Why does my brother or sister bully me?

Bullying is frequently motivated by emotions of inadequacy in comparison to the other sibling. Perhaps your sibling or sister felt your parents preferred you more, and as a result, they got envious. Alternatively, your sibling may believe that you were more popular as a child or that you had an easier existence. Regardless of the reason, when they feel inadequate, their response is to try and make you feel it too.

Siblings often compete with each other for attention from their parents. If your sibling gets favored over you, they will feel insecure about this and need to make you feel bad about yourself so you will stop competing for your parents' love and respect.

If you think that your sibling is bullying you, first check if there is a physical cause for their actions. Are they being mean because they are angry at you? Do they have something against you? If so, you will need to deal with them directly rather than trying to talk your brother or sister into changing their behavior.

If their actions are not caused by anger, then they are trying to hurt you emotionally. This means that they are jealous of your relationship with your parents or feel inadequate because you are better looking or have more talent than they do. In this case, you should discuss their behavior with your parentso that they can take measures to prevent further incidents from happening.

Siblings can be very cruel to each other, but if you take the time to learn about their specific situation you can help them develop more effective ways to cope with their problems. It may be necessary for you to intervene occasionally to prevent violence between the siblings, but most important is that you provide them with a safe environment in which to grow up.

Why do older kids bully their younger siblings?

Issues. Sibling bullying can potentially lead to school bullying. When an older brother or sister insults and torments a younger sibling, the smaller sibling feels powerless. To reclaim their sense of dominance, these children attack others, sometimes even imitating their elder brother. Or else they hide from life.

Older siblings may bully their younger siblings for several reasons. Sometimes they just want to have some fun by causing them pain. This is often called "sibling rivalry" and it is normal for young children to fight over their parents' attention. If one child in the family gets more love and attention than another, they will feel deprived and act out their feelings by pushing their sibling off a swing, kicking them under the table when they are eating, and saying mean things to them.

Other times, older siblings may bully their younger siblings because they don't know any better. For example, an eight-year-old boy might hit his four-year-old sister because he has been told that girls cannot take a punch. Or an eleven-year-old girl might call her two-year-old brother names and push him around because she has been taught that children should be treated with respect.

Still other times, older siblings might bully their younger siblings because they are trying to protect them.

No matter what the cause, these negative relationships often lead to bullying by girls against their siblings.
