Sibling bond

The relational bonds between brothers and sisters are woven and unwoven according to the events of life.

  • We speak of brotherhood for bonds between brothers and sisterhood for sisters.
  • Parents set the tone for sibling relationships: they can create the groundwork for understanding and support but are also capable of fostering competition and conflict.
  • Unlike friends, siblings have intimate knowledge of their origins.
  • The sibling bond is built and evolves over time.
