Why is it that everyone thinks if they have their kids close together the will be "good mates" while growing up? Ive read several times about how people want their kids to be close in age for this reason.
Me and my brother are just over a year apart. I hated him for most of my child/teenage years. Same with DP, his brother is 2 yrs younger then him and they did not get along.
My friend has a sister who is 5 yrs older then her and they have been super close their whole life.
Why is it they think because they are around the same age they will automatically become best buddies? It makes no sense?
