Re: Should i raise my teenage sister and give her a chance
I am a mother of one living with my partner. my oarents divorced and my mum nowe has moved far away and I am no longer in touch with my dad. My brother has been living with me since he was 16. Although we have had problems in the past - you have to understand that their attitude and the things that they get up to are part of growing up and also in some way part of letting go of some anger that they hold for what has happened to them.
All you can do is talk to her on a level without trying to patronise her and when she grows up, like my brother they realise how much you do for them and I love my brother being with us now.
and lets face it it probably gives us a bit of experience on dealing with our own kids when they are teenagers!!!!
