Sibling rivalry is a type of rivalry among siblings, blood-related or not. The likelihood of sibling rivalry is more if the siblings are of the same sex[1].

Origin of sibling rivalryEdit

  • Constant comparision of the siblings by parents
  • Competition for time, attention, love and approval of parents
  • Jealousy


  • Sibling rivalry can cause family problems and hurt the children's relationship with their parents.
