Advice Q&A
Dear IML,
I think my brother's becoming a bully! I've already talked to my dad, but he's not doing anything. My brother's 4. He says things like, "If you don't do what I want, I wont let you do something you like to do." He's only 4, so he can't do any damage, it's his attitude I'm worried about. Please tell me what to do.
--Shivani, 10

Dear Shivani,
It sounds like youre pretty worried about your little brother and that you want to be the best big sister you can be. First, keep in mind that its normal for younger children to be bossy sometimes. Your brother is still learning about himself and how to get along with other people. Four-year-olds think a lot about themselves and not as much about other people. But as they get older, they usually begin to think about how other people feel.

Something you can do to help is to be a good role model to your brother by showing him how to be kind to others and share. You can also let him know that you dont like playing with him when hes being a bully and if its upsetting, you can walk away when hes behaving that way. You can give him lots of encouragement (hugs, kisses, cheers) when you see him sharing or being kind --this will help him feel good about himself when hes nice to others. Good luck!
