My Brother's Gift

My Brother's Gift
For Christmas my brother gave me a CD that I don't really like, but I want to like it to make him happy! What should I do?

Reply from the Highlights Editors
It's considerate of you to think of your brother's feelings in this situation.

Have you listened to the CD he gave you? Sometimes, if you listen to something a couple of times, your feelings about the music change. You might try to listen to it again with an open mind.

If you continue to dislike the music, you might want to quietly set it aside for a while. It might be a good idea not to make a big deal over whether you like or dislike the CD.

You may want to let your parents know how you feel about this situation. Tell them that you do not want to hurt your brother's feelings. Since your parents know you and your brother well, they may have some good suggestions.

We hope this helps.

Best wishes,
The Highlights Editors
