Q142: Why are sisters devils? What can you do about them?
Whatever you do don’t shoot ’em! (only joking). It will get better as you all grow older – this is a normal process in families and most kids are ambivalent (love and hate close together) at some time.
And ’No.’ I cannot explain it. Every family is different. Some girls just adore their brothers, while others hate them, and some siblings (brothers and sisters) hate each other…but look out if anybody wants to hurt them…fierce punishment will be upon anyone who touches my family! It should get better as you grow older – if it does not get better; then maybe an independent counsellor can point you in a better direction to be real friends.
And parents ’favouring’ one child over another can be really bad causing one to hate the other (but some parents still do it). PS: ’What do your sisters think of you?’
In the Bible, Jacob ’favoured’ Rachel over Leah and there was quite a bit of anger and hostility in the family. Later Jacob ’favoured’ Joseph over his brothers by that ’coat of many colours’. Murder was in the air and 'fortunately' Joseph was sold into slavery in Egypt. That’s in Genesis chapter 29 to 31. It all finished up OK as God had a plan for Joseph to become PM of Egypt – and he did (Genesis chapter 37 to 50). Great story.
