Question Little Brother - May 1st 2014, 07:29 PM

Hi guys I was just wondering if anybody could please help me, my little brother( he's 11) gets away with about just everything. Last month he grabbed a kitchen knife and tried to stab me but since I used to take self defence classes dodged him and shoved him down. I told my mom and he just spun the story around and said I would not let him past but really I was just searching for something to eat in the closet. (don't know if closet is the correct word I'm not English) Today he threatened me with scissors so I shot the hand that was holding the scissors with a rubber band, he grinned at me and then started crying and ran to my dad. My dad called me and after I explained what happened he told me I still had no right to do that. Please tell me what to do, I have talked to my mom about it and she just kind of brushed it off. I am to scared of my dad to talk to him about it.

Hi! I have an 11 year old brother too. but he's afraid of me lol
he's still a huge pain though. Your brother seems to like getting away with things that are detrimental and potentially life-threatening to you. because your parents already seem like they favor/believe him over you, I would try talking to your mom one more time. I would also try for a third party to help you explain things, especially if you think confronting them with the issue would anger them.

Good Luck! I hope you get the justice that you deserve.

That's just the problem, I have tried talking to her about 10 minutes after I get into trouble with my dad and I have also tried waiting a day. I have tried talking to her multiple times. Every time she says that she will talk to my dad and brother but I don't think she does it. If she does talk to them, it changes nothing.

Hi there, Janco.

I'm really sorry to hear about your situation. While I don't have younger siblings, I have extensive experience with my older siblings that range from both verbal and physical altercations (fights). Sometimes you'll find that the youngest sibling gets the upper advantages with the parents, but that's just how it is. If this is a very serious problem that you fear for your life or it's a huge inconvenience for you and your everyday life, then I would talk to a counselor at school, teacher, principle, doctor, or any other authority figure. These people will be able to provide you with numerous tips for dealing with him, and they may even organize a sit down with your parents to have them comprehend the severity of the issue and then just maybe your parents will contribute to a solution.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
