What if your sister is flirting with you?

Chances are that your sister is just fooling around and is not seriously seeking to have an incestuous relationship with you, but if she is, bear in mind that incest is regarded as socially unacceptable, and can result in genetically defective, inbred children. You may wish to tell her to find someone to whom she is not related, to flirt with.

Can twins read each other's minds?

Probably not. Many twins claim to exhibit ESP-like behavior, including finishing each other’s sentences and feeling phantom pain when the other is hurt. However, there is no conclusive scientific evidence that twins have extrasensory perception. Many psychologists agree that these instances of “twin telepathy” are the result of genetically influenced traits or simple closeness as opposed to something supernatural.

One such instance that made news in 2009 involved 15-year-old twin sisters from the UK. One twin, Gemma, claimed that she “had a feeling” about her sister, Leanne, being in danger and went to check on her. She found Leanne submerged in the bathtub after losing consciousness, and her quick response was able to save Leanne’s life. Although this incident sounds pretty supernatural, it can be explained by mere coincidence and the fact that Leanne had suffered from similar “fits” before.

Parenting and Children

How do you make uncontrollable teenagers controllable?

By first coming to the realization and accepting the fact that, people are not meant to be controlled. -Control..What a disgusting word at times, isn't it?

What is "uncontrollable" about these teens, and what could be the underlying reasons for their actions?

How could they better control you, in order to achieve what they want?

Aha! And therein lies the problem, Mom.

It's the conflict of each parties' wants that is getting in the way. (Either that, or your wanting to have this elusive "control")

There is a happy medium between what you want, and what they want.

It is not an issue of exercising "control"...and if that is how you choose to go about it, then prepare to be trampled-and rightfully so.

Why are older siblings so controlling?

  • because they are older and ought to be in charge.

  • plus you need to respect your elders!

They are your older siblings.I know they can make you very mad. But they love you. I mean I have 2 older brothers. They are very protective. If any means nothing be happy you have one. Because My 2 big brothers get mad at anyone who picks on me or Makes me cry. Seriously They punched someone. Hope I helped :D {CarzyAsain89}


Why is my brother sexist?

Because he's a guy

He's not serious, he's joking

A lot of guys have been making sexist remarks in the past months, don't take it seriously, he's only kidding around.

The above answer is nonsense. If a woman makes one joke about a guy, they will typically hit the roof with anger and fume for weeks about what a ..... the woman is.

The problem your brother has is that he is worth little himself, so he starts belittling women to make him feel better.

Do you kiss your little brother?

What do you do if you have a narcissistic sibling?

The same rules apply wherever you find a narcissist in your life. You need to educate yourself about this personality type.

Create emotional distance. You need to strengthen your ability to detach yourself from them in all ways. You need to learn not to waste your time trying to correct them or change the way they act. You can only change yourself and grow stronger. Don't let them define you.

Create boundaries. You need to learn to not be drawn in to arguments so that you can be blamed as being part of the problem. Don't let them "push your buttons". Turn your buttons off and they may eventually leave you alone. Define your limits. Do not allow them to disrespect you, "tell you off", criticize you, or goad you into an argument. Learn to walk away.

Do not share information with them. Do not share your plans, dreams, goals, secrets, worries, or any other private information. They will use that knowledge against you. Do not let them into your personal life. Have your own friends so they won't have the opportunity to undermine your other relationships. Minimize your time with your narcissist.

Do not expect them to change.

Do not expect support from other family members. You must learn that you may not be able to depend on support from other family members for many reasons. They may not be the focus of the narcissists behavior to the same degree as you. They may find it easier to give in rather than deal with the behavior. They may fail to recognize the problem on purpose in order to avoid the responsibility of dealing with it. They may not have the strength of character to deal with the narcissist effectively and that's what you need to find in yourself in order to move on with your own life.

See the following helpful advice by contributors, related links, and the discussion page for anecdotal information from contributors.

  • Gain independence- this is one way to win after coping with negative feelings. it starts with you; you choose your company! Go to a local church or several churches and speak to your pastor and ministry to help you or talk to someone you trust.
  • My experience with narcissistic personality disorder in my family is that boundaries seem to be a fluid thing for them. Going no contact on your part does not necessarily stop them from contacting you. Sometimes it just fuels a narcissistic rage. They have no capacity for introspection so will never recognize, understand or change their behavior. Fortunately, they are predictable. So once you define their methods: gaslighting, passive-aggression, bullying, etc., you are more capable of defending yourself against the onslaught. One of my most helpful responses is, "how unfortunate for you". Confrontation is never effective. It's like asking a blind man to see. But there really is no response to the "unfortunate" statement.
  • I think getting into therapy would help all of us. It helped me. A therapist helped me to see how I was acting in response to my narcissistic sister in unhealthy patterns. You can't change the narcissist but you can change yourself. My sister finally realized I was not going to participate with her games. I now love her from afar and am so much happier. I also never discuss her with my mom who is one of her enablers. I once asked my therapist if she treated many narcissists. Her reply was; "Sadly no, they don't think they need help, I just treat their victims".
  • I think you keep your expectations low. You can have fun with a narcissistic sibling, but you can't do much disagreeing with him or her, so you can't expect to achieve real closeness. Someone who cuts you off or jumps down your throat when you so much as raise an eyebrow is someone you have a one-dimensional relationship with, and since it's you who are in his/her world, you had better hope it's at least entertaining. Draw your boundaries fiercely and demand reasonable treatment as soon as you are able. The sibling may understand this and respect you for it eventually, though he/she will be shocked at first. After that, the going is easier.
  • Narcissists are narcissists, whatever their role in your life -- mother, father, spouse, son, sibling, neighbor, colleague, or boss. They are so homogeneous and predictable. You have to decide if you want to stay in touch, however minimal, or if you are ready to disconnect.
  • If you want to have any kind of relationship (not in the true sense of the word) with a sibling who is a narcissist, you'll need to be the one to do the compromising. With my younger sister, I need to space out my visits, realize that I will leave tired and with a headache, prepare myself to listen to a non-stop stream of complaints and criticism, and generally feel as if the life has been sucked out of me. I do this because I want to have a true relationship with my niece and nephew who have suffered a lot of verbal abuse from my sister over the years to show the children that not all adults are lacking in empathy, are self-centered, critical, say such mean things, and have temper tantrums to rival any 5 year old.

What is the meaning of siblings?

A sibling is a brother or sister- someone with the same parents as you.


What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a sister?

If you are a boy:

Advantages - your sister can introduce you to her friends; You can pull on her hair; you can ask her about how girls think, and what kinds of things they like (they don't like to have their hair pulled).

Disadvantages - she will rat you out to your parents; she will tell all of her friends about your embarrassing secrets; she won't introduce you to her friends.

If you are a girl:

Advantages - you can trade/borrow your sister's clothes; you will always have somebody to go the the bathroom to gossip with; you will always have somebody to share your feelings with.

Disadvantages - she will rat you out to your parents; she will take your clothes without asking; she will take your boyfriends; she will tell your boyfriends about your embarrassing secrets.

i am going to assume you mean from little kids perspective. first off they will have somebody to play with. that's the advantage. the disadvantage is that the firstborn will be lonely and feel unloved. but i think the advantages will outweigh the disadvantages. good luck

I think there are alot of reasons to have a sister. 1. you always have someone to play with. 2. you can borrow things (with asking) 3. you can share things 4. you can play games with them. 5. you are never alone or lonely. 6. there is someone to talk to (not fight with!) 7. if you can't go outside alone, then you have an instant friend. 8. you are safer because there is someone with you. 9. if you are a girl, you and your sister can share clothing. 10. if you are both girls, then you can play Barbies and other girl stuff. 11. You can comb each other's hair. 12. you can ask each other for advise. GROWING UP WITH A SISTER

I was 6 years old when my brother was born and the first thing I said to my parents when I saw that gaping hole in the crib was, "Mom, dad, I've decided I want a violin instead!" LOL I was not a spoiled child but obviously for the first 6 years of my life I had a lot of attention given me, but once my brother came along I was shuffled off to the side. As young as I was I didn't understand and felt hurt at first. I had to babysit him, help out, and when he was 5 or 6 I often had to drag him along with my friends (which they didn't like.) I remember one time my friends talked me into running away from him (down the sidewalk) and my brother would have been 5 years old at the time. Of course I started to run and I heard this tearful calling of my name. It was the first time I realized that there was some bond between my brother and I because I quit running, walked back to my brother, smiled down at him and with every pore of my body kept my temper down and said, "Boy, have you wrecked my life!" We did have a lot of fun together. We played jokes on each other and we stuck up for each other when other kids picked on us. As we grew older a large bond between us grew and now that he's in his 50s and I'm in my 60s we're so glad we have each other because our parents have both passed away. Sometimes we sit and laugh and laugh over the things we pulled off as kids.

Memories are everything in each person's life and hopefully most of them are funny and endearing memories. Whether it's a brother or sister it's fantastic!.

If you are boy -

Advantages-You can know how girls think,supposing you have a dilema with your girlfriend you can ask your sister some advice,she will keep her hands of your electronic stuff,she will find it easy to forgive you....etc

Disadvantages-She will be too emotional so keep your tongue shut unless you want to make her cry and she can be very annoying sometimes.She will sometimes think you are an utter weirdo cause you are a boy

If you are a girl-

Advantage-you too will be very friendly,trust each other a lot,she wil understand your problems well. could be the opposite

Disadvantage-will be unfriendly,hate each other,be your rival......etc

Having a sister can be a truly great thing, but it can also be a nightmare.

  • Advantages- she can tell you about how girls think, she can give you advice about girls you like, she will love you unconditionally, she will be more forgiving than a brother would, she will always have your back, you will never be alone, you will always have someone to walk beside you into something new, you won't have to play alone, you will love her unconditionally.
  • Disadvantages- she will find you annoying, she will get so mad at you, she won't let you touch her stuff, she will be busy with her own stuff, she will tell her friends your embarassing secrets, she will either ALWAYS want to be with you (annoying) or NEVER want to be with you (hurtful).
  • But this is only when you're kids. When you get older you'll be the best of friends. She'll be the one friend that will always be your friend. She will be the one that you can always turn to. And you will have so many great memories of your childhood.

-an older sister

First of all A girl is more emotional than boy so having a sister is very very much beneficial because being girl she always deeply emotionally attached with you, she can take care of your as a mother also ( if elder sister), She will stand for you in whole life even after your parents is not in the world .

FOR REAL!!! :)


How can you deal with feelings of anger and hatred towards a mother who gives you fewer freedoms but more responsibilities than your siblings?

Don't ask me any BUTS or WHY's just do what I say and i guarantee you will get your freedom eventually. My way might take several weeks or months, but it is very effective.

First, respect your parents no matter the reason. Second, stay positive and do not complain about anything you are told to do (like taking orders from a drill instructor) . Third, show your parents that you are more responsible than your siblings. Ultimately, they will trust you more than your siblings.

ACCEPT NO SYMPATHY! (you will know what this means while doing the things i told you to do)

How do you expose a narcissistic sibling?

Here are a few of the things the narcissist finds devastating:

Any statement or fact, which seems to contradict his inflated perception of his grandiose self. Any criticism, disagreement, exposure of fake achievements, belittling of "talents and skills" which the narcissist fantasizes that he possesses, any hint that he is subordinated, subjugated, controlled, owned or dependent upon a third party. Any description of the narcissist as average and common, indistinguishable from many others. Any hint that the narcissist is weak, needy, dependent, deficient, slow, not intelligent, naive, gullible, susceptible, not in the know, manipulated, a victim.

The narcissist is likely to react with rage to all these and, in an effort to re-establish his fantastic grandiosity, he is likely to expose facts and stratagems he had no conscious intention of exposing.

The narcissist reacts with narcissistic rage, hatred, aggression, or violence to an infringement of what he perceives to be his entitlement. Any insinuation, hint, intimation, or direct declaration that the narcissist is not special at all, that he is average, common, not even sufficiently idiosyncratic to warrant a fleeting interest will inflame the narcissist.

Tell the narcissist that he does not deserve the best treatment, that his needs are not everyone's priority, that he is boring, that his needs can be catered to by an average practitioner (medical doctor, accountant, lawyer, psychiatrist), that he and his motives are transparent and can be easily gauged, that he will do what he is told, that his temper tantrums will not be tolerated, that no special concessions will be made to accommodate his inflated sense of self, that he is subject to court procedures, etc. - and the narcissist will lose control.

Contradict, expose, humiliate, and berate the narcissist ("You are not as intelligent as you think you are", "Who is really behind all this? It takes sophistication which you don't seem to have", "So, you have no formal education", "you are (mistake his age, make him much older) ... sorry, you are ... old", "What did you do in your life? Did you study? Do you have a degree? Did you ever establish or run a business? Would you define yourself as a success?", "Would your children share your view that you are a good father?", "You were last seen with a Ms. ... who is (suppressed grin) a cleaning lady (in demeaning disbelief)".

Be equipped with absolutely unequivocal, first rate, thoroughly authenticated and vouched for information.

"Malignant Self Love - Narcissism Revisited" Lidija Rangelovska Narcissus Publications

Sounds like your brother may have the key here, if you can somehow establish a dialogue. Perhaps you could begin by emailing short, non-threatening (chatty, humorous maybe, unrelated to family troubles) notes. If you get a few responses, maybe meet for coffee somewhere, etc. If you can establish a rapport (I know you've probably tried before) he may tell you what he knows about the influence your sister exerted and at least refrain from telling lies on her behalf. Was your father mentally incompetent? Can this be shown? If not, you may have to hope for pressure from your brother to get sis to be more fair about the will. Good luck.


Do you call your brother and sister relatives?

What to do when your father breaks your heart?

  • A father is just a normal human being that will make mistakes by either saying or doing the wrong thing while trying to help raise his child or children. It is important that there are good communication skills in the family. When you feel your father is calm and you can approach him sit down with him in private and express your feelings to him. Hopefully he will understand how you are feeling and he will be a little more careful as to how he treats you. Your father does love you, but working to provide for a family; worrying about paying the bills and other adult worries may make your father a little cranky at times.
