How To Have A Good Sibling Relationship

I’ve always been told that my brother and I have a pretty good relationship as siblings and that our friends our jealous that we get along so well. I believe all siblings can have a good relationship, because it’s actually not that hard when you put these tips to practice.

Communicate

This is for any relationship to be fair, siblings aren’t excluded from the need to communicate. If there is an issue, talk to them about it. Or if you aren’t near each other very often, especially as adults, get on the phone and catch up.Communication goes a long way.

Be Each Others #1 Fan

I easily know that my brother is my number 1 fan, and I am his. We support each other and our endeavors, and we have never been competitive. We do different things and have different goals, so there has never been a need to compete, only to support.

Have Sibling Bonding

Yes, those goofballs are my brother and I. And yes, we have sibling bonding, mainly because we don’t live near each other anymore, so when we are together it is special time for us. Whether it’s playing games or filming videos, or just being in the same room on Facebook together, we take advantage of sibling bonding.

You Won’t Always Like Them, But You Will Always Love Them

I am not saying everyday will be rainbows and butterflies with your sibling; there will always be times when they drive you crazy (it’s kind of their job), but you should always love them, even when they are being super annoying and won’t leave you alone. And there are times where you drive them crazy too, and they still love you.

    I have two sisters and a brother. I’m really close with my older sister yet not so much my younger one. My brother and I are kind of the oddball out of the group since we were kind of the black sheep of the family… so reading this made me smile and think of them.

    I can reflect that yes, these key points are very helpful in have a better adult relationship with each and every one of your siblings – no matter how alike or different they are.

    This also got me to message them (which I haven’t done in a while), so thanks!

  2. I have two sisters are we all are very close. In fact, they are going to be co-maid of honors in my wedding next year because I couldn’t possibly pick between the both of them. I would say the key is making an effort to stay in there lives; listening and working to UNDERSTAND, not give advice or tell them what need to be done. And unconditional love and support!

    It sounds like you have such a great relationship with your brother. I also have a brother, and he’s three years younger. We were close when we were little, then when we got older in school, we weren’t as close. You’re right, though. I am his number 1 supporter. I have three boys of my own and I hope they will be the same way.

  5. I found that as soon as my siblings and myself no longer lived together we got on great. We still have issues with each other sometimes but we either talk it out or we just spend time apart until any issues we had no longer bother us because life is too short to hold a grudge specially when it’s with your family.

    My Siblings and I grew apart for a while when they moved away from home. It has been kind of fun lately to call and just chit chat and see what they are up to.
