As the eldest child in our family, I serve as a role model to my three younger siblings (two girls and one boy). As much as I want to stay calm at all times when dealing with any of them, there are instances when I lose my temper, get mad and become upset. I’m just a human being, after all.
The thing that upsets me the most is when my siblings fight over petty things and end up wanting to hurt each other physically. The eldest that I am, I feel it is my duty to show them what diplomacy means and how it works. It takes a lot of my energy and can be exhausting at times, but it’s the only way to solve any fight, may it be between siblings or not.
I know fights between and among my siblings are commonplace (occasionally I get involved in one myself!), but I do hope their fights will decrease with age.
