How to use sibling in a sentence?

  1. Alexis Thompson:

  2. Padraig Harrington of Ireland:

    Being here is a little bit like Christmas dinner or Thanksgiving for your family. You could have a sibling sitting there and — we’ll Americanize it: You could be a Republican; they could be a Democrat, but you’re friends at that particular time, and maybe politics isn’t mentioned at the dinner table, we are here for two days, and it’s great to see.

  3. Mattis Collier:

    It doesn't discriminate. It's not just poor people. It's not just people without fathers or mothers or guidance. It's everybody. It's your sorority sister. It's your friend. It's your sibling. It's your child, and I think it's very important for people to realize that you need to talk about it and you need to explain it while you're younger. It's not just bruises that are giveaways for an abusive relationship. ... It's how someone talks to you. It's how someone treats you. It's how someone talks about you to others.

  4. Paul Hokemeyer:

    When a parent remarries a much younger spouse, the main dynamic that comes into play with adult children is sibling rivalry

  5. Kari Risnes:

    We compared siblings and found that the risk was higher in a preterm born compared to their full born sibling.
