i would side with her but every time i try to TALK to her when shes angry, she yells at me. i tried!

Hey girl, I'd give her some time to cool off right now and then try again. She just needs to get her emotions in check.

thanks for reading this. i have 2 sisters, and i'm in the middle. My younger sister is being a total pain in the butt. she's turning 11 in a month but she doesnt act like it! she cries and gets angry over the littlest things. i usually 'side' with my older sister (who is 19) and tell her to calm down and ask her why she gets mad over the stupidest things. but she yells at me and says: "well why do you always side with nora?!" (my older sister.) and we get into a fight. this happens ALOT and i have spent the whole summer dealing with it. my mom has noticed her behavior but does nothing about it! how do i get my sister to be a NORMAL HUMAN BEING which she seems incapable of doing right now?!

Instead of siding with your older sister, try to understand why your sister feels the way she does

My Dad is mad at my mom because she spent 20 dollars on 2 pairs of shoes for ME, and now their ignoring eachother! It's been 1 week since they've talked, my Dad even sleeps on the couch and my family doesn't eat dinner together anymore. I'm really scared of whats going to happen. Whenever I ask how I can help, they tell me to stay out of it what should I do? Please help!
P.S. My mom already apologized 100000 times, so apologizing won't do any good!

Hey Chloe,

Try to relax. Your parents are right - this is an issue between them and is not because of you, so it isn't your job to fix it (even though I know you want to because it's the worst when parents fight). If they've reacted like this to a minor disagreement, there was probably something going on in private beforehand that you didn't know about. My parents have done stuff like this before as well, but it was only temporary. Just try to go about your usual activities and try to stay upbeat around them both. If you miss regular family dinners, you could do something subtle like offering to make dinner one night. Set the table while dinner is ready to subtly suggest that everyone will be eating dinner together that night. You can't fix the problem, but you can hint to your mom and dad that you're getting caught in the middle when things change like this - which isn't fair at all. Try to stay positive, remember that your parents love you even while they're fighting, and you'll get through this! <3

MOD Thanks for looking at my question. I have an older sister who is 22, and she's never really had a boyfriend before. She found someone in January of this year and they were really close for a couple weeks. I guess something went wrong though because they broke up. I don't know the specifics. She's been extremely depressed since then, crying at random times. Today she told my mom she's been having suicidal thoughts. It's July, and she hasn't seen this guy since February, and she's still very very upset. I don't know what to do, and I'm worried about her. Everyone says that she'll be fine but I don't know. Is there anything I could/should do? Thanks

Hey girly,
You should definitely talk to your parents about your worries. Tell them that you want to do something to help and that you think she isn't getting the help she needs. You also might want to suggest that she go and see a therapist. It might help all of you. Good Luck!

MOD MOD MOD: My brother is 19 and I'm 13. Whenever I annoy him he hits me. I tell my mom and she just blows it off. I am getting really sick of it and I tell him to stop but he never will. I hurt my back in 6'th grade and he hit me on the back a few weeks ago and it really hurt me. HELP!

Hey girl,

    Try talking about this with your mom again, and tell her how serious this issue is to her. You can also try telling your brother how much her hurts you. If that doesn't work, try staying away from your brother and hanging out in different places.  Good luck! x0x0

MODERATOR (Alyssa B.)!!! He's really 26. He's always in a teen phase. :-p

Hey girl, wow, well, rest assured then. I have a way older brother, and I can tell you they eventually grow up. Eventually. ;) Hang in there!

MODERATOR!!!!!!!! I feel like my mom loves my older brother more than me. See, my brother is 26 and I'm 13. When he was 13, he hung out with the wrong crowd and his grades started to tumble downward. I hang out with nice people and had some B's but finished the 7th grade with all A's. When he still lived at home and I was a little kid, he would always be mean to me and also wrestle me. He never got in trouble for it! Once, he grabbed me by the ankles and he made my chin hit the floor on purpose. No groundings or "don't do that again"s. He never told me sorry. When my brother got drunk at 16, she didn't even get mad! But when I gave my brother's cell number to my friend (I thought she was just joking about prank calling him), my brother tattled on me and she got very mad! I admitted that I was in the wrong and punished myself for it, but she's still mad. What should I do? My dad notices that my mom loves more than me. Help please! Thank you and God Bless!

Hey girl, it sounds like (if he's really 26 -- I have a feeling you meant to say 16!) some time has elapsed, but trust me when I say your parents do love you both equally or try to. Your mom just may not show it. In terms of his treatment of you, I'd just be wary for now. Don't trust him with things that are important to you. Approach him cautiously and keep your distance otherwise. Right now he's in his own little teen phase, and there's no need to let him bring you down with him.

I'm really upset about something. I have loved art forever. I started taking lessons when I was 5 and currently am- at age 13.
I feel like I am nothing if I'm not an artist! And I love when my family gushes over my art- I am the one in the spotlight when it comes to art. It's my world!
But now, my brother, who is 10, decides he wants to take art lessons!! He just likes drawing things like dragons and cartoon characters and stuff- nothing like the challenging acrylic paintings and sketches I do! But if he takes lessons, who knows how good he will be! He already 'took' soccer from me- I started playing in first grade-then he decided he wanted to do that too!!! He's the soccer star now- why can't he let art be my thing!? He says he likes it- but for me, it's my life.
My parents encourage him. I understand that they should, as parents, but nobody understands how I feel! What should I do???? HELP!

Hey girl,

Ouch - having a copycat on your heels is never fun! I know I'll prob sound like your parents on this one, but really try to remember that your brother is a few years younger and does look up to you as a role model. He probably sees you excelling in soccer, then art, and wants to try it because he sees how happy it makes you. He's just searching for his passions as he grows up! Try not to be too jealous on this one and let the "art phase" run its course - I'm sure it will. And hey, remember that being a role model is a pretty powerful thing. As long as you're not too pushy, you could help him discover other hobbies that are totally his own...but come with your stamp of approval (which he'll love since you're the older sis!). So, if you see opportunities for him to pick up other hobbies (like guitar lessons, a new ultimate frisbee team, etc.), leave brochures on his bed or chat about them with him. Just try to be supportive as he's growing up and learning what he loves - you'll all be happier for it!

MODMODMOD!!! So I have this crush that has been my BGF forever and he knows I like him. He doesn't feel the same way but I like him anyway. My mom says I can tell her anything but when I tell her private things she goes straight to him and tells him just because. I really don't want to talk to her because she will just do it more!{P.S. I don't want him to know everything!!!!!!}

Hey girl,

She tells your BGF the things you say? Whoa... no good! The best thing to do is to sit down with your mom and honestly tell her that it hurts you when she does this. Tell her you'd love to be able to confide in her and be a good friend to her, but ya gotta trust her first. You can't do that if she runs and tells your secrets to other people! Just tell her how much you value your relationship with her but she needs to remember that, even though you're her daughter, she doesn't have to swoop in and save you every time you tell her something <3 Just be mature and it'll go fine!

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 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??

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

my sisters 10, but shes pretty cool just treat her like a mature kid and like, include her and she'll start to feel more mature and happy

by izzy girl on 5/25/2011 7:57:50 PM


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.

by nerdisthewurd26 on 5/25/2011 4:42:29 PM


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!
