What a brat. Maybe you should show him what a real punch feels like.
I'm a younger sibling and my parents never take my side. My sister is 2 years older than me and she always gets out of trouble by being funny. Whenever I get in trouble I can't get out of it so I just do something mean to my sister, like I spit in her room and on her one time, and that got me double grounded. A good word of advice is to video tape like #34 said.
I'm the youngest of two, and maybe we're a rare case, but my brother and I have never had physical altercations. Our parents made sure we understood the consequences of hurting one another and usually made us work out our sibling squabbles without interference unless it was needed. I feel like a little mutual respect and compassion goes a long way.
my sister and I once got into a fist fight and I got into trouble . according to my parents it's completely acceptable for her to drag me out of bed by my hair because she "felt like it" and I should refrain myself from reacting because I should know better & I'm the oldest ... :| this was years ago .
I'm the youngest and my parents never noticed my tears. My brother seriously beat the $hit out of me constantly as a kid. Phone cords, punches, body slams (him wanting to wrestle), attempting to blind me with a laser pointer, and at least one attempt to smother me (me under blankets = helpless and he put pillow over my face). My brother is about 9+ years older than me. But OP, I feel for you. My brother would get me in trouble all the time (granted when I fought back), since it seemed like a role reversal on my parents' part. When he starts that he's going to be bratty, call out to your parents precisely what he's doing, if you don't want to get in trouble for a real punch. Or get crafty with a little camera or voice recorder each time he starts with you.
I never understood the whole "you know better, act your age" arguement from parents when siblings fight that are really close in age. My brother is only a year younger than me. If I know better, then shouldn't he as well? Apparently not because i was always the one getting yelled at and punished for things while he got off easy. Even if he was the one doing every thing, Just ignore it. You know better.
Sorry to break it to you 65, but when this generation get kids we are likely to have forgotten how it was and probably take ones side at most times, maybe because we think we can trust them more or something. Though my parents have been pretty good in knowing who told the truth, it still happened that I(even though my poker face always sucked) was the one they believed over my bigger sister. But I still was the first one to blame when other things had happened. But we always got to tell our side of the stories before they did anything.
Little siblings are the biggest douche bags in the world. Just do what I do, rub something they are mildly allergic to on their pillow. And if they aren't allergic to anything, just do what #1 said.
Or instead of causing an allergic reaction, you could just piss on their pillow, or in their bed, or on their clothes. However that only works if you have pets. If you have no pets, piss in a paper cup and carefully pour it into their face lotion or face wash, shampoo, conditioner, etc. then sit back and be satisfied every time they go to shower.
@84, 9 times out of 10 it is true. My younger sibling is nearly a decade younger than I, and he is probably the biggest asshole I know due to the fact he knows how to get under my skin. However, I'm not saying older siblings are any better, but they are a different kind of evil. Although I bitch about how horrible my siblings are, in the end I know I love them to death. But that's probably because I don't have a sister. :D
