Siblings are your brother(s) or sister(s). Sibling rivalry can be a problem that many parents have to deal with. However, as Greek philosopher Antisthenes once said, "When brothers agree, no fortress is so strong as their common life."

About Siblings

A sibling is one of two or more individuals having one or both parents in common. A male sibling is called a brother, and a female sibling is called a sister. In most societies throughout the world, siblings usually grow up together, facilitating the development of strong emotional bonds such as love, hostility or thoughtfulness. The emotional bond between siblings is often complicated and is influenced by factors such as parental treatment, birth order, personality, and personal experiences outside the family.Sibling is a modern revival of the Old English word sibling, meaning 'relative, kinsman', a derivative of sibb 'kinship, relationship', from Proto-Germanic *sibj__ 'race', from Proto-Indo-European *s(w)ebe_- 'one's own people, tribe'.
