Jealousy and envy are emotions that are normal for all humans. But when jealousy and envy happens in the family, things become a bit more complicated. Jealousy is defined as: “an unhappy or angry feeling of wanting to have what someone else has” (Merriam Webster Dictionary) .
Envy can be defined as painful emotion or discontent caused by an awareness of (or observation of) an advantage that someone else seems to have.
