How would you define sibling abuse?


Is it minimized because most see it as just brothers and sisters fighting? I'm writing a hub about it and would like to know your opinions and experiences.

    I've heard of some horrific ones, Patty. You've given a lot of detail that informs us just how serious and real the problem is involving siblings. The interveners as yourself and Galadriel above, must part-take in self-care. Thank you for answering.

    Appreciate your comments, Paula. Thank you for answering a very tough question. I admit, it was difficult for me to read some of the responses, too. But I asked the question and got the detailed answers.

    Exactly, Kevin, it's a vicious and sometimes subconscious cycle of dysfunctional, learned behavior. Thank you for answering.

    You're so right, dash. We see it as "normal" because we expect siblings to fight. This "normal" sets the foundation upon which the abnormal, involving those extremes, create serious long term damage. Thanks for answering.

    Yes, gmwilliams, you've touched on some important dynamics between siblings that often lay the foundation out of which one abuses the other. Thank you for answering.
