Bickering with my bro

 

I like my brother but sometimes he can be really mean or hurtful to me. I try to be nice to him and sometimes he's nice back, and other times he's just a jerk to me. How do I end our ongoing brother-sister fight?


Hey girl,

Sorry to hear about the bro-sis bickering. All siblings argue sometimes, but there is a huge diff between playful teasing and being just plain ol' mean. It's normal to argue every now and then, but there is def no reason he should be bullying you.


You can always try to talk to him about how you feel.  For all you know, he may think he's being funny and playful, without even knowing that you think he's mean.  He is your brother, so as angry as you two may get with each other, he loves you. Try writing him a littler note telling him that sometime he takes his teasing too far.


If he doesn't stop after that, it may be time to bring in the 'rents. Tell mom and pops about specific sitches where you felt like your bro was being especially mean to ya. It'll show them that you mean business, and you're not just making it a bigger deal than it really is.


Sometimes when people have a bad day, they take out their frustration on loved ones because they know they'll always stay loyal. It's not at all a good excuse, but it really may have nothing to do with you.


I really hope this is helpful and things work out for you. Good luck!

xoxo,
Kristen Y.
