My step-brother brother has schizophrenia and little to no support system and i wish i could understand it better to help him. Please help.

I have a step brother whose 25 (im 23), He has schizophrenia. As far as ive noticed almost any of his thoughts they seem to be paranoia about being stolen from. He will here music and flip out because Pink Floyd or whoever stole his song and recorded it or hes convinced someone who owed him money 10 years ago needs to pay it back.

He has a history of extreme violence though he never gets there with me (i have experience de-escelating aggression in others). His only support outside of me is his dad (his mom and my dad ran off years ago) but his dad has to kick him out weekly because of being drunk or making threats (he tried to kill him with a chainsaw once so he understandably prioritizes the safety of his own household. His friends are the local homeless population and drug addicts (nothing against addicts, just dont want my schizophrenic brother doing more drugs). He himself, is hooked on percoset, zopiclone, coke and alcohol. Ive gotten him "clean" multiple times (most recently after a bad OD). When he is "clean" he stays at his dads house/works on the farm and hangs out with me to chat about once or twice a week. Eventually though he has one to many beer and gets drunk, then he does other stupid shit (threats, belligerence) and his dad tosses him out. He'll usually text me a "whats up?" when this happens but im often busy and if i dont get to him the day he gets kicked out he goes on a binger until he eventually makes his way to my place and crashes one night and i get him to agree to go make up with his dad the next morning, rinse and repeat.

I try and get him out hiking and doing stuff outdoors when hes with me and i only let him have a few beers if im with him and monitoring how its affecting him and were being active. I warn against him getting drunk and limit it as much as i can (he refuses to not have some casual crutch and i cant really control a grown man). I dont let him do drugs around me (Ive even threatened local dealers to get them away from him but theres always more) Ive convince him to quit before but eventually the voices get to him and hes back at it. He doesnt talk about his schizophrenia (beyond confirming its a hard thing he has to deal with). Hes also had horrible experiences with therapy as our city has an asylum and his mom used to put him in their forcibly for 2-8 months and then leave the country and forget about him (seriously, shes a trash human being) then since he doesnt want to be in there the second they arent able

AITA for buying my best friend a switch and not my step brother

I (M17) have divorced parents. My mom remarried when i was 14 and my step brother was 13. My grandma (on my dads side) passed away 2 years ago and my dad told me she left me money. I didn’t get to visit her much so i was incredibly sad and didn’t want to use any of the money she left me.

With holidays around and me being flat broke i asked my dad for access to the money and he told me he’s been adding into it so it was enough for me to buy gifts and keep the rest for whatever i wanted to save for. So i used it to buy Christmas gifts for my family and to buy a switch for my best friend because his family isn’t very wealthy and i knew it was something he really wanted. I wasn’t able to give it to him on Christmas so i asked him if he could come over after.

A few days ago my step brother was snooping in my things and i guess he thought it was for him. He told my mom and his dad that i had gotten him a switch. Today, my friend came over and i gave him the switch and he was so happy. My mom said i was sweet for giving him and my brother a switch and i kinda went wtf?

She told my my step brother told her that i got him one but i didn’t. So i told her i didnt get him one and it was for my friend. She said i shouldn’t have gotten his hopes up and he was looking forward to having one. I said it wasn’t my fault he looked through my stuff and i wasn’t going to take away the only Christmas gift my friend got just because my step brother thought it was his.

My step brother is upset over the whole thing and my mom thinks i should’ve gotten it for my brother and not my friend. AITA?

AITA for not giving back a guitar I bought from my step-brother

My (50F) step-mother bought her son (now 30m) a guitar for his 18th birthday. It's a really nice Fender.

He lost interest in the guitar and about 5 years ago he decided to pawn it. I offered to buy it from him.

My dad divorced my step-mom recently and now she wants the guitar back. Her argument is she paid for the guitar so it's technically her guitar.

She also feels she doesn't need to give back the money I paid for the guitar because she helped support me and my sister when we still lived in the house with them

AITA here?

Edit: [UPDATE] She has now threatened to go to the police if I don’t give her the guitar back by the end of the day.

“Your step brothers get first pick of your bio dad’s things. You can have what they don’t want”

My mom’s step mom was a piece of work. My moms parents divorced when she was 1 and both her bio parents remarried. Her step dad is the sweetest man and he has always treated my mom like his own child. Her step mom is another story. My mom is her dads only biological child, he has a few step sons from his second marriage to this entitled parent, my step grandma. She showed clear favoritism for her biological grandkids and would openly treat her bio children/grandchildren much better than my mom and my siblings and me. My moms dad died in March of 2008, I was almost 11 and my sister was about 7. We were obviously all devastated especially because it was super sudden- a random heart attack when he was only in his 50s. Since it was so sudden and he didn’t have a ton of assets or anything, there wasn’t a will and everything was up to his wife to disperse. You see where this is going. So even though my mom was his only biological child, she was only able to get what her step brothers didn’t want. My sister and I, despite being his only biological grandchildren, each got a watch; that’s it. My mom had to BUY the items she wanted of her father off her step brothers, only one of them would just let her have the keepsakes she wanted. Although it doesn’t entirely matter, my mom didn’t want anything extravagant either. Her dad was an avid nascar fan and had cases of collectible cars. That’s all she wanted. They were his pride and joy and she just wanted to keep them. I understand that the boys lost their step dad and they were heartbroken too, but the fact that they were unwilling to have a discussion about all of it like adults and instead made her purchase them says all you need to know about their character. She also couldn’t live with herself knowing that they probably would’ve auctioned off the cars for beer money. Moms side is a classy bunch. After the funeral things were understandably strained between my mom and her step mom. That’s when my sister and I stopped hearing from our step grandma and no longer got calls on our birthdays or cards at Christmas. We only saw her twice after the funeral and both times she cut the visits short to go see her new boyfriend. She died in 2015 and we came up with an excuse not to go to the funeral. It’s been almost 13 years and my sister and I both have the watches, and we tell our 9 year old brother about the adventures we had with our grandpa he never got to meet. And my mom keeps those cars and cases spotless.

AITA for continuing to include brother’s ex step-son in my family’s stuff?

To start off my brother “Brad” and I don’t see eachother too often so we’re not that close.

5 years ago he married a single mom who had a 9 year old son, “Michael.” It was a surprise because he was always so dead set on being kids free.

First time we met his family, it was obvious he didn’t have a change of heart about kids when I noticed how he wouldn’t interact with Michael at all and practically ignored his existence.

A year into the marriage, Brad sometimes vented to me about how annoying it is having Michael around 24/7, which didn’t feel right to me. There was some back and forth arguing between us about why he would marry someone with a kid if he hates kids when all it’s doing is making him miserable and hurting an innocent child who’s not at fault.

One time Brad asked me if I could take Michael with me and my sons on a camping trip we were going on for the weekend because he absolutely “needed” this free time.

I agreed and we all ended up having a great time. Michael’s a shy and timid kid but once we were out there he let himself open up. He’s really sweet and kind. Couldn’t believe this is the kid my brother constantly complained about like if he was such a chore.

I basically became the weekend babysitter sometimes, which I had no problem with. Michael and my sons loved hanging out and we did lots of activities together.

Last year when he and his ex divorced, I was worried about not being able to see Michael again. Of course after years we considered him family and didn’t want to cut that off. I spoke with Brad’s ex wife and she was more than fine with Michael coming over every now and then to hangout with my sons.

Michael was very happy to continue joining us for our outings and even asked his mom if he could spend thanksgiving with my family this year (just myself, my boys, and my wife). We video chatted with my parents during this and they were surprised to see Michael there but didn’t comment since he was present.

They obviously told Brad about it because he called me to complain about “siding with his ex” and it’s weird still letting Michael around my family when he isn’t legally family anymore. He said the divorce was hard enough already without me still including his ex wife’s kid in my family stuff.

I honestly couldn’t believe he was acting this way and said he’s being completely ridiculous. He still thinks I’m somehow being a traitor for this. I’ve asked my other brother and parents to weigh in on this but they also fee

AITA for not wanting to get on a ride with my step-family because of a promise I made to my brother?

Okay so I know this promise probably won’t seem like a big deal but it is to me in a way.

I’m 16,m and years ago when I was 8, I went to Santa Monica pier for the first time with my mom and my half brother Tony (17 at the time). Back then I was too scared of getting on the rollercoaster and said I didn’t want to. We got on some of the other rides but the only one I was scared of was that one.

So Tony said they won’t make me get on if I don’t want to but I have to promise him that when I’m ready to get on this rollercoaster for the first time, it has to be with him and we have to be in the front.

I promised him we will but the problem was we didn’t get to go back again after that. Then my brother was in an accident 3 yrs ago and he died.

It still hurts sometimes and I miss him a lot. Tbh I never thought about the pier until last year. I stay with my dad sometimes on weekends with his family and last February he took us on a surprise trip to the pier.

That was my 2nd time going there ever and it made me sad all over again. My dad didn’t know we came here with Tony btw so he didn’t know it would make me think about him. My dad’s wife’s kids wanted to get on the rides and I remembered my promise to Tony.

So when they all went to get in line for the rollercoaster I told my dad I didn’t want to get on. I told him why and he said there’s no point an Tony wouldn’t care if I got on without him. But it didn’t feel right to me and I said I didn’t want to. My dad started getting frustrated with me and said to not make a big deal about it when its just a rollercoaster ride.

Him and his wife tried to make me but I said no so they left me to wait for them. They were serious the rest of the time and when we got home my dad told me if it was worth ruining the family day when the whole point was for everyone to bond an have fun.

And I know he has a point. He wanted us all together that day so I could be closer to his new family. But I really wanted to hold on to my promise. Yeah I know Tony isn’t here anymore and I can’t ever ride the rollercoaster with him but I didn’t feel ready to do it yet.

It’s almost gonna be a year since it happened but I bring it up cause my dad wants us to go back again when covid calms down and tells me this time not repeat what I did. Again I don’t think I’ll want to get on.

Was I TA for ruining the family outing and not wanting to break a promise yet?

I predicted my step-brother's death and he is haunting my family.

Here is some context: Back in June, my step-brother passed away while on assignment with the Air Force. He was only 21 and a few weeks away from 22. He wasn't sick or anything and we still don't know much about his death.

My experiences: Ever since the first day he joined he left for boot camp was when the dreams of his death started, they weren't common until I got a job at a restaurant he used to work and about 3 months before his death. I quit the job in April and the dreams stopped until June 2nd and on June 3rd. Since then I don't have any dreams any more, I just fall asleep and just wake up. Now the dreams were pretty different except for one detail I always learned about his death on the news. Now on the morning of June 3rd I was on Reddit I was scrolling through my page there was a post about an Airman found dead in his room, I felt like I knew it was him but the post did give any names so I shrugged it off until my mom called to share the news. It was him. Now all of my dreams always shared the fact I learn it from a news source followed by my mom calling me. I haven't had a single dream since until last week where I am dreaming about my cousin dying.

My family: My mom has always been a believer of an afterlife and spirits, she swore she saw angles and spirits physically watching over me when I was in the ER serval times. It all started 3 weeks after he died we were having issues bringing his body back due to the fact he was overseas and the government was in COVID lockdown and they couldn't send a corner to check his body. My mom was woken up at around 3 am to loud knocking from her room, something that never happens in our house that is less than 10 years old, and she looks and sees her phone is ringing on silent. It's the Air Force saying they are sending him home despite the local government saying no, and his autopsy is going to take place in the same hospital where my stepdad was born. After she hung up the phone she asked "(stepbrother's name) was that you?" and one soft but the noticeable knock was heard from right behind her. She wasn't the only one hearing knocking, on the week of the funeral we had family come and stay with us and every family member who stayed the night at that house heard some form of knocking near their beds. On top of that my mom and stepdad would keep hearing my stepbrother's old room door slam and drums playing (his favourite instrument to play) even though the drums are in a storage unit. I sin

WIBTA if I tell my dad I can't stand living at his house anymore because of my step-brother?

This is messy but hear me out. All names are fake obvi.

I'm 16f, I live with my dad full time. Have since I was 13. Used to be 50/50 with my mom before she had to move a state away for work. I (used to) get along better at my dad's house than at mom's so I stayed with him when mom moved. Then dad got remarried almost 2 years ago and his new wife and her son (also 16) moved in with us. Which would have been awkward no matter what but the thing is I KNEW my now step-brother (Mike) before this.

He's had a huge crush on me since we were both starting middle school. I'm not saying this arrogantly or whatever, everyone knew it cuz he was so blatant about it. He'd always buy me snacks and drinks, pay for my lunch before I could, get me flowers/candy/teddies on Valentine's day, and ask me out a lot. I always turned him down though. I wasn't interested in dating anyone. He'd sulk for a day then bounce back to his old behavior, like if he plied me with enough gifts and 'nice' behavior I'd break and date him. Well we're in high school now and my feelings haven't changed.

My problem. Mike was REALLY excited that we'd be living together after our parents got married when we were both 14. His pushy attitude kept up and he kept trying to get me to 'hang out cuz we're family now' with him. But everything he wanted to do was date stuff where we'd be totally alone. I kept telling him no and finally I told him we're SIBLINGS NOW after catching him talking to his online friends that we were 'basically dating'. I said he was being gross trying to ask his step-sister on dates.

After that he sorta chilled out with the crush thing and stuff was livable. THEN that STUPID fucking "what are you doing step-bro" meme came out and he just LATCHED ONTO IT like it was the best thing ever. He showed me and laughed like it was hilarious, even though I thought it was pretty weird. Then he'd asked me to only call him 'step-bro' and he wouldn't call me anything but 'step-sis' and was creepily flirty and suggestive when our parents weren't home. Then we were all stuck home together for corona and it was alright cuz dad and Abby (step-mom) were home too so he couldn't be super weird.

Then dad had to go back to work like normal and Abby works from home but she's in her office all day so now I'm stuck locked in my room if I want any peace. And like I'm just DONE by now with Mike. I'm not happy living here anymore. I feel like he's taken this weird meme as like a secret green light from eve

My (25F) step brother (20M) got his girlfriend (19F) pregnant and I’m angry about it

I know the title is weird but I’m trying to abide by the rules as much as possible because I really do need advice. Sorry about formatting - I’m mobile. False names have been given.

3 years ago, something happened between my stepbrother (17M - name: Greg) and my biological sister (15F - name: Tara) from age 6-15. I called the police and had an onslaught of hate from my step family and his friends. Since he was still a minor and had to live with our parents for court dates and shit, I was awarded custody of Tara and we moved out.

3 years pass, Tara and I moved out of state and even the country for a little bit. COVID has pushed us back home. When we get home, Tara gives the OK for greg to be at family events with us this year. I don’t talk nor engage with him whatsoever. I don’t need to and everyone on my side of the family respects that. It’s out of respect for my sister and how she wants me to react. Frankly I don’t understand why he’s still allowed to be in our family however it’s important to note we are an affluent family so my guess is my father doesn’t want the inevitable drama and backlash from this. I saw him for the first time in YEARS and surprise surprise he has a new gf (Jamie 19F)

I asked my mum if she knew? she said that Jamie had no clue about his past. Naturally I got angry because she has the right to know. Everyone in my house (step dads family) at this point told me not to say anything. They pleaded with me not to. They say It’s his “business” to tell her. I basically got angry and didn’t speak to anyone for months. Thanksgiving rolls around and Jamie tells all of us she’s pregnant. For gods sake she’s giving birth and having a fucking CHILD around him.

I don’t even know what to do? I’m positive the right thing to do is say something so she can take steps to protect that child but on the other hand, everyone is telling me that he’s “changed” (despite not going to therapy or doing anything like that.) They’re circling the “you have no right to say anything. You already ruined his life once. He’s changed!!”

I’m at a complete loss. If I do it - I start another fight with my family that won’t be repairable, and if I don’t? the mother is unaware of the dangers their child could be put in. I just don’t want to be the reason that child has a messed up life. What do I do? How can I best say what needs to be said? Is there a way I can do this without risking my familial relationship? Is there a way I can stop feeling guilty and pressu

AITA for telling my brother and step sister to eat the food I had made or starve?

So background. I 17M have had to take over cooking for my stepmom while she has had severe allergies for the past 2 weeks. She literally cannot go 5 minutes without coughing up a storm and thus cannot cook. I live with my stepmom, stepsister and my brother was at the house on visitation. My dad was at the hospital when this happened.

I had made Salisbury steak with mushroom and onion gravy, mashed potatoes and green beans. I had asked both stepsister 14F and brother 15M if they would eat it an hour before I started. They both said yes.

So I made the food. When I called them over to get their plates they immediately asked if there was anything else. I told them no and that I had asked them earlier if they would eat it and they said yes. They said they had changed their mind.

I told them that I would not spend another hour or 2 thawing meat and cooking entirely different dishes just because they changed their mind. I then said that they could either eat the food I had made or starve. I then took stepmom her plate. They followed me into her room and began complaining to her. Their argument was that since I take culinary arts I could make different dishes. She sided with me and scolded them for being picky. They later tried complaining to my dad when he got home and he said that the same thing as stepmom.

They later complained to their friends and I am getting flak for being cruel to them. So reddit AITA?

I (16f) don't want to live with my dad/step family anymore because my step-brother (16m) has been perving on me and I feel uncomfortable. I still don't know what to do/say.

I wasn't sure whether to post my story/question here or at 'am-i the b-hole', I ended up going there but they said my problem was too big for that sub and to come here. So here I am. Okay uh, backstory I guess.

Uh I met "Mike" when we both started middle school. He's had a crush on me since I could remember and didn't try to hide it. It was a running joke with friends/classmates that he was 'in love' with me because he would constantly buy me snacks/drinks, pay for my lunch before I could, give me tons of gifts on Valentine's Day like stuffed animals and flowers, and generally take any chance he could to be close to me. He'd regularly ask me out at least once every week or so. It made me uncomfortable but I just kept politely telling him no, I wasn't interested in dating him or any other guys. (i found out that was because i'm a lesbian).

Well some time before I was 14 my dad told me he'd been seeing a nice lady for a while and they'd hit it off and were going to be getting married. This was pretty shocking (the marriage part, not the dating part. my dad's not super subtle) but I was happy for him, he'd been pretty down since he and mom separated when I was 10. I'd been living with both mom and dad 50/50 until my last years of elementary school when mom had to move for work. I got along better with dad so I stayed with him so I wouldn't have to move. I still see mom every summer tho.

So before I'd turned 14 dad's fiancé (Abby) moved into our house with her son. Her son MIKE. Dad said she had a kid my age but he'd never said it was Mike and now he and I were forced to live together. Mike was beyond happy that we lived together and took every chance to be around me constantly, the only place I'm safe from him is my bedroom because there's a lock. He constantly wanted to 'hang out as new step-siblings' but everything he wanted to do was date/couple stuff. Going to the movies, getting food alone, studying alone, etc. It was mentally exhausting being around him almost 24 hours a day. And whenever I'd refuse to sit by him, or 'hang out' with him, or play nice with him his mom would gripe to my dad that I was being argumentative and rude.

This led to my dad talking to me like the problem was with me. He'd tell me blended families were tough to navigate but me being difficult wasn't making things easier. He said if Mike was willing to try to build a bond then I should be too. Then I'd be forced to sit by Mike while we watched movies together as a 'family'

My [M24] mom [F50] doesn't want my step brother [M20] in the house at all and it's causing major friction

I live at home with her and my stepdad. Great dude, solid relationship, no real issues here. His daughter is a delight, super fun to be around. His son is depressed and anxious, has panic attacks, but mostly he's just not a nice person even taking his illness into account.

He stays up till 4am playing PS4, and will sometimes just be up through the night and sleep all day. He's very loud when he plays, and always wakes us up (big house too so he really is loud). He never says please or thank you, hardly talks to us and can't make eye contact. He never has shoes or socks on and will put his feet up on everything. He doesn't shower too.

His room here is disgusting, when he leaves my mom and I clean it and he even hides wrappers under and around his bed. We put a bin next to him and he still does this. His diet is awful too but that's another story.

He burnt a pizza once leaving it in for an hour or so and we smelt smoke, but he for some reason didn't. He also set the house alarm off once and just went back upstairs to his room, in the middle of the night. We ran down and he was just chilling as though nothing happened.

He's not mentally challenged, he's educated enough and relatively smart. But I hate him because his dad is amazing and he has no idea, and he makes life hell for my mom when he's here. We try so hard with him and he does what therapy he can handle but his mom doesn't want him doing too much or taking pills (she's not a well person).

His dad's in a tricky position because he wants to be nice (hardly gets to see them, their mom isn't very well and is quite mentally messed up which is where he gets it from) so while the almost adult kid needs boundaries he understandably can't be the one to do it.

Ultimately, my mom doesn't want him here and me neither to be honest. She's even said if he comes here she'll move out for a bit. The reason he comes is when his own mom has had enough of him and asks us to take him.

The question is what do we do? Is my mom right to say this, can she demand him not to come. I back my mom 100% but I'm super close to my own dad so I understand that side of things and my step dad is an amazing dude.

Tl;dr mom doesn't want stepbrother in the house and it's a difficult decision for my stepdad.

Edit: it's my mom's house by about 70%

Step brother [16M] came to my [16F] room at night and cut my hair with scissors. I moved out and parents want me back with him still there.

Step brother of 6 months. My mom married his dad.

So a few weeks ago in a morning I noticed my stuff in my room had moved. I told my brother (big bio brother, 23) and he didn’t take me seriously but taught me how to record my room at nights with my phone. I’ve been recording myself every night and nothing happened, so I was ready to believe that nothing had happened that night.

This weekend however, step brother came into my room at about 3:15am. He came to me with scissors, cut a small piece of my hair and left my room. It was so weird and shocking. It was a very small amount, something I likely wouldn’t have noticed. I sent the video to my siblings (brother and bio sister, 19). They told me to pack a bag immediately and picked me up and took me with them. They sent the video to parents.

Parents questioned step brother and he says he doesn’t remember doing it at all and said he was likely sleep walking and asked to see a doctor. I don’t believe him and neither do my siblings.

Parents want to solve this problem by taking both of us to family therapy. They want me to come home and discuss this (all four of us). They say I’m not in any real danger, as he didn’t hurt me or do anything inappropriate or sexual. My siblings strongly disagree and say what he did was very inappropriate and they’re not going to let me go back there as long as step brother still lives there. Parents say they will install a lock on my door so that I can lock myself in at nights.

Step father is upset at my siblings and claims they’ve turned this into a much larger issue than it is, he says they could have just parented the problem away by punishing and it’s not a big deal.

Honestly I keep hearing everyone with strong opinions about this and I don’t know who’s right or wrong. What should I do? Do I go back? Do I just never go back? My best friend says I should just go to the police and press charges against step brother.

tldr: Step brother snuck into my room at night and cut a small piece of my hair with scissors. I’m now staying with siblings and parents want me back, siblings want me to stay and I don’t know what to do.

Why does my step-dad treat me so differently than my step-sister and half-brother?

My (F17) mom (F38) married my step-dad (M36) this year after four years of dating. He has a daughter (F9) and together, they conceived my half-brother (M2).

I treat and love all of my siblings equally, but I feel there’s a gap between us. That they are being treated differently than I am.

My sister gets away with anything. She never gets punished. She is able to be disrespectful towards me and everyone else in the household. She tells her dad to ‘shut up’ whenever she is upset. She has destroyed my objects in a fit of rage, screamed/cried on the floor, slammed doors in my face, screamed at me, etc.

She has also disobeyed household rules and refused to do chores. For example, she is able to stay past 1:00 am on a school night. Her father will tell her that she is grounded and takes away her phone, but she immediately disobeys him and he allows her to do it. He threatens there will be consequences and doesn’t go through with it.

But when I do something he doesn’t like, and it’ll be minor, he loses his mind and scolds me. Tonight, I was teaching my brother to throw away his trash and he scolded me for it. Telling me he’s too young and to stop acting like a parent. That it is his job and I’m disrespecting him. All because I was teaching my brother how to pick up after himself. I’ve already taught my brother his numbers (1-20), the ABCs, manners, etc. I thought he would be happy that his child was learning much information, but I don’t know anymore.

I’ve been told that because of my behavior from above, along with helping my sister with her homework and chores, that I am acting like a third parent and need to stop. When I have, my sister has stopped doing her homework and neglected her chores, and angers him more.

My mom told him that she doesn’t like how my sister is behaving and how it feels like he’s treating he differently than me, but he told my mom that she was acting like an ‘evil-step mother’ and my mom completely stopped trying to reason with him about me feeling neglected.

I don’t know what I’m don’t so wrong. Am I being treated or just being overly dramatic? I don’t know why I’m such as horrible person. I just know I am.

EDIT: When my sister was arguing with me about eating her breakfast, proceeding to slam doors and roll her eyes at me. I told her and I quote: “I feel disrespected and hurt when you act like this to me.” She said it’s okay for her to treat me like this because I’m not her parents. So she fully knows that her behavior is

I have to hide my chocolate milk (and possibly other snacks) so my step-brother’s kids see them.

Edit in title: Don’t.

Just a small rant, I guess. I am out of town and staying with my ‘rents for the holidays.

Step-brother and his family are coming up for a while tomorrow and I have to hide my goodies because GOD FORBID the kids are told something like, “No, that isn’t ours. Here, have this instead!” if they ask for some chocolate milk.

Maybe I’m being selfish but I don’t have much money to spend and so am hesitant to share. There two kids and then, if someone else wants some, I can’t refuse them and share with the other 2. On top of that, kids often waste food and drink, so it’d peeve me off if they took more than they wanted or could handle and then dumped out the rest anyway.

Am I an asshole? LOL!

Gay step brother (21) reached out to me and I (28) don't know what do

My parents are separated for more than 25 years. My father discarded me and my mother to have a "proper" marriage (church, legal papers the whole standard show). Me and my father had had minimal contact. When he found out I was gay he said to not reach out him ever again. I don't need his money or attention anyway. 8 years later with literally no contact from him, my step mother, half siblings reach out to me wanting to have me as brother. I gathered with them, we talked a lot and my father was nothing but a piece of meat standing there. I don't have the energy feel anything towards him.

But my half brother told me in particular that he is also gay and was suffering and my father was beating him wanting to know if he's gay and needed someone to talk. Since I have a little more experience in being gay, I gave him the standard advises about condom, get tested, not meeting with whatever stranger you find out because it might go wrong, to get a job then move out when he can etc.

But now that we're talking, he casually mentions in his texts how my father is going out to buy gifts for them and I felt weird. I have this feeling of loss. Not that I care about gifts, I can buy my own fucking gifts but more like I have no value as a son. It's not about him as a person but more the father figure I didn't get to have in my life. I had to figure out the male stuff all on my own.

Now I'm not sure if it's worth keeping contact with my half siblings. I don't need this kind of energy and I need advice.

My(39M) brother(37M) and I have not spoken for years after a fight. Last weekend, he was in a bad car accident. His husband and kids need help right now and I'm the only family he has that can step up. How can I reenter their lives?

My brother and I have not been on speaking terms for around a decade, but on Sunday a car jumped a red light at a highway intersection and he was in a terrible accident. He has four kids and was the stay-at-home parent while his husband works outside the house. His husband was able to get this week PTO, but not next week.

My wife and I both work remote which means we can work from anywhere. Given that his kids have already gone through a terrible upheaval this week, we figured it would be best to let them stay in their home, and we could pack ourselves and our toddler up and watch them at their house in the event that my brother-in-law had to return to work. Even if he somehow doesnt have to be in-office come Monday, I want to help. Even just grocery shopping or minding the kids so his husband can breathe.

I have an in. My wife and his husband actually enjoy each other and occasionally text pictures and updates of the kids (somehow, independent of each other, my brother and I managed to marry two very similar people -- nature/nurture be damned.)

Our separation isnt so bad or so dramatic that we dont go to events where we know the other will be, but when we are in the same room, we barely make eye contact. His kids know me as their uncle, and my son can runs to him when he sees him. We all agree that it is unfair to keep the kids from knowing their cousins. He and I just dont speak other than necessities.

He's still hurt and mad at things in our past. Up until this, I was too. To tell the story quickly, we came from a lovely, broken family where mutual drinking lead to a messy divorce. He and I each became the favorite of a different parent. Our parents constantly smeared the other, and, as we got older, started to smear the other's favorite child as well. It came to a head when my mother refused to help me when I became briefly homeless. I took my anger out on my brother and said things I shouldnt have and we've been cold to each other ever since.

If I had randomly texted him Saturday morning and asked to come over, he probably would have found a way to say no or would have ignored me. But I feel like the paradigm has shifted away from that. New field, new rules. His husband isnt even allowed to see him because the hospital has been shut to visitors because of Covid. I wouldnt be able to singlehandedly hold the fort down with four heartbroken kids if our places were switched.

My wife and his husband tried to bring us back togeth

AITA for grounding my daughter for being inappropriate to her step brother?

To start off my ex wife and I split up when my daughter was about 4 years old. It was an amicable decision and my and I are still friends. We have dinners together with our daughter at least once every couple of months since the divorce. My daughter loves these times and we get to talk about boring coparenting stuff when we finish dinner and our daughter is out of earshot.

I met my current wife when my daughter was 10, and she had a 13 year old son. They got along but she always seemed to want to hang out with him more than he wanted to be with her. I didn’t think anything of it, just figured she thought he was cool and looked up to him. She used to beg for the two of them to have sleepovers in the livingroom and things. My step son has never complained to me about this.

My daughter is now 12 and my step son is 15. And we live a pretty boring life together. But last week i heard my daughter scream crying from her brothers room. I went to investigate and he was standing there fists clenched and red in the face. My daughter was laying on the ground, sobbing and hyperventilating.

Immediately I separated the two, and i started by talking to my daughter. She told me that her stepbrother said he hated her and doesn’t ever want her to talk to him again and then pushed her to where i found her.

I went to my stepson after talking to my daughter and confronted him. He admitted to the words but not the shoving. And he told me something that really freaked me out. He had just taken a shower and had come out from the bathroom To his room but apparently he didn’t hear the door latch closed.

When he had finished getting dressed and turned to leave he saw that the door was cracked and my daughter was on the other side. Thats when he flipped out on her and told her to leave her alone and not to ever talk to him. I honestly didn’t know what to think.

I went back to my daughter and after a bit of prodding she confessed and said she was curious and seemed really embarrassed. I got really upset and told her what an invasion of privacy that was and how would she like it if she found someone looking at her change the way he found her.i told her i was going to away her laptop and her phone. She freaked out.

She called my ex before i knew it and when she handed me the phone my ex was on speaker scolding me for something so trivial. That every preteen/teenager gets curious sometimes. I told her it didn’t matter, her curiousity shouldn’t impede my step sons safety in my

I (16f) don't want to live with my dad/step family anymore because my step-brother (16m) has been perving on me and I feel uncomfortable. I still don't know what to do/say.

OP: u/ThrowRA-Messiness

I wasn't sure whether to post my story/question here or at 'am-i the b-hole', I ended up going there but they said my problem was too big for that sub and to come here. So here I am. Okay uh, backstory I guess.

Uh I met "Mike" when we both started middle school. He's had a crush on me since I could remember and didn't try to hide it. It was a running joke with friends/classmates that he was 'in love' with me because he would constantly buy me snacks/drinks, pay for my lunch before I could, give me tons of gifts on Valentine's Day like stuffed animals and flowers, and generally take any chance he could to be close to me. He'd regularly ask me out at least once every week or so. It made me uncomfortable but I just kept politely telling him no, I wasn't interested in dating him or any other guys. (i found out that was because i'm a lesbian).

Well some time before I was 14 my dad told me he'd been seeing a nice lady for a while and they'd hit it off and were going to be getting married. This was pretty shocking (the marriage part, not the dating part. my dad's not super subtle) but I was happy for him, he'd been pretty down since he and mom separated when I was 10. I'd been living with both mom and dad 50/50 until my last years of elementary school when mom had to move for work. I got along better with dad so I stayed with him so I wouldn't have to move. I still see mom every summer tho.

So before I'd turned 14 dad's fiancé (Abby) moved into our house with her son. Her son MIKE. Dad said she had a kid my age but he'd never said it was Mike and now he and I were forced to live together. Mike was beyond happy that we lived together and took every chance to be around me constantly, the only place I'm safe from him is my bedroom because there's a lock. He constantly wanted to 'hang out as new step-siblings' but everything he wanted to do was date/couple stuff. Going to the movies, getting food alone, studying alone, etc. It was mentally exhausting being around him almost 24 hours a day. And whenever I'd refuse to sit by him, or 'hang out' with him, or play nice with him his mom would gripe to my dad that I was being argumentative and rude.

This led to my dad talking to me like the problem was with me. He'd tell me blended families were tough to navigate but me being difficult wasn't making things easier. He said if Mike was willing to try to build a bond then I should be too. Th
