In my opinion there is no stronger bond than that of siblings. Siblings grow up together and experience a lot of the same things. When siblings are close in age they can really be each other’s best friends. The bond that I have with my siblings is ridiculously strong, and while I have other friends none of them come close to being what my siblings are to me. As a parent I feel like most of us strive for our children to be best friends.
I found a site recently called The Better Mom and the author Tricia shares the same feeling that siblings should be best friends. Her post titled, “Raising Kids to Be Best Friends for Life” is really awesome. It talks about her family and their relationships with one another. They seem to have a great family dynamic and I respect that.
