Whether it is and older sister being nasty or grandparents neglecting the brother over the sister, parents have to learn to strike the right balance
Our older daughter, 13, is a star student, popular and well-regarded by teachers and our extended family. At home, however, she is getting more and more vicious towards her younger sister, who is 8. There is nothing physical, but she is mean. Recently, she was so dismissive and nasty to her on some simple matter that the younger one literally went into a shell (not a sulk) for half a day.
