Dear Ainsley: My younger brother is just plain rude. What should I do? — Annoyed in Fifth Grade
Dear Annoyed: I think you should just ignore him. If you do that he will eventually get bored and leave you alone.
Are you having problems with a brother or a sister? Are you, yourself, a problem child and need advice? Do you want to share a tip or trick you’ve picked up to make having a brother or sister more bearable? Or hey, do you have a story to share about how wonderful it can be to have a brother or sister?
