What do you do when debate over what to do with a parent has to do with a little more than sibling rivalry?

In brief: Know what is winning

Often there is no single right way to deal with parents and siblings.
Rather than focusing on rivalry, it can be more helpful to understand each person's point of view and see increased understanding of each other as the big win in family situations. You are also given an opportunity to learn something about yourself through these emotional conflicts. Why not appreciate the wisdom gained?

You will learn how much closeness to give your family given this dynamic. Try and keep your distance accordingly and learn some tougher boundaries so you don't repeat the same mistakes with your family.
