Sisters give siblings better mental health, study shows
It doesn't even matter how big the spacing is between the siblings, older or younger, boy or girl...if they have a sister, this study shows that they have better self-esteem and feel happier or less "down in the dumps."
This study is good news for Nicholas too because he has two younger sisters and one older sister. Now we all know why we are so well-adjusted...myself obviously more than Nicholas.
So when your two older sisters pin you down and force you to eat Twinkies against your will (because your mom told you they were for lunches...yeah, it happened to me), just remember that it is helping you become a self-confident and positive person. Apparently.
We really do love our families and their help in shaping the people we have become, and model the type of parents we will be. We plan on doing some posts on specific family members soon...
