in a relation who is best? sister or a brother? if so elder or younger? Do you think having elder brother or sister would smoother with their love and care. Or have an adorable younger sister or brother who would have accepted you as their role model, friend and protector?

thanks for this topic but first of all never underestimate anybody in that wonderful family be it a sister, brother, younger or older. love them all because blessings come from above. the bible says not by might nor power but by the spirit. the spirit make the difference not man.

According to me sister is more better than brother.I think elder sister is better than younger.I think elder sister would be smoother with love and care.She will take care of all my needs.I will like to accept her as a role model,friend and protector.She will be my best friend. Often she will present me with various kinds of gifts.

thanks for your response. i wished of having an elder sis too who would care and guide all time and correct me as a mom figure although having an elder brother hasnt been upto the mark for me as i thought.

I have a very good relationship with my two sister. We are very close. One is younger than me and the other is much older. I have three brothers. The only one I don't have a good relationship with is the older one and I think that is because of his wife.

thats great of being older and younger too to your siblings. true, sometimes good relationships dont remain as they should be. i guess the way it happens is because you try to make them happen in a certain way and may or may not be succesful.

I have two brothers and one sister..I am very close to one of my brothers..He is older than i am and he looks just like my Dad,whom we lost when I was very young so I would say hes like a father figure to me..The other brother is much younger and I feel like he is my child and not my brother,my sister is also a lot older than all of us and very supportive, so I could not choose between them..If I just had too,I would say my older brother is the one that i can really relate to and share my intermost feelings...I am just crazy about my brother so i suppose it would be him.

thats really nice being in the middle. though your younger bro is much younger the feeling of big brother still fine.

i have two brothers and 2 step sisters. they are all yonger than me and to tell you the truth, i love them all the same. i love them so much! i could never say that i choose one over the other. we all grew up very close, and like great friends. even til this day...me and my other brother are married and have already started a family, the other 3 siblings are still too young for family, but old enough to drive and get around. we still make plans to get together every once in a while. i am pretty sure they feel the same as me. none of us would pick a favorite brother or sister. all of our love is equal to eachother.

I have only one living sibling,my younger brother.FOr me,the gender of the sibling won't identify if he or she will be the best sibling..it all depends on the bonding and the depth of the relationship. I'm the eldest and i always dreamed of having an older brother or a sister..but it doesn't mean that life will be smoother with an elder sister or brother coz it all depends on how you handle life..

Speaking from personal experience I have a better relationship with my sisters. I come from a family of ten children of which I am the youngest. By the time I came arround my brothers had moved away from home so I never really got to know them. I am fortynine years old and my oldest brother is seventy two. That's a big age gap. I don't remember him as a child and I'm afraid to say that I still don't know him. He is actively involved in my life now but I find it hard to get to know him. I recently lost my other brother to leukemia a month ago and am sorry to say that we did not communicate very well. My third brother lives away and I don't know him either. As for my sisters, we are all very close. WE are seven girls and we are very supportive of each other. Since I am the youngest in the family I don't know what it would be like to have a younger brother or sister. As the seven of us girls get older we seem to get closer. So for me, it is my relationship with my sisters that is the best.

i am an only child and all my life i have been dying to have an elder brother. i guess i'm the kind of person that has the need to feel protected in one way or another. now i have that protection but from my boyfriend. i've always wanted a big brother but it could have never been possible logically and cronologically speaking...lol... i don't think i could be a good big sister because as long as i am always in need for protection i could never offer it completely... anyway, maybe if it were for me to have a younger sister/brother, things would have become different, who knows?

Siblings should be interrelated, that's the ideal. No one is best or is worst. I have an elder sister and two younger brothers. I make it to the point that I mingle with them fairly so I could build a healthy relationship with them equally. Even though I got no older brother, I still could say that everything's the same. Whether your sibling is a brother or a sister and whether that persong is older or younger than you do - all are definitely the same! What matters is you acquaint with them as often as possible and build that strong camaraderie withing yourselves. Selecting of who's the best is truly a bias thing to do. It doesn't help you in reaching the family's goal to be as one because through such act, you'll be spending more time to the one you think who can go along with you. So, better off that butthead thingy and still in mind that having them in your life is such a blessing!
