Fighting With My Sister
June 11, 2017 4:34pm CST
We were three girls in our family, and as children we two younger ones were always scrapping. Our older sister was a peace-maker, but she couldn't stop us from going at each other hammer and tongs at the slightest argument. It's a wonder we had any hair left because that was the first thing we went for. Here my sister had an advantage as I used to wear my hair in plaits, and these were easier to grab than just loose hair. One day when we were probably about 11 and 12 years old and our parents were at work, we started an argument which inevitably turned into a fight. We were in the living room, and knocked over a table which fell against the window, breaking it. It was a big window and we were aghast at what we had done. To say that we awaited our parents' return with trepidation would be an understatement! Our punishment was to have no pocket money until a new window had been paid for, which took several months. It didn't stop us fighting however, but we tended to go outside to do it after that. By the way, we are the best of friends now. Did you ever physically fight with your siblings when you were children? Photo is of my sister on the left, aged 12, and me on the right aged 11.

what cuties 'n ya still're :) physically fight with a siblin'? uhm, yes ma'am. the brother'n i used to duke't out quite oft, but always outdoors 'n 'way from pryin' eyes. ne'er did the hair pullin', cat fightin' kinda schtuff. noperz, 'twas always fists a flyin'! those black eyes'n busted noses were 't times diff'cult to pawn off'n jest playin'. the folks'd beat the tar outta 's, yet such didn't cease the brothers hatred fer me. he passed when he 'twas 19 'n we ne'er made amends.

Never had a physical fight with my siblings simply because my parents gave me the task to protect them, my sister is 2 years older than me and my father always told me that men has to look after and protect girls. My brother is 2 years younger so I have to look after him too and see that he does not get bullied. I did not fight with them simply maybe because of the family set-up.

I am the eldest with two brothers younger, we didn't have physical fights but we did disagree verbally. We are also good friends now, as a matter of fact, I am driving up with hubs to visit the younger one this week and spending several days with him and his wife.
I guessed correctly that you are the one on the right. I only have a younger brother, only one year and half younger. We never fought until I reached about the age of 16 and he used to have great pleasure to mess my things. Anyway we never had physical fights because I am petite and thin and he has always been very tall and big.
@jaboUK It would have not be fair at all, he did not hurt me, but when we entered into arguments, he used to lift me up and put me on top of the tall refrigerator in the kitchen. It was a problem coming down, my father did not appreciate when he did this.
My brother and I had many full on fights when we were growing up. Several windows and a glass door were broken along with many household items. There were at least 2 trips to hospital that I can remember. He got stitches in his head due to me shoving him downstairs and I scored a broken arm when he slammed it in a door!

O! I have three girls and I must say, that all my two young ones do is fight, and I'm like oh my goodness when will it end? I mean they can be talking on minute, then the next minute they are literally about to bite eachother head off. Lol.

My baby sister was the biter and hair puller, but I never got that close to her for her to do any of that to me. I am still not close to her . . . Nor any of the others, it seems I was the odd ball in the family, kept my nose in the books
