Emotional needs of an individual demands ears that listen to high and low tides of our life. Though parents and spouse provide the cushion of moral support for an individual nothing can replace the siblings’ love and affection. The fights, demands for toys, funny moments, complaints, vacations and invaluable childhood we would have spent with our brothers and sisters are definite assets we have accumulated in this lifetime.
According to psychologists growing up with siblings has definite advantages in building our personalities. Few important traits we cultivate by growing up with siblings are:
- Accommodative Nature: An individual who learns to share his belongings with another person from childhood naturally develops the quality to accommodate others in life. Will be a better team player too.
- Communication skills: The skills of negotiation develop naturally amongst kids brought up with siblings. Thus they will be better communicators
- Strengthens the attitude towards opposite sex: Kids born with opposite sex siblings tend to understand the emotional needs of opposite sex better and often end up with better relationships in married life
More importantly, the fun-filled moments spent with siblings cannot be replaced by any materialistic gains we would have achieved from career or stock market spikes!

“Power, that’s one thing, but the love of family and siblings is more important, is more powerful than any other power – at least earthly power, at least earthly power,” said Sander Levin.
