My Parents Love My Younger Sister More Than Me

My Parents Love My Younger Sister More Than Me


This is Jennifer, and she has a confession to make. She’s spent a lot of time hating someone very close to her, and now she’s bitterly ashamed of herself. This is her story.

She has a younger sister, Stella. She was 4 years old when her sister was born, and she remembers that she was really enthusiastic to have a little baby sister who she could play with. Well, she was still a baby herself, to be fair. But things went awfully wrong from the very beginning.

Stella was born underweight and had to be kept in the hospital. She struggled for weeks, and all the family’s relatives and friends worried about her. In the meantime, Jennifer was forgotten by everyone. Just three weeks previously, she had been the center of everyone’s attention; everyone played with her and gave her presents, and now everyone was talking only about Stella – no one even wanted to know how Jennifer was! So she found an inventive way to attract the adults’ attention to herself: she threw tantrums. But her parents very soon explained to her that a tantrum doesn’t make everyone forget Stella, and that she should be less selfish.

To be honest, she got very offended, but this passed totally unnoticed by everyone. When they finally brought Stella home, Jennifer felt nothing when she looked at that ugly screaming creature. She couldn’t play with her as they had promised. But at least she finally got her parents back! But no one was ready to spend all day playing with her any more – her parents had other, more important things to do, such as taking Stella to the doctors. Jennifer had to learn to mind her own business and to live with only half of the attention that was supposed to be all hers.

Then she went to school. Things didn’t improve. Stella remained a sickly child, and her parents were constantly dedicating their time, effort and money to curing one illness after or another. And all the while, Jennifer was just an ordinary kid with her school, hobbies, and friends. Her parents gave her attention, but not as much as she needed, and she solved her problems pretty much on her own. Her attitude to her parents became very bitter, and she started detesting that helpless monster of her sister.

When Jennifer became a teenager, things got even worse. It was always “Stella this, Stella that”, while it seemed that since she herself was no longer a child, her parents assumed their job done. She tried to rebel to get more attention, to ask for help, even to talk to them. This is when her parents explained to her that they loved her a lot, but they saw her as an independent person who didn’t need that much support. “Look Jenny, you’re strong, you can literally cope with everything! Stella is weak, she’s sick all the time, who will take care of her? But you won’t have any problems whatever the situation. We’re so proud of you!” Yeah, pride is great, but what about a bit of support?

The worst episode occurred when she was due to go to a new school in another city, and therefore had to move away from her parents for the school term. She’d been asking her parents for ages to buy her a guitar. Everything seemed fine – her sister went to school, and Jennifer thought that finally they would have a well-balanced family. She didn’t communicate much with Stella – she had little in common with her, and wasn’t eager to talk to her when she tried awkwardly to start a conversation. And she was sure that she would get her guitar. Then suddenly Stella got some lung infection and had to stay home for a couple of months, and after that the doctors said that her parents needed to take her to the seaside to convalesce for at least a month. Guess what Jennifer got in return? “Oh sorry dear, a month at the seaside is expensive, can you wait a bit?”

She was furious. Again, that little princess got everything, and now she had to leave home like a stray dog! She didn’t even try to reason with her parents that time, she just left boiling with anger and disappointment. She even imagined how wonderful life would be without Stella, and didn’t feel any sympathy towards her. Those feelings didn’t fade away during the term and she came home all bitter for Christmas. When suddenly, the time came for giving presents. And Jennifer was amazed to see Stella bring out a guitar.

She couldn’t understand what was going on. She knew her parents didn’t have any money. Stella said that it was a present from her personally. She confessed that she’d felt bad for being the reason why their parents hadn’t got Jennifer her guitar, so she spent all her personal savings on one, and even did some odd jobs during the autumn to collect money. Jennifer just broke down in tears. Now she’s trying to improve her relationship with her parents and her sister. She’s learned that hating someone without really knowing them well is childish and can backfire on you.

    guys guys. she’s giving the perceptive as she had when she was a child and how she felt and saw things. she sees know she was wrong and her little sister was ill. she still doesn’t feel this way.
    it’s how many kids feel when they get a new sibling.

  3. Tatiana B says:

    They made it look like Stella was 6 when she should have been like 12 or something here because she was 4 years younger than her older sister

  4. #Slimey_ Productions9858 says:

    This happened to me too but it was my older twin sister. I was born with asthma and extremely bad allergies. But my sister was scared of EVERYTHING, so I was in the meantime neglected. My parents think my sister is so wonderful and lovely, but she hurt me in private and when I tried to tell her to stop my parents would yell at me. I developed a very rare condition at 9 called, cold urticaria, but my mom would pay no attention to me and still slept with my sister and my dog. In my own time I would do chores, clean my room ( and my sister’s room ), do my homework, and study by myself, while my sister laid lazily on her bed or the couch. I needed no help, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give a child no attention. This is still going on in my life I also have an older brother so he suffers with this too.

  5. Best cray says:

    Stella is so thoughtful for buying you that guitar

    • Maria Kyriakoulis says:

      I know like Stella isn’t a monster and she is not a ugly creature cause when you were born you were ugly and she could have died

  6. RainbowPal Vlogging says:

    Guys, please watch until the end before sharing your thoughts.

    • Ragnar Lokbrok says:

      Terrible parents

    • Romeo Torres The Filipino Vlogger says:

      +Ragnar Lokbrok its not,by the time you are old parents tell you to learn it yourself,how about if your parents are gone who r u gonna ask?ur friends?growing up means under standing and learning by yourself,my parents dont teach me anymore coz i am growing up,thats part of growing up,in america by the time people turn18 years old they live by theirselves

    • Romeo Torres The Filipino Vlogger says:

      Squishes your parents gave you life,i would be thankful with that,try to understand,ill understand you you understand them,its just each other need to understand themselves,i felt what you also felt,i understand it and now i dont have a problem with that anymore

    • OmgItsMilly says:

      I know how you feel only people who have younger siblings understand also my mum then says you get loads of attention

    • Ness Earthbound says:

      I went through the same thing.

  9. Chang Chloe says:

    well her sister isnt that bad but it doesnt change the fact that their parents didnt buy her a guitar, it was her sister
    her parents are still biased to her

    • Avalasia Love says:

      negligentgiant 1. The seaside trip and school were necessities and the guitar was a treat. Even if you’re well off financially you still have to be smart about what you spend money on.
      2. Complications can happen at the last minute and doctors can’t always predict them.

    • ? Mocha_studios ? says:

      Avalasia Love I still personally believe if you have two kids, care for them equally. I have a brother with autism and other problems, yet they spend money equally on both of us. And don’t go commenting,”It’s different!” Cuz it’s no excuse to neglect one of your children, even if the other is sick.

    • Täheli Hestia Sinivee says:

      umm.. if you had a child who`s life depends on that seaside trip and a child who wants a guitar then what would you do? Buy a guitar and let your other child die?

    • UwU says:

      Health is important but really, it’s not a reason to neglect the older child’s needs. But Jenny felt bad after that so I guess it’s all well

    • AcidGamer says:

      +Avalasia Love no, paying for a trip and paying to send your child to school aren’t necessities. Those are WANTS, not needs. You WANT to pay for your child to get a “better education”. You WANT to send your child on a seaside trip. But you don’t NEED it.

    A real story about Auggie and his sister


    Wow your sister is so nice??????

    • Brandan Kizi says:

      True, my two sisters are little pricks, l got a lesbian sister who argues with my dad all day and I got a annoying ass 11 year old sister who’s on her period, then me the middle child is always fighting with that 11 year old bitch my sisters are not the nicest, especially when they’re both a teenager/ pre teen

    • gamerroblox 19991 says:

      Brandan Kizi ur so lucky I wish I had a sister I have an annoying brother

  12. thicckatsuki says:

    “I was a normal kid, I went to school, had hobbies, friends…”
    *thats better than having a disease and being sick all the time*

    • General Ford says:

      +That Stranger are those little things you not giving a shit and putting no effort in?

    • sapphire. says:

      Lol that’s not the point

    • Yosiku says:

      She meant as the fact that she was “normal” is the reason why didn’t get attention from
      Her parents

    • Starii Productions says:

      +That Stranger I can completely relate. I have moderate to severe asthma and to add on to that, I have GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) I love school, and I would consider mt grades good (average is A – A+) But nobody ever listens to me. Like, if I told someone I had GAD, they would laugh and say, “Haha, your only 12. You have no idea what stress is”

    • That Stranger says:

      +General Ford
      Those little things are the fact that I don’t talk in class. This is literally why they fail me. And no, I can’t force myself to talk because it physically makes me feel bad.

  13. Kevin Here says:

    Before my little brother was out of my moms belly,my parents already didnt care about me that much!

  14. •Nugget Ninja• says:

    How about the younger ones?

    *and the older siblings got the attention..*

  15. Nagi Naoe101 says:

    My sister was perfect as a kid and she also did not have LD (learning disability) like I did. I felt like an utter failure all through school. My sister later did not understand why I shut myself off from her and my parents, especially my mom. My mom always treated my sister like she was the best, and I was always feeling like I was always going to be er….”retarded,” my sister never used that word and in fact she felt hurt when I said I was tired of being treated like I was stupid, because my mom always said I was supposed to be limited. So when I got engaged,my sister was all happy, but my mom, no she found every reason to demand I dump him. And for every reason in the world my sister kept telling my mom to stop. To this day I regret being mad at her, it was never her fault that my mom always made my sister so more important

    • Munira Awesome says:

      What’s wrong with your mom? If the person your engaged with makes you happy why would your mom tell u to dump them I hate this so much percents neglecting their kids in the WORST

    • Nagi Naoe101 says:

      My mom always used my LD as a reason I cannot do some things even if it was an outright lie

  16. Space Muffin says:

    My parents loved my younger sister more than me *ACTUALLY HAPPENED*
