Siblings Are The Worst Bullies

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Sibling Aggression Linked to Poor Mental Health

“Fights between siblings — from toy-snatching to clandestine whacks to being banished from the bedroom — are so common they’re often dismissed as simply part of growing up.”

Sibling bullying may cause as much mental health damage as peer bullying

“Sibling taunting, seemingly harmless to some, may cause deep psychological scars that lead to mental health problems like depression and anxiety.”

Stop Bullying: Policies & Laws

“State and local lawmakers have taken action to prevent bullying and protect children. Through laws (in their state education codes and elsewhere) and model policies (that provide guidance to districts and schools), each state addresses bullying differently.”

My niece does that to her younger brother. And she doesn't think it's a problem but I have told her and her parents that she is becoming a bully. And all he wants to do is play with her when they play with their toys but she pushes him away to get him in trouble for nothing.

My stupid little brother/youngest sibling is evil
He gets what ever he wants
And when I cry which is rare I get in trouble it became rare because I would always get in trouble for crying cause I got hurt or something is truly unfair
But when he cries they comfort him and are like oh it’s ok why are you crying?
And he cries cause he gets disciplined or he sees a fly
He’s literally 11
My mom just assumes I cry because I got in trouble for defending myself against his rudeness
And than tells my dad and he believes her and I’m stuck as the bad guy with no one on my side
No one ever is only and always on his side

Brother and I used to fight when we were kids until I hit maybe my preteen years. I'm glad I'm out of school so I don't have to worry about those bullies.

My older sister intimidates me a looooot
She always gets onto me for being over emotional, when she is actually one of the reasons why.
I've even said she intimidates me but she takes it as a joke only my mother really believes me

Noah Condon October 4, 2018 - 5:57 PM

I love my brother but he can be a little bit mean because he’s brain doesn’t really think

Sibling are the worst. I have a brother and he bully’s me to when I am in tears, he doesn’t care at all. He throws things at me and leaves bruises and maybe even scars. All I did to him is care and I get repaid by getting hurt. And I can’t do anything cause I’m much weaker than him.

I was about four when i started getting bullied i was the youngest out of four kids and all 3 sisters ridiculed me it got better as when i was seven my two older sisters started to do it a lot less
But my other sister who is two years older then me continued. She would tease me until i cried throw things at me call me names curse at me i never understood why my mom was too tired to deal with it as it was going on for years she did her best but it continued she would have mad fits when she got her phone taken throwing glass braking plates hurting our cat who we now keep my sis away from her and she would run out of the house and stay in the bushes once she stayed for a whole night an came back next morning eaten by mosquitos she bullies me and still does I'm 14 and she's 16 now and it continues she throws trash at me and when she teases me and i don't cry she starts kicking me and slapping me usually when my mom is not home i have told my dad about it but she's his favorite and just tells her to stop she broke my laptop and got a MacBook Air she broke my phone week later gets and Xbox I'm jealous of her she gets everything while i have a broken computer and a smashed iPhone five my parents have tried to stop her many times my mom had to wrestle her to the ground cuz she was fighting physically with my mom and she even broke my moms finger that she never broke before by slamming the door in her finger over cleaning the bathroom when i was younger she would put dog poop and yellow colored water in my bed she continuously hurts me a hate her alot

I feel like i want to not exist everytime my older brother would win in an argument
And my mother would even agree on that my brother is right!

Im always the who have to adjust with my brother’s actions not me
And i’m the one who is always mocked,taunted,being depressed or just
Sometimes straight up miserable (i might have misspelled that)
But still i wish he didn’t just taunt me

…….my older sister always bullies me, she said I was ugly, dumb, and a fatty. I try not to listen to her because it’s just their opinion. Even though it’s just words it still hurts. This also happens to me with my cousins. I hope you will NEVER go through this if you are,……… well theirs nothing else to say…… good luck…..

In the long term, seeing different (and difficult) personalities helps teach you conflict resolution, and how to deal with difficult situations later

I hate my sister my sister nail finger cut my hand and my arms

Anaissa Villalba May 15, 2019 - 11:10 AM

As a parent of a child who is a bully to her sister I can say I don't know what else to do. I'm at my wit's end and have thought of jest sending her to live elsewhere. It's not physical but emotional and I tried to stop it. She picks up the worst behaviours from school ever since she was 8.

Scar Girl June 16, 2019 - 6:03 AM

My mom just yells at my brothers, nothing else. I'm emo very sensitive, and have depression but my brothers won't stop and I'm a girl. Why do my brothers do this to me? I want them to stop.

Grace Huvvy October 6, 2019 - 12:18 AM

The for me is, I’m the oldest sibling, but my younger sister (age 13), constantly tries to get me going and frequently belittles me.
She does this to my other 3 siblings (yes I have 4 siblings).

My two cousins that I live with are so mean to me and they say they act the way they do towards me is because I act that way towards them but I don't mean to I'm just brutally honest Plus I have mild autism Asperger's and since I been a little nicer they're so mean to me I tell them about the mental illnesses and the Asperger's I have but they think it's just an excuse that could change how I am even though it's impossible for me I always want to cry because they're always making me sound stupid they're always saying mean stuff to me and they don't care if I have mild autism which is the reason why I act the way I do they think it's just an excuse and I could change the way I act they think I do these things on purpose but it's not my fault I just have Asperger's they make me feel down on myself I hate it's so much :-(

Abby's World July 6, 2020 - 9:17 AM

I’ve been bullied since I was in school for my adhd and even before I got dignosed wich I got dignosed at 9, she didn’t say that but it can be part of it but the main part was problems at home which I found out in 7th grade but it dosent make it right but it’s a cause, I’m rude to my younger sister sometimes, who’s 1 year younger because she’s perfect and the favorite or atleast one of them because I have 2 other siblings, an other younger sister who’s 9 years younger and a brother who’s 1 minute older but autism and can’t talk so I could never act like a younger sibling because he could never talk but atleast I’m treated younger then him on Christmas when I’m before him because I’m 1 minute younger

AlexaPlayz Roblox July 7, 2020 - 2:59 AM

Im ten and ever since i joined primary i was severely bullied and then thats when things started at home, a lot of family memberes were dying and at the time i was only 4 so i was in the worst place ever and the worst thing is, my older and younger brothers made it worse by calling me ugly and a mistake and unwanted, stupid, ignorant and disgusting because I wear glasses. Finally when they stopped i got into a bit of a happier place then the next year they came down hard on me, still to this very day, my little brother is popping my arm out of its socket, throwing screwdrivers at my bare legs and burning/cutting/bruising my face with burning hot metal. All this as given me anxiety, social anxiety and a tiny bit of depression. Because i suffer in silence and i have social anxiety, i never tell anyone about it. I wish there was a way that i could confront my brothers without beating me up.

I feel really stupid right now because all my “friends” keep asking me ‘why do you always stay so quiet’ and ‘why are you so weird’ so im gonna share my background story now oof

Mad Doodler August 28, 2020 - 1:04 AM

Bro, my lil brother hits me, calls me names like, ugly, fat,obese, mistake,and stupid. He gave me symptoms of these mental health issues, body dismorphea, anxiety, depression, suicidal tendencies, and random out bursts. I have not been diagnosed with these mental health issues but I am showing symptoms.

If you're dealing with bullies either at school or at home look up Izzy Kalman. If someone is bullying you over and over it's because they enjoy when you get angry and upset. They think it's funny and it gives them a sense of power that they can control your emotions and make you mad. Stop getting angry, stop reacting aggressively, and they will eventually get bored of it. It's the only way. It might take awhile though. And when you stop reacting they will bully you even worse at first to try and get to you. But don't give in, don't give them what they want. They Want you to get angry. So getting angry is a waste of time. It will just amuse them and make them want to bother you more. Stay calm no matter what. They might be physically stronger than you, but work on your mental strength. Show that nothing can bother you or make you mad anymore. Show that you are carefree and calm, no matter what. It won't be easy at first, but you will get better and better at it slowly. You can do it. Believe in yourself. That's more important than anything. Take it easy, take care.
