    Chimpanzee jealousy

    "When people start loving their children more than their chimpenzees. Chimpenzees start developing grude and hostility against their children. They start feeling jealeous against them. They start getting jealous of them". Please check guys.

    Re: Chimpanzee jealousy

    It's total nonsense to me. What are you trying to say about children and chimpanzees?

    Re: Chimpanzee jealousy

    It could be corrected from a grammatical perspective, but it would still make no sense IMO.

    Re: Chimpanzee jealousy

    I don't want to say anything about chimpanzees or children. I don't know anything about chimpanzees. I just want to get it checked. Are my sentences are correct?

    Re: Chimpanzee jealousy

    "Grude" isn't a word.

    Is chimpanzee jealousy anything like muskrat love?

    It's pointless spending time and effort making meaningless texts grammatical.

    Re: Chimpanzee jealousy

    Very few people have chimpanzees in their homes. Let's consider a more realistic scenario:

    "When parents start giving their babies more attention than their toddlers, the older children start to become hostile to the babies. They start to feel jealous of them."

    Re: Chimpanzee jealousy

    I have been told that I was jealous of my younger brother. But I was only two years old when he was born, and I don't remember it. (We didn't have any chimpanzees.) I wouldn't be surprised if it was true that I resented him for getting the attention that I used to get as "the baby of the family" and I wasn't getting all the attention I was used to getting. What would have been surprising would have been if I didn't feel that way. (What do you expect from a two-year-old?)

    It's not unheard of for a couple's dog or cat to become jealous when a newborn is brought home.

    I dare say it would be the same with a chimpanzee. Goldfish and hamsters are pretty easy going about these things I believe.
