My name is Alexis and I am 12 years old. My cousin has a learning disorder and gets mad really easily and he takes it out on me. He can hit, pinch, kick, and even bite! But I sometimes do something back to him and he runs crying and I get in trouble. And when I try to tell my Aunt that he hurt me also she doesn’t even care about my feelings. I hate it!

Do you have any advice that might make my life run more smoothly? Also do you have advice that might make my Aunt start listening to me?


Wow. You do have a problem. And, I am afraid that you will not be able to explain to your aunt what her child is doing. Discuss your problems with your parents. Help them understand what you are dealing with. Ask them to observe. Your aunt’s brother or sister (one of your parents) might be listened to before they listen to you. Good luck.
