Do you have a sibling “ I Hate You Story” like Max in Where the Wild Things Are ?

Do you have a sibling “ I Hate You Story” like Max did in the 2009 Spike Jones film Where the Wild Things Are. His parents are divorced, and his mom is a single parent struggling to support Max and his fourteen-year -old sister. These circumstances open up the plot that makes Max “wild.”
In the film, Max is the youngest child, his role in his family. His teenage sister’s role is the oldest child, and she plays that out cruelly as she stands by while her teenage boyfriends pummel down Max’s igloo, setting the famous stage for Max to run off to where the wild things are. Role and circumstances affect our original families and can create “I Hate You” stories that last into midlife.
