polar opposites. It drives me mad as Iโ€™m the older one! So in turn Iโ€™m the one who nags

OneeyedRaven lol I will admit I try to nag less as I know my brother just zoned out after years of practice...itโ€™s hard to break the habit though as you grow up together so you do get set in your ways

I'm the youngest of 3. None of us are alike at all, except for the fact that we don't speak to each other. We were never close growing up and we fought like cat and dog, we never got on. The happiest part of my childhood was after my brother had moved out! I don't wish my brothers any harm but I also have no interest in them or their lives.

Im the youngest of 3 - they were 14 (girl) 15(boy) when i was born. They both moved out when i was young so i was basically like an only child for a good few years. Then my mother had custody of my brothers children so the 3 of them were raised like my sisters. I argued with my actual sister 10 years ago and we have barely spoke since. My brother came back on the scene a few years ago after not speaking to the family and choosing a life of drugs (heโ€™s off them now) ๐Ÿ™ˆ but were not close. The 3 that my mother raised are all in their 20s now and living their own lives. 1 of them i see weekly when she comes to visit. None of us are alike. They are all quite selfish and just worry about themselves. I am the only one that visits my parents on a regular basis and helps them out. Im the first one they call with any problems (my dad has motor neurone so they have it quite tough) and none of them seen to care about them after everything they have been given growing up.

families are difficult I can appreciate that completely. Im sure you are a huge support to your mum and dad which at the end of the day is all that counts. Its funny I work with lots of people in their 20s and although I preface this as a generalisation I often dont know if to laugh or cry listening to their worries. I go home worrying that I wont find any yellow stickered foods to feed myself glad I only have me relying on me whilst they are complaining their parents are not buying them a newer car because they have paid the deposit on a new home for them......

I also know lots of amazing people in their 20s but does seems to be an age thing. I wonder if the generation above me feel the same listening to me complain? ๐Ÿ˜Š

My sister and I sound similar and have similar views on things but we look different. Also bickered growing up, I was horrible to her. I'm older by 3 years. We are better now as adults but cos we lived together for so long as adults we would fall out over stupid things

Iโ€™m not at all like my siblings and my two children are complete opposites. They donโ€™t look alike, have different expectations and goals but I love them to bits.
