Sibling Changes One’s Life According to the Oxford Dictionary of English, ‘A sibling is each of two re more children or offspring having one or both parents in common.’(Oxford Dictionary of English). I am not the only daughter in my family. I have a nine-year-old sister who is really naughty. I have lots of experiences that can show that life with a sibling is extremely different from being the only child in a family. Having a sibling who is smaller than you changes one’s behavior, responsibility and personality. One obvious alteration of behavior for having a sibling is your behave style. Before you have a little sister or brother, you can do whatever you want and act like a child. Everyone in your family will treat you like an ingrown child. In contrast, when you have a sibling, you have to follow rules and spend your free time taking care of your little sister. I have this own experience of taking care of my sister all day long. It was really boring, and I am forced to do this thing. Therefore, after I went through everything, I realize that I was grown up and became more mature. Having a sibling changes not only your behavior, but also your parent’s treat about you. Prior to having a little sister, everyone in my family adored me because I was the only daughter. Once my sister was born, they treated me like an adult, which is really different from my sister. Another conversion for having a sibling is your responsibility. ‘I am becoming more bound after I have three sibling.’ Said Ms. H. As the example of Ms. H, we can notice that having a sibling can not only make one’s more responsible, but also be more protective and patient. According to the article ‘how to be a good sister’, there are four ways to be a good sister: be thoughtful, spend time together, keep the peace and boost morale. (Paragraph2) we can see that those points are all about taking care of your sister, which can make one’s become a culpable sister. The third adjustment I want to talk about is one’s personality. Nowadays, psychologists started to research the interaction between siblings; this relation may change our personality. (Sibling relation effect each other’s personality paragraph 1) the
is this area is the IQ debate. Studies have shown that in late adolescence adoptive siblings are no closer in IQ than strangers (correlation close to 0) while full siblings show an IQ of 0.6. The pattern is even more apparent in twins with identical twins who were raised separate having a highly similar IQ (Cherry, 2009). These types of findings have caused the continuous debate and to how much or how little one’s personality is determined by nature or nurture.

child does something disapproving, it is often said that it is the parent to blame. However, all the fault is not in ones parent. With ones childhood come three main things to that contribute to it: ones parents, ones friends and or peers, and lastly one’s own observations. Although these things contribute, they are not evenly distributed in ones childhood.
Parents are ones first teachers. We learn how to interact with people by first interacting s and watching them connect and relate to others…
each individual’s personal support environment. Between family structure and gender roles
the ideal family is a family that gets along, supports one another, accepts everyone for who
they are, and works together to solve problems. This is commonly found in a mother, father,
and sibling family structure, with no certain gender roles within the household.
The family structure is such an important part to understanding ones definition of
family. Many people believe the structure to be more of a question of “who is on top?”.…

Perspectives on Change in Adulthood
“I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”
- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Initially, I was a bit hesitant to use this quote because I thought it might not translate well. With that being said, I concluded that I truly do like the notion of not having the ability to return to “yesterday,” and that is a big “yesterday” in my mind since…
theory, utilitarianism and deontological ethic theory. “Each theory emphasizes different points such as predicting the outcome and following one's duties to others in order to reach an ethically correct decision” (Trevino, 2011).
As we define virtue theory can think of examples of those in a divine light as it reflects a person who is pursing excellence in life. This type of ethical theory looks to the positive in the next person and focus on their character rather than their actions. Ethically…

a lot of different characteristics that go into shaping one’s personality. Some characteristics might be how we were raised, others being the financial stability of our family, or maybe even if we grew up in a single parent home. One characteristic that people may not think about is the birth order of an individual. Picture yourself as being an only child or maybe even if you were part of the Brandy Bunch family, and imagine how your life would be different, or possibly how it would affect your…

Along with the changes was the trends of literature works in America due to the fad of English creations of literature. However, American publishers…
can’t even remember my mother’s uncles or aunts. As for my father’s side of the family, other than his parents, my aunt Carla and her children I never met anyone else.
