Siblings rivalry is as old as the days of Cain and Abel. Growing up, I remember my younger brother and I used to be at each other's throat, it was like we were in a competition, we spent virtually 23.5 hours of the day figthing. It was like he refused to accept a girl was older than him and trust me to aways push it in his face that 4 years gap wasn't 4 days. Immediately my parents come back from work, I'll be waiting by their door to start reporting but no matter how much they handled the case, I was never satisfied and would start again.
So am asking, why is it that this rivalry is always worse when a girl has a boy as her immediate younger one? Or am I imagining it?
