I know this may seem like something I could learn to deal with on my own, but I've
just gotten so annoyed and I am out of ideas on how to deal with my stepsister. She
is 10 years old, while I am 13.
Her mother is very weird and over dramatic. so that causes my stepsister to be the
world's laziest and most dramatic person on the planet.
She is very mean to our little brother, who's only a little over 1 year . Whenever he
simply walks near her, she screams at him and pushes him away. I can understand her
not being used to him, because she's only around 3 months out of the year. But she
has no reason to act the way she does.
I know this seems like something my mom and stepdad should handle, but I can't just
let her hurt him while they're both at work and I'm babysitting. Also, my stepdad
doesn't really think she's doing anything wrong. He says the baby is being a pain and
deserves a little discipline.
Any ideas on how to make her calm down and be nice to our little brother.
Another thing I have a problem with is that she seems to think I'm her slave. It
sometimes seems that the only sentence she knows how to say is "Can you do something
It drives me crazy. I fix her food for her. Turn the TV on for her. I do all the
chores and on top of all of that, take care of the baby.
She's just so lazy.
And she doesn't leave me alone. She always jumps on me and "hugs" my neck very
tightly.She doesn't let me go to sleep, and purposely lays on top of me when I do go
It's driving me insane. I just want to scream at her to leave me alone and stop being
but she's so sensitive and a whiny baby. She'd tell her dad, and he'd get mad at me.
So what can I do, without hurting her feelings, to make it clear that she needs to be
nicer, help a little more, and mind personal space?
