Growing up with a sibling is a truly unique experience, so much so that anyone who lived as an only child will never understand the pain and complete weirdness of your parents treating your sibling like royalty while you’re treated like second hand news. Call it the Cinderella syndrome if you like, but parents are unfair, and when parents treat kids differently the kids know it and it affects them for the rest of their lives. If you have the sneaking suspicion that your parents like your sibling better than you then, you need to keep reading and uncover the clues that could lead you to having an emotional breakthrough. Unfortunately, there’s no signpost for how to use this information and you have to figure that out for yourself.

Do you find yourself wondering, “Do my parents like my sister more, or do my parents like my brother more?” Then you’re probably onto something. It’s normal to be unsure about where you stand in the sibling hierarchy, but if you feel like your parents love you less than your brother or sister then that’s probably exactly what’s happening. Take a look at your family photos, have you been pushed to the back? Are you even in them? If it seems like one of your siblings is getting top billing over you then it may be time to frank discussion with your parents about their toxic relationship with their children. Or just ignore it until they die. Whatever works for you.
