My brother and I used to be jealous of each other, but we grew out of it. My mom made sure we had things of our own to do, so it wasn't like we were competeing in the same areas.

I guess I'm pretty lucky becuase I have an 18 month old and a 7 weeks old...my oldest is still a baby so he still wants to be babied but since the birth of his lil brother he has really gained a lot of independance, I try to give him plenty of attention though and we have special things that just him and I do together

I have two teenage boys, and I have never noticed a jealousy problem. They do have the normal sibling fights, but they are not due to being jealous. It is usually over the simple things like who gets the bathroom first in the morning lol.
