My brother who is 15 years older than me was in charge for the weekend. In his eyes I was misbehaving so he asked me for my phone. I didn't want to give it to him at first but eventually did. He told me he'd give it back to me after 24 hours of being respectful. A few hours later I kept bugging him to give me my phone back and drove him crazy. He told me "no" so then I just got so angry I didn't even think and just punched him. He said "this is not acceptable go to your room" but I did not and then he picked me up and carried to my room and shut the door. I started started screaming and left my room then he saw me and told me to go back to my room until we've both calmed down and then he will come to talk to me about what happened.

My little cousin who is 10 is coming on a long drive with us. She always has a tendency to unbuckle her seatbelt when we're driving. My brother is going to be driving and got a seat belt buckle lock to use in order to prevent her from unbuckling. It is like a cover that can only be undone with a key. Has anyone ever used one of these? Does it work? Will my cousin hate it because she can't unbuckle it herself? Will she feel trapped in the seatbelt?8 AnswersSafety8 months ago

I live with my older brother who is in his 30s & younger sisters. We all live at my brothers house & he is their guardian cause theyre under 18. He says one of his rules is no swearing under his roof. My older brother came over to me & asked me if I did my homework yet. I said f*** the homework I have too much of it. He said watch it no swearing. When he started to walk away I started saying f*** f*** f*** under my breath, I was whispering & didnt think he could hear me but he did. He walked over to me & said what did we just talk about? I told him to shut up. Then I said I'm sorry. He grabbed my arm and dragged me to my room & told me to stay in there until I decided I dont want to swear anymore & to come join them again whenever I'm ready. So like 30 seconds after he walked away I walked out of my room & I said I'm not gonna swear anymore but I said it with an attitude I guess. He was like cut the attitude too. So I got frustrated and angry and screamed in f***ing hate you! He calmly walked in the kitchen so I thought he was leaving the room so I could cool off but instead he got hot sauce and told me to go to my room or I'm getting hot sauce in my mouth. My sister was in the room and started laughing so then I looked at her and said f*** you too. My brother then grabbed my arm again and dragged me into the kitchen and put hot sauce in my mouth but let me spit it out and sent me to my room. Looking back I was immature. Can he do that seeing I'm 21? Was he being extreme?7 AnswersFamily8 months ago

So my older brother who is in his 30's is the guardian to my little sisters who are in their younger teens. I was supposed to stay home with them and supervise while he went to the market. My sister who is 15 decided she wanted to go down the street to get Chinese food but before our brother left he told us not to leave the house. Anyways I told her no but she took her bike and left anyway. On my brothers way home from the market he saw my sister riding her bike a couple of streets over from his house. They both came back home together. My sister said he stopped when he saw her and started yelling and made her turn around and come back home. When they got home my brother asked my why I let her leave and I told him that I told her no but she went anyway. Then he started yelling at me saying I should've called him to let him know what was going on. Then he started lecturing my sister telling her how what she did was not safe. So now both of us are in trouble. He said he'll let us know what our punishment is after dinner but before dinner we can't leave the house.
Do you think this is a cause for punishment? If so how extreme do you think the situation is. My sister and I both apologized to him but he keeps sticking to his word and says we're both in trouble and need to make smarter choices. Just waiting for him to say what the punishment is...2 AnswersFamily8 months ago
