My older sis takes my stuff.. Like my Ipod, earphones, clothes,Camera. And im tired of her taking my stuff.. When i tell my mom i just get yelled at for not sharing, when she has everything i do. What should i do?
Also my sister reads my Diary and knows everything ive been feeling for the past 3 years. Shes telling all my friends and hers what i wrote in that book. I keep hiding it she keeps finding it. What should i do?




Hey girlie,

You have two options: 

1) sit down with mom and tell her, without whining and in a mature way, exactly why this bothers you. If you approach her and tell her you feel as if you have no personal space or respect for your belongings, and that you wish she would back you up because there's no reason for your sis to be stealing these things without asking, you might be able to get more support from mom.

2) Take this as a challenge and get creative. Keep an online blog instead of a diary so your sis will be less likely to find it. Leave her sassy notes in your diary for when she does find it - that will probably embarrass her and keep her from doing it as often! Use your imagination to find better hiding places for your iPod/camera, etc. It's a little tougher for your clothes, but at least you'll be able to protect some of your stuff a little better Smile

I need help with my little sister too..so far my years been great, except for my sister. She's an EXTREMELY passionate, smart, kind 8 year old. But one moment she's nice, the other she's yelling and hitting. She hates it when I admit something about her, she gets jealous when I talk to my own mom and when she's mad at me she yells at the top of her lungs and distrurbs the whole house. I don't know what to do anymore. Sometimes, she irritates me so much, I tease her, and she hits me as hard as can. This isn't something I can talk to with my parents, because they don't know what to about it either. I just want my sister to be nice angel again and not a meanie, it's ruining my mood and my year! HELP MEEEEEEEEE?!?!




Hey babe,

This sounds like a phase your sis is going through - the only way she can find to release her emotions (and anger) is by being loud, forceful, and violent. We all go through something similar at some point, believe it or not, but it just sounds like your sister's is to the extreme. I know it'll be hard, but try to pull away from her a little bit. That means no teasing her, no initiating any fights, no borrowing her stuff...basically, avoid any and all conflicts with her. That way, the only thing you'll have to deal with is her jealousy when you're chatting with your parents. Hopefully, by avoiding conflict on a regular basis, you'll give her time to cool off and turn your home back into a comfortable, safe place. She's still young so talking to her about her behavior won't really help - only your parents can help by punishing her when she acts violently and raises her voice, so try talking to them about possibly changing the way they deal with her behavior along with you. Good luck babe <3

Today I'm going to my last sport's game instead of a concert my brother's really been looking forward to. and only one of my parent's can go. i feel so bad but it's too late to cancel on the game and go to his concert. I feel so bad and that he feels like he's not getting any attention. Help??
thanks




Hey Girl,




It's nice to see you're looking out for your brother. Organize something special for you and your family to do that he would really enjoy, and stick to it. Maybe even ask your mom and dad if you can buy him a gift or something, so he knows that you care!

I have a major problem, and I regret it, too. I joined Facebook underage last year to audition for a part. I even posted pictures and added friends I don't know at all. Now they found out I'm underage and they suspended me. That's not the problem. Before, people said on the pages that they were on drugs for wanting me to have the part. They said I was ugly and not the character, and I beyond anything don't want to tell my parents a single thing about this. Now that I'm suspended, I can't close the groups. And I'm too afraid to contact the creator of the site! I've been physically and mentally bullied to the point I wanted to start hurting myself. Now that I'm cyberbullied, I feel extremely haunted about what I've done. I'm guilty and even though it's ended, I feel depressed.
Please help me!




Hey girl,

This happens a lot more than you think - with our generation, cyberbullying is WAY too common. Read this article. Even though it's about formspring and not Facebook, the idea is the same. Delete your account from the site or just stop visiting it. Tell someone about it if you need support, and remember that there are people out there in the REAL WORLD who love you and respect you. Those are the most important ones <3

Hey chica!

 Here is a link to GL article with some great eye shadow palettes that will be perfect for you http://www.girlslife.com/post/2011/05/19/Beauty-101-Find-a-pretty-beauty-palette.aspx. I think you are at a good weight. And yes, retro halters should be a good fit for bustier girls.

So I have this little cousin and he's on the side of my family that we always spend time with. For some reason, I always get really annoyed with him and can never seem to keep my temper under control. Typically I am a decently patient person and don't loose my temper that often but for some reason, no matter how hard I try, my cousin always irritates me. We will be spending a lot of time with him this summer and I don't know what to do. (sorry this is long)




Hey girlie. That's very typical to have an annoying little cousin. Just try to find some things to do without him. It will work out fine, just try and find a balance where you have time for yourself and time with him.

My sister is the same way, and I am too, so I can't say much.

mod my younger sis is 10 and is sorta fat and super sensitive. all of my sibblings and parents have tried 2 talk 2 her and get her to loose some weight, because she HAS to, and she wont eat better cuz she says she doesnt like anything healthy (fruit, veggies, meat, etc.) she also does not like to run or anything. she wont do anything with us even though we ask her to play vollyball and such with us. how can i get her 2 play with us, eat better, and loose some weight? also the same sis is so babyish and like unicorns, and barbies, and a kajillion stuffed animals. yet she wants to be treated like the 10 yr old she is. she needs us to pick out her clothes 4 her and we have 2 gaurd over her when she does her chores. how can i get her 2 act more mature? thanks. sorry so long! Smile

Hey girly,

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do in this situation. You aren't the one who is responsible for making your sister more mature. It is your parents' job. The best thing that you can do is help your parents when they need you to help out with your sister. As for the sports and loosing weight. Don't try to push her into likeing something that she doesn't like, but show her how much fun exercising is or how delicious a veggie tastes. Help her find things that she likes. It may not seem like it, but dancing is a great way to exercise. Maybe she would like that. Just try to help her find things that she enjoys, then she will be more likely to lose some weight.
Good Luck!
