Sibling rivalry in childhood is nothing new. Most kids grow out of this as they grow older. But be warned that some kids get psychologically affected by constant bullying. Sibling bullying is an increasing trend among children and teens. It can prove to be disabling in the long run. Bullying by sibling can happen through physical assault, saying mean words, stealing or breaking one’s property or simply forcibly snatching away something.

It may lead to severe emotional distress in the bullied child. He may suffer from anxiety and depression. If it goes untreated, it may extend into the adulthood too. Hence, as a parent, do not ignore any signs of bullying and seek professional counseling at the earliest.
