My sister... - November 9th 2011, 06:40 PM

I wasn't sure where to put this so I put it in family. Anyways, my sister has been noticing how much time I spend on TeenHelp and she just looked at me, literally ten minutes ago, and said that she wanted an account like me. What do I do? Should I let her? Would you let your sibling?

Well, the first thing I would ask is how old is your sister? Is she old enough to handle the content that is discussed on TH and is she old enough to understand cyber-safety etc.?

If the answer is yes, then I see no reason why she shouldn't have an account. If it is an issue of whether you feel comfortable with her seeing what you have written, then you could explain that you don't want her to know what your username is. Personally, I've told only my boyfriend and one close friend what my username is on here. I came to TH because I needed to get things off my chest that I couldn't share with most people in my "real" life, so I would completely understand why you wouldn't want your sister to know your identity here. However, if she feels that she wants or needs to be on TH, then I think letting her have an account would be a great thing for her.

Sorry I forgot to mention that she's 15 but she's autistic and has learning disabilities where her mentality is like an 8 year old. I mean, I think she could handle being on the site and seeing the "mature" content that's here it's just a matter of her seeing my posts and figuring out who I am and mentioning it to someone else. I think if I talk to her she'd keep quiet if she did find out who I was but it's still nerve wracking, y'know?

Hmmm, this is a tough call. I would talk to her prior to her making an account. Be honest with her. Tell her that you help people on this site with various issues, and sometimes we give you advice. Fortunately you have the staff forums that are private to her and open to you. There is also all those features on TH that I won't mention because you're staff and should already know about them But any how, I think it'd be fine to let her make an account. But it's up to you

That's a valid point. If she brings it up again, I'll let her make an account. She probably won't spend as much time as I do seeing as I'm always on the computer.
