I can't cope with my sister.. - July 29th 2009, 04:07 PM

Mmkay, so my sister is only one year younger than me. Twelve. But, everytime I do so much as look at her at the wrong time, she'll start ranting at me. She basicly has temper tantrums whenever she's told she's wrong or someone disagrees with her. She's mean and rude to everyone for no reason. She doesn't have any mental health problems or anything, and she's not like that at school, in school & with her friends she's the complete opposite, it's just at home. She'll hit me for no reason and try and get me into trouble and scream, and puts everyone in a bad mood. I know everyone has disagreements with their sisters, but this is ridiculous. I feel like breaking down crying sometimes because of her. I'm even considering moving in with my Grandma for the rest of the summer break just to stay away from her. I can't take much more. I've talked about it to my parents and they tell me I'm being stupid and all sisters fight, but 95% of the time, I don't even know what I could've possibly done to make her so angry. I tell her to calm down and she'll just hit me and scream, she acts like a two year old. I don't know what to do.. advice? & My mom has enough on her plate at the moment than to deal with my sisters rage, and then once she gets in those moods, she stresses everyone out.

Hi there,

It is true that sisters fight, but it does sound like yours is being unreasonable. I could understand if you had said something or did something to upset her, but if she is acting like this just from looking at her the wrong way, then that is something different.

I think that you really need to talk to your parents about this. I know that you have tried already, and that they are stressed from work, but maybe catch them at a good time on the weekend and just bring up your concerns. Give them certain situations in which your sister started acting this way and let them know that you are worried that something is wrong. Ask for their advice and see if they can talk to her.

Could it be that your sister is getting so angry at you because she is jealous? Maybe she thinks that you have more opportunities than her or are luckier because you are older. Sometimes a jealousy like that is hard to deal with and can get in the way of a relationship with your family.

If you catch your sister at a good moment, do your best to have a heart to heart talk with her. Ask her if there is something wrong that you could help her with and let her know that you are there for her if she ever wants to talk. It could be that she is holding something back, and that is why she is starting a conflict.

If she keeps it up even after you talk to your parents and your sister, then I suggest you do your very best to ignore her. I know how difficult it is, but really it's the best thing you can do. She may be looking for a reaction from you, and if you don't give her one, then she may stop.

I hope that everything goes well for you. If you want to talk sometime, feel free to message me at any time.

Everyone has a story. What's yours?

a thing i'ver heard is always good, is to not let her get to you, pretend that your not bothered by her, dont get angery back. she might feed off your anger?
