Annoying Sibling

Annoying Sibling
My brother keeps bothering me whenever I play video games. He copies the voices from the games. I try to pretend not to hear him, but it doesn't work.

Reply from the Highlights Editors
It sounds as if your brother is hoping to get a reaction from you. Continue trying to ignore him. Many kids tease just to upset the other person. If you don't get upset, your brother will probably lose interest.

Your brother might also be showing you that he'd like attention from you. Perhaps if you spend time playing with him on a regular basis, he'll bother you less when you play video games.

Best wishes,
