Dear Dish-It, I Don't Want to Share a Room With My Sister!

Dish-It serves up advice about sibling rivalry.
Sibling Rivalry Advice

Dear Dish-It,

I hate having to share a room with my sister - I am going crazy. I've asked my parents if I can get this little space we have and they said no. My clothes are all over the place because there is no space in the closet for me, so my clothes are just on the floor. My sister throws my clothes everywhere cuz she doesn't want it in the closet. I don't have space to put any of my things because she has so much stuff! What should I do?

Darkmaster

P.S. My sister is 16 and I am 12.

Dear Darkmaster,

Sharing a room with a sibling is rarely fun - especially once you've both started high school and are leading completely separate lives. It's possible that your parents don't realize how bad this arrangement is for you. I'm sure it's not a lot of fun for your 16 year-old sister to share a room with her 12 year-old brother either, so why not call a truce with her just long enough to band together to get what you want? By teaming up and going to your parents together, maybe they'll re-evaluate their decision on you taking over the extra space in the house. If for some reason they still object to this move, try appealing to them to at least get your own dresser or wardrobe so you have somewhere to keep all your clothes and possessions separate from you sister's. Although things kind of suck right now, in a few years time, when your sister ships off to college, you'll be rewarded with a bedroom all of your own. So stay positive and good luck with the 'rents!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    I think its really great you posted this, cause a lot of people need it. Adults don't notice children problems. When I was in 2ed grade i was bullied by teens that were like 16. Not only that, teachers can bully kids too. My mom always puts people who try to kill them selves down in awful ways. Every time she says that stuff I am very offended by it cause she knows I have emotional problems but she still like to dig into it. Someone who feels they need to kill themselves needs someone to trust and talk to. I'm so happy you posted this. Cause it is so true!
