Though the two were close and friendly, Sigmund realized that their relationship was becoming confrontational and hateful.Amalie gave birth to another son called Julius one and a half years after Sigmund was born. Studies show that Sigmund was very jealous of Julius. This jealousness perhaps prompted Sigmund to develop sibling rivalry theory later in his career.Sigmund and his siblings were brought up with a non-religious background despite the fact that his parents had been raised as followers of the Orthodox Jews. Although Sigmund always distanced himself from Judaism, he remained loyal to the Jewish secular culture (Hergenhahn, 2009).Just like his siblings, Freud’s early schooling started at home under the direction of his mother. His father contributed to Freud’s education as he was growing older. Eventually, he joined Sperl Gymnasium, German grammar school which emphasized on the learning of Greek and Latin. Freud was always a serious student in school. In fact, for seven years, he remained to be the best student among his classmates.Freud’s parents always encouraged and supported his education. For instance, when the family shifted to Kaiser Josefstrasse in the year 1875, Freud was the only one in his family to own a room. He was also the first to use a gas lamp for reading instead of a candle. It was after his graduation from the German grammar school that Freud started to use the name ‘Sigmund’. Before this, he was only using the name ‘Freud’. He never used ‘Schlomo’ his middle name. His family also never used that name (Hergenhahn, 2009).Freud joined the University of.
