My little brother and I were always close, but since I went away to college and only see my family on weekends and vacations things have changed. I tried to talk to him about this but he told me I was just being stupid.
My mother says he is just being a teenager and he is like this with everyone, but it makes me so sad.
Queenie, what can I do about this?—Sad big brother
Dear Big brother,
Your brother is growing up and his behaviour is part of that process, Also, he may feel abandoned because you left him and went away to college.
Accept his behaviour for now. Things should get better as he grows older.
