I grew up in northwest London on a council estate. My parents are Irish immigrants who came over here when they were very young and worked in menial jobs all their lives, and I'm one of many siblings.
If you're an older sibling and you have a younger sibling who needs mentoring or is afraid of the dark, you develop nurturing and empathic skills that you wouldn't otherwise have.
I'm from a big family; I have four younger siblings. My parents are still happily married together. I grew up moving around a lot, and my family was certainly not affluent.
Sometimes siblings can get in each other's space.
My little siblings keep me grounded. I'm a kid at heart.
No one could have nicer sisters. No sibling problems there.
Comparison is a death knell to sibling harmony.
My siblings are my best friends.
Having lots of siblings is like having built-in best friends.
God bless you if you have one child, but I don't think anybody should have just one child. Everybody needs a sibling. I have siblings, and I have so many amazing, precious memories with my siblings. I don't know what I would do if I had been an only child.
I had this odd sibling rivalry with America.
When you have a lot of siblings, you always do something to feel special.
Relationships with parents, grandparents, friends, and siblings were important to me when I was young and have remained so throughout my life. Our relationships with other people both shape and reflect who we are. These relationships are infinitely fascinating to explore!
I was born in 1957 as the second son of the late Sat Paul and Lalita Mittal. My father was a politician and, at one point of time, an MP. A gap of two years separates me from both my elder brother Rakesh and younger sibling Rajan.
Parents always stay older than you, but sibling sort of become adults together, and that complicates that relationship, I think.
