How To Make Sibling Day Special This Year

Jul 19, 2008
This year to make someone's sibling day that bit more special, try sending them a free e-card. E cards come in all sorts of different categories, so I'm sure there will be a free e-card to suit the person or people you with to send your e-card to.

The beauty about free e-cards is they can be sent from nearly any where in the world. Whether you love in New Zealand and want to send your free e-card to New York you can.

There are few relationships in life so unique and complex in their influence on mindset and behavior as the ones formed by siblings. Brothers and sisters are a link to a common past, shared traits and experiences, not to mention parents.

No one else can better know how a particular parent may behave towards his or her child, and that knowledge can lead to the development of a subtle, if tenuous alliance among siblings in the face of a mutual foe.

On the other hand, siblings also compete for the affection, attention, and approval of their parents, and feelings of not being loved can be the result of one sibling's perception that the other, or another in large families, is receiving more encouraging treatment from a parent.

In spite of the potential rivalry, maintaining a connection with your brothers and sisters throughout adulthood is vital to the survival of the family dynamic. National Siblings Day, originated by Claudia Evart to mourn her brother and sister, both of whom died young, commemorates the special sibling relationship and reminds everyone that not only is sibling estrangement not inevitable, but that staying close is in fact what family is all about!

These days the nuclear family may include people that are not only biologically unrelated, but also come into each other's lives at unexpected times. So, in celebration of National Siblings Day, the inclusion of step- and adopted siblings is vital to keeping the changing face of the modern family up to date.

Though the connections made between people that enter each other's lives through later marriages and other life situations may be diametrically different from the bond formed by biological siblings, it is no less important to pay those even more intricate relationships ample attention and nurture their development.

Parents of siblings should use this holiday to encourage interaction and communication between them from an early age. If you and your siblings no longer share a home and are separated by time, distance, and lifestyle, this is your chance to renew your connection with them.

Reach out across the country, or around the world, and bring your brothers and sisters together again through phone calls, scheduling reunions that are independent of times that your family already gets together, or establishing an electronic link. Keep updated on your respective lives, because you never know what you might find out about each other, or yourself!

Millions of free e-cards are sent each year, and there is sure to be an e-card perfect for you. One of the best things about free e-cards is that you can personalize them with any message you want.
