About Sibling Rivalry

Most siblings adore each other and can be best of friends, but other children always seem to fight. Fighting is normal for siblings, according to psychologists, and is also common in every household. One minute, they love each other and the next thing you know, they’re fighting with all their might. Do not worry about this; it is alarming but very normal.

Sibling rivalry can start even if there is no other child born yet after the eldest. And as they grow older, siblings tend to fight for attention from their parents. Jealousy will start between, and they will be comparing themselves from one another – what they don’t have that the other sibling has and vice versa.
