Brothers Are So Annoying!
My brothers are so annoying! I feel like killing them sometimes! When I ask for help they ignore me and act like it would be death to help. I'm the one who always does my chores, who studies, who baby sits. They just play and have fun. When they do something special, they get recognized and I don't. I feel like the MAID of the House. What should I do? – Ana, 12, Washington
Try telling your parents and maybe they'll help. But try to ignore your brothers, too. They can grow up to be any way that they want, and it sounds like they have a little too much fun. But you are being responsible and smart, and you'll grow up to be a smart and responsible person. Just try to ignore the way that they are, but also tell your parents so that they are aware. – Amanda, 13, New MexicoFamily conference time! Seriously, the only way you’re going to get any action here is to get your parents on your side. Remember, your parents are not mind readers – if you don’t tell them that you’re having a problem, they won’t know about it. First, make a list of all the things you’ve done in the past month that make you feel like a maid rather than a sister. Write it down, and organize it a bit. The act of writing it out will vent some of your anger and hopefully allow you to approach your parents with some maturity and sanity. Screaming and yelling won’t help. It may even take more than one meeting with them – don’t expect miracles in one night. But if you work with them, and show them that you’re being responsible and adult about this, you’ll definitely be the good kid. Hope this works out better for you! – Emma, 17, Georgia
