    It depends on your sibling's attitude. Is he/she the sensitive type, or vice versa?

    I would suggest talking to him/her about it. Ask him/her what is he/she jealous for, and tell him/her her good qualities that he/she is failing to notice. If you're good in math and she's jealous about it, maybe she's better than you when it comes to english subject? If so, tell her that.

    I hope it helps even a bit.

    to me its insane to be jealous of your brother or sister, but the roots of jealously is someone wanting what you have or you thinking someone want what you have and then call them jealous. but to solve it is to talk it over and if there time to spare help it get what eve it is they want, not get it for them but, school them on how you did and how they can do it.

    Let them be jealous and do whatever you want.

    The truth is we have no control over how others think or feel.

    However with a sibling or friend for that matter I think one good way to help them keep things in perspective is by continuing to show them YOU are pulling for them in whatever endeavor they are pursuing. It's difficult for anyone to be jealous of someone is one of their biggest fans!

    for years my brother was jealous of me. He thought that because I was the only girl that I got special priviledges, I was smart in school and got better grades than he did. So he was always mad at me.  When he hit eighteen years, he left home and joined the navy.  There was nothing I could do to help my brother when we were younger, he had his feelings and beliefs, I had no right to discount either. I did well in my studies because to lower my grades would lower my chances in life. To make my parents angry or upset with me as they seemed to him would make my life miserable.
    We didn't see each other for years. Now time has healed the wound, we get along just fine. We each did our own thing in life, went our separate ways, grew to become.

    Just do the best you can to show your love for the jealous sibling. It is hard to change the mind of someone who is jealous, like someone who sees nothing but jealousy for the sibling. You can also try to find out why, maybe get to know your sibling better and hopefully find a way to patch up and bond, but it can be a tough road to be.

    It's not your problem to solve, it's their problem.

    I think it would help to let them know you aren't trying to compete with them and assure them of their worth and talents and try to do little things for them.

    But you don't owe them anything and they will just have to grow up on their own.  If they are really mean and nasty I would simply cut them completely out of my life.  It's not my problem if they are idiots and I simply don't associate with idiots.  I don't have the time nor patience.

    Remove yourself from that kind negative environment.  You'll be surprised how and what your environment will do to and for you, especially if you're around people who envy you or is jealous.  It can be very draining as well as have a negative effect on you and your mind, being that even though you know how they feel you are going against the grain by entertaining it as well as them.  Which doesn't work in your favor because they will not change and the energy will just bring about confusion, misery and leaving you stagnant. Your best bet is to take yourself elsewhere.  If you live with this person, start making plans to move.  Yep it's that serious.....you'll be surprised how someone or a situation as such will effect you in long run!!!

    Jealousy is a negative emotion, right, so distance yourself from this person. Remove any negative energy from your space immediately. It doesn't matter if this is your blood or an acquaintance. A jealous person does not want the best for you.. they want whatever it is that you have, and sometimes, they will try and take it from you.
    Depending on the type of relationship you have, its always good to communicate your observations, thoughts if you do decide to distance. However, its not always necessary.

    Stay as far away from them as possible.  It will never change and they will sabotage you until the day you die.  I am 58 years old and I have only seen it get worse over time.

    Tell him or her that it hurts you when hi or she acts like that. Buy a big nice chocolate, call your brother or sister in your room (even if you are 100yrs old, buy a chocolate! smile ), be open with them and talk what is it that bothers them. When the problem between you gets a name and form, it will be easy to solve it! Happy holidays!
