Taking a trip down memory lane, I recall my daughters, Maria and Lisa, having a very loving relationship when they were little. Maria was very protective of her younger sister, who was 4 years younger.
Then, as they approached puberty and adolescence, there was sibling rivalry, which was quite unpleasant.
Now, both daughters are in their thirties, and they are best friends who get along well with each other.
Maria is a high school math teacher in Hawaii, and Lisa is a physical therapist in Nevada. Both are self-supporting and financially independent.
Very good kids. I am pleased with their progress.
