I just had two daughters one just turned 3 and the other is not one
yet. I let my older daughter help out with the baby and she even rocks
here "bear she named after her little sister" so sleep next to me while
I rock her sister. I have lots of one-on one time with the older child
and even take her to mom and me gymnastics every week together and to appointments
with me alone. I try to have talks with her about her sister, most of the
time she is great but at times she will squeze her sister to tightly and
I remind her that her sister is little. I feel guilty for spending time
with her little sister if she is around or I will try to do more with her
when her big sister is busy. I have them sleep at different times because
that way I can have one on one time with the other and they don't get jealous.
Overall I really keep up with it but I was wondering when they get older
will I not have to be so careful. I hope that when they start playing together
more that I will be able to so more activities together and they will be
able to understand better that I still love them both and it is ok to spend
time with the other. By the way my husband got a vasectomy.

I am a Junior at a highschool in Ohio and we are doing reports on certain
topics that have to do with family life. Ive spent 4 days trying to find
something related to my topic "Sibling Rivalry" and yours has been the
most helpful. I can also say that I can relate to a lot of the things you
wrote about in the article. My younger brother is going to be 11 soon and
I am 17. I also have 3 older sisters and the oldest is almost 30. Its difficult
becuase he's the only boy so of course he's spoiled. My mom is not the
best of mothers either. We had some hard times when i was younger and she
feels as though she failed with me so she's given up on me and devotes
all her time and attention to him. But I wanted to say thank you for letting
all those other parents out there know that there is such thing as sibling
rivalry and that it does get bad sometimes. Thank you for the help on my
project as well.

I Found your article interesting in respect of the fact that i have
real differences with my Brother who is 8 Years Older, we have nothing
in Common, he moved to Canada when i was 18, i lived in London England,
then moved to Ireland, where i still live. Both of my Parents come from
The Catholic Rural Ireland of the 1914's, There are only two Siblings in
our Family, Both my Brother & Myself were born in London England in
1940's & 1950's my Brother would not bring his family to either country
while my Parents where alive and up to this day Hasn't i am now 52, he
was/is extremely distant towards me my cousins told me he bullied, / Scared

I found this article informative and helpful. I am the mother of 2 boys
that are 21 months apart. They are 7 and 9 years old now. There have always
been little squabbles, but it seems that recently for some reason the older
one thinks he needs to rule over the younger one. The 9 year old will often
repeat me, if I say "brush your teeth please" then the older boy yells
at the younger one "Brush your teeth!" I remind him that I am the parent,
but he has continues to do it, strangely though he does apologize to me.
The younger boy does antagonize a bit too. And sometimes after giving them
hints to solve it on their own I finally have to step in. The older boy's
aggression and frustration is way out of propoprtion to problem. I spend
allot of time talking to him about how we treat others, how would he like
to be treated and so on. Dad thinks this all could be cured with a few
good spankings. I am against spanking for this problem though.

I really appreciate your article on sibling rivalry. I have four younger
siblings and there are times when the bickering gets to the point where
I can only say "Just drop it. Let's talk about something else." It's not
malicious or anything, but it just goes on and on, sometimes. My mother
says she doesn't understand why we always argue. According to her, she
and her four siblings never had the problems we do. At the same time, my
father and his siblings are "split" over their parents' divorce, since
some side with the mother and some with the father. It's good to know that
my siblings and I are not the only ones with the arguing.

Thank you, Dr. Boyle, for this clear,indepth essay on sibling rivalry.
As a child, I watched my father's siblings, whom I knew loved each other,
shout and yell at each other over past grievences. Now, my two youngest
daughters are doing the same, and I wonder why they can't see each other
as the fine women they each are. They're wasting good time being resentful.
I accept my responsibility in treating the youngest more favorably and
I have apologized. I frequently express my admiration to the older one
for her amazing accomplishments. But they're still fueding, to the great
dismay of those of us who love them both. Again, they're wasting good time.

The story of Melinda and Josie has a lot of similarities to my situation. My older sister is like Melinda, constantly having to have her own way. Her bad temper, hatred towards me and constant verbal abuse have caused me much emotional pain and damage.
I am very disapppointed that everyone is accepting the appalling behaviour of the aggressor, explaining it as her expressing her need for love. The sibling who is the victim of her anger did not deserve it, but is left alone to fend for herself, receive no help for healing. What's more, the recommended course is to extend more love to the abuser. This is unjustice and hurtful to the victim.

Your website has been rather helpful. I wasn't aware of the rivalry
between my sister and I until it was unbearable. She is 44 and I am 42.
I don't even know where to start in figuring it out and lately have concluded
that there is no figuring it out. I believe there is something wrong with
her mentally at the foundation of all this. I moved to NY and after getting
into some legal trouble in her state, she followed me and began a 15-year
co-dependent, rivalrous and downright strange relationship. I had to opportunity
to move to Los Angeles. I was there three years -- time enough away to
figure out something wasn't quite right. She again followed me with reasons
I still don't understand and the button pushing began, culminating in a
fistfight over her not returning my apt. keys after I'd asked her not to
hang out in my apt. when I wasn't there. I've since moved again. We have
a third younger sister who she talks down about me to and everyone she
meets. I recently came across a memory book from my senior year in high
school and discovered, mixed within the heartfelt and sincere wishes of
my classmates, she'd written comments glorifying herself and discounting
my high school relationships and experiences. I sought therapy after the
fight as I was suffering from PTSD from and incident that had occurred
in L.A. shortly before she showed up. My psychiatrist helped me to reframe
the whole relationship and to learn to set boundaries. I just don't understand
why, if she hates me so much, why does she continue to try to inject herself
into my life and take away or diminish that which is important to me and
consistently paint me in a negative light? I have made great strides in
my life and will continue to. I just don't understand this. Can you give
me some insight?

She claims now that she wouldn't have done this with hindsight but also
that I need not worry about her care (83 years old). Also if I get upset

Thank you for your comprehensive website on sibling rivalry. My daughter found it on Google.com and recommended it to me. In turn, I have recommended it to two of our other children. Your ideas and your links are the best I have found on this subject. We keep thinking that sibling rivalry issues are long gone, since our four children (we had 4 of them in 4.5 years) are now all in their forties. We appreciate your help. I liked your reference to Cain and Abel in Genesis, which we also had noted. There is also a related experience in the beginning of the Book of Mormon between three brothers, Nephi, Laman, and Lemuel, which is another sibling rivalry issue gone wrong; another noted sibling rivalry issue that was never resolved was between Abraham's two sons, Isaac and Ishmael, which eventually became the Jews and the Arabs, and they are still fighting.

Dear Dr. Boyle,
Thus you have a family model: Prime and Auxiliary parents, and children who are alternately of a Favored and Disfavored disposition.
Finally, it is no accident that the story of Cain and Abel is the first one in the Bible. It is the paradigm of life. What parents need to know is that it is going to happen. The problem is how to handle it realistically.
You may look for my website, which will soon be launched. In the meantime, reference to my work can be found on WebMD.com.

Re: Sibling fights
Thank you for your message. How old are your children?
Have you checked the "20 Tips to Stop Sibling Rivalry"?
I would also recommend that you read at least the chapters on "Communicating with children" and "How to say no" (Chapters 4 and 5) from the following book:
Dana Chidekel, 2002.
(You can probably borrow this book at your local library or purchase it locally or through the net).
Of course, the best advice in the world will not do you much good if you don't apply it (or if you and the other caregivers to your children are giving them conflicting signals).
Also - Read my essay again - slowly - (you can print it out and read it at your leisure) - think of what you can apply in your situation.
Go to my "Additional Reading page"
Print it out, and take it with you to your library or bookstore - browse through these books, and see which ones seem to make the most sense to you (we are all different and we process information more or less differently, so some books may seem to "speak" more clearly to you).
And, of course, each situation is different. You could also try family therapy and/or parent support group meetings.
I hope this helps.
With my best wishes,

Re: Birth of twin siblings
Hello again Alexe:
Thank you for letting me know about your new twin siblings - They must be just adorable -
And, you are very lucky - you are going to participate in helping these two new human beings create themselves - which is perhaps the most wonderful experience a person can have!
My congratulations to you and all your family!

Hi, its Alexe again (see entry 63), just wanted to inform you that there
are two new babies in the house! My mom gave birth to (another!!) set of
healthy twins on June 2, 2002. Leo James weighed in at 5 lbs, 8 ozs and
Emylie Jillian weighed in at 4 lbs, 11 ozs. Leo and Emy are doing very
well, and so far the only hint of sibling rivalry has been from my brother
riley who is only 10 and doesnt like not being the baby of the family any
more. Hopefully what i learned from your site will help, especially since
Leo and Emy have 6 older siblings to contend with! lots of love, Alexe

rivalry is or where it came from. Thanks for providing me with the information

Have you tried (I mean *really* tried) the Parent Effectiveness Traning? - See:

If you and your partner study and apply these techniques for some three months I'm almost certain you will get some positive permanent results.
However, each child is different. If this doesn't work, you could try family therapy and/or parent support group meetings.
I hope this helps.

Re: Prevention of sibling rivalry
My point is that these rivalries ARE preventable - see the sections in my essay on "What Parents Can Do" and on "What The Community Can Do."
The discovery of how to prevent these rivalries was a major breakthrough in human social evolution - namely, the how-to is to *avoid the abuse of power* in its various manifestations. However, during the last ten thousand years many human groups seem to have had great difficulties accepting this concept - which has brought us all sorts of human enmities and rivalries, up to and including the greatest horror of all: Large-scale war.
