My sisters are my best friends. My little brother is still my protector. After our mom passed away a year and a half ago, we have become even closer...
When my sisters and I were younger, we were just like other typical siblings who quarrel most of the time. Now that we are grown-ups, our parents are so delighted that we became quite close. Whenever one of the sisters need help, we are always there for her. We also take time to bond. Laughter and happy banter are what prevail whenever we are in each others' company.
I wish I could answer this--I always longed for siblings, but alas--I'm an only child.
Oh yes we are close. I am very close with my 2 brothers who are 2 and 3 years younger than me. We are grown up now but have been close since childhood. One of my brothers has a small farm with chickens, rabbits, pigeons, a donkey and a very nice mare. In the late afternoons and evenings we three meet there just to be together, talk of this and that and sometimes we give him a hand in some small job that needs doing, like storing bales of hay or fixing a leaking roof, lol.
When I am on my own I indulge in my various hobbies, sometimes clay sculpture, drawing or stone carving. My hobbies are here....

I had two younger brothers. My youngest brother, James, passed away in 1999. There are now only my brother Steven and I left of our entire family. We've always been extrremely close but have drawn even closer as the last of the family. The love and devotion of one's siblings is to be treasured -- it is a dear family relationship like no other.
I have 2 older brothers and I love them very much. yes, we are close.

I was born and raised in one area and then after getting married have lived most of my life far away from my siblings. It has been hard to keep the relationship going, although it really was never that close to begin with - how about yours?

My theory is that most people seem to like whatever place they've ended up with among their siblings. Most also do seem to have a few minor gripes about it. Without considering anything you've ever read in books about birth order, what's your own personal take on your own place in the...

Why do parents of large to very large families tend to delegate the raising of the youngerchildren to the oldest sibling? Many parents from large to very large families (6 or more children) state that they have little or no part in raising their children, they purport that they...

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.
