My brother is seven years older than me, and he doesn’t
know I exist. I don’t expect to be best friends, but I want him to see I’m not
just a little kid. What should I do?
Dear Big Brother Blues,
Talk to your brother. If you have a problem, ask for his
opinion. He may be flattered by how much you value his input, and it will help
him see you are growing up. Suggest that you walk to the dog or watch a DVD
together. And don’t worry! As you get older, the age gap really will seem
smaller and smaller.
