A Beginner’s Guide to a Good Sibling Relationship

By Elena and Lily

Siblings are supposed to fight, all the time. They’re supposed to hate each other’s guts. But are they really? Both of us have fairly good relationships with our siblings, and know plenty of siblings who don’t fight that much, and don’t hate each other. I know, crazy, right? Not really, if you know this insider information.

Give each other space

One of the biggest tips we can give you is to know when to give each other space. To have a good relationship with your siblings doesn’t necessarily mean that you do a lot of stuff together and everyone at school sees you together a lot.

Giving each other space means knowing when to respect each other’s privacy and respect each other’s space. Don’t insert yourself into their space when they obviously don’t want you there. 

This means knocking on their door and letting them hang out with friends without you. Let your sibling do things without you, and do things without you.

Overall, giving each other space will prevent you from getting sick of each other and bickering as much.

Make plans with them

Even though you should give them space, this doesn’t mean you can’t hang out with them. To have a good relationship with them, you should actually have a relationship with them.

Hanging out with each other will help you have a chance to get to know each other better. If you do something fun with your sibling, you’ll be able to enjoy each other’s company more because you’ll have more memories with each other.


The backbone of every relationship, no matter who it’s with, is communication. Remember, it’s ok for siblings to bicker, but these bickering feelings will build up to be more than just small disagreements.

We all know siblings fight, but they don’t necessarily have to. Like every healthy relationship, disagreements happen. We’re all different people so it’s understandable. However, your entire relationship cannot be bickering and built up resentment.
