Yeah it gets a little hard sometimes only because when I want to spend time with them and their kids I can't unless I hop on a plane... and go 1500 miles...

Yes I have 3 siblings 2 sisters and a brother. Though there is a extreme age difference. I am 24 years old out on my own with a son of my own. the second oldest sister, is 16 and in high school. We talk online some, and when they visit she talks to me and all, but its not quite the same as before i had my son because now i am a "mom". The next child is my brother who is 13! We are a little closer then my relationship with the 16 year old one, I guess its because, him and I liked the same things. Even though I am a girl I was raised like a boy into cars sports, gi joes etc. the youngest is 11 and she and i are close only because when i was a teenager at home i would protect her from the other two doing mean things to her...lol Isn't that what a older sister is for? Anyway yeah I guess I wouldn't change anything about it. We are a close nit family and if one of them need anything I am there and vice versa. So I guess things are good between us. and I think that is the way things should be... did I help at all?

Yes, I have a lot of siblings. I have 4 sisters and 1 brother. I am the oldest and through out our ages we all came in pairs. I am 26 the next is 24, 18 and 15, 10 and 8. I try to be a friend to all of my siblings. Growing up I had a shaky relationship with my sister closest to me in age. She was always in my shadow and rebeled most of her life to be different than me. It pushed us away from each other for years, but I was always there for her, no matter what she thought of me. We had a rough childhood and I became like a mom in a lot of ways to my siblings. I did become the dominant one in situations, but I didn't know what else to do. Someone had to step up. I live far away from my younger siblings and I do everything I can to be invested in their lives. We talk on the phone often and we try to spend holidays together. I think family is one of the most important entities in your life and you should be in good standing with them, in love and in relationship.

well since i have a twin sister we are on equal levels. no bossing around. but with my younger sister i sometimes order her to do some chores, but as she hardly listens to me, it doesnt matter even if i scream at her. besides my sister , i have a younger brother, who also has his own will. we all cooperate with each other. no real problems. and siblings should be like friends, cause they are together almost the whole time.

Aside from my parents, my siblings are the next most important people in my life. They give me emotional support and needless to say, financial support. I have to admit though, that I have a favorite sibling - my younger brother. He is talented, thoughtful and sweet. Even though he has his own family now, he still checks on me as if I am younger than him.

i am a middle child. i am the dominate one in my family. my sister who is a amazing women is to soft and pink and my brother is a smart man who still needs a mommie. so that leaves me to come in and take care of the both of them. and i do it with love, respect, and honor that one sister has for her brotha and sista
