well pit, i come to you for advice. my younger brother is turning 17 in a few weeks, but his whole life he's never acted his age. as far as his development is concerned, psychologists have told my family that he's about 3-4 years behind (he was held back a year; he did senior kindergarten twice).

We've never really gotten along that well because of this, and he has this flagrant disregard for everything and everyone. For example, my xbox is set up in my room, and lately he's been seriously abusing the privilege (my dad grounds him from it, he still plays it, he claims that it's his xbox and it's his right to play it, etc)

he wears my clothes all the time without asking me, he basically just spends his time ruining my shit. the only time we've ever really been "brothers" to each other is the one time i smoked a joint with him, when i saw his real personality--he's a lot like me in many different ways. But again, he's a ****ing shit disturber and i can't take anymore of his bullshit. I've tried to ignore him and his antics, but it doesn't work. He's just too much of a little ****, and his morose attitude towards everything is a serious downer on the whole family.

So today he walks in my house (im looking after it for a week while my rents are on vacation) wearing one of my sweaters. I told him to take it off, and he refused. Something went off inside of me and the next thing i know, i have him on his back and im choking the shit out of him. I snapped on him, and i've done that before, but i've never felt that sort of rage before. I fear that in 10 years we'll be completely estranged from each other, and i really don't want that. My relationships with my sisters is just fine, and we all feel the same about him.

god pit, what should i do

tl;dr my brother is pushing me away from him with his actions and i want to fix our relationship

Have him smoke joints constantly or introduce his scrotum to a medieval mace.

Be a brother and beat it into him. That's what both of my older brothers did, and I turned out great.

Smoke that mother ****er senseless. Take your one common bond and try and have fun with him. Besides the THC should mellow him out. It really does suck being the younger brother though. That whole living in his shadow thing is hard to break out of. Anyways, whatever, That what I'd do.

I respect them for finding a place in society under a lot of ridicule, but I have an odd paranoia that they are going to steal my job.

i didn't describe everyone else's younger sibling, this is much different. We've had him see a psychologist, and he has a learning problem. without going into details, he learns much, much slower than everyone else.

that's the thing. he isn't growing up, period. Letting him be would be detrimental to him. Im speaking as his older brother now, i mean i don't want to see him fail, he's making the same mistakes i did.

and beating him won't work, my dad's a minister so i'll get in more trouble than he will

My brother did the same shit.

I didn't speak with him for 5 years. Now he doesn't push my buttons anymore.

Beating him WILL work. My entire family is a bunch of preachers and other religious folk. My brother acts the same way. I beat the hell out of him, he acts right, and the religious folk are thankful. Of course, they don't thank me... They believe it was a miracle brought on by God, and the bruises were just proof of God's loving touch.

I thought it was only girls who got mad at their younger siblings wearing their clothes.

Anywho, I say... just be a brother, don't hit him or anything.

The only thing you should be hitting...

is a fat joint, with him that is.

I have been in the same boat, my brother has traits of asbergus(sp?) syndrom and the doctors always adressed the effects it will have on him growing up,going to a normal school, behaviour etc.. we sent him to a normal school and treated him like every other kid his age despite when he was being a little shit/was having problems and he's surpassed all expectations becuase people have had patience with him.

This seems oddly reminiscent of my relationship with my older sister, we really didn't talk, ever, until I turned 18.

What you need to do is realize that for whatever reason, he's incredibly immature. Perhaps instead of choking him when he does something annoying ignore it. Yes I can see the response now, "I can't ignore it anymore, blah blah blah". Deal with it! Or if you are unable to, accept that you are just as immature as him and go have a lovely brotherly day of banging your heads against the wall or whatever it is you idiots do to get dumber these days.

Yea, sicne your the older sibling, he should be respecting you. I had to do it to my brother. He'd do all this sh*t to me, so I just popped him in the face, and he stopped.

have a heart to heart talk with him and tell his stuff and such, or fight fire with fire and see how he likes it so when hes angry you can talk to him after

You did drugs with your mentally disabled brother? That's a bit bizarre.

Edit: ah wait, not mentally disabled, just a little behind in terms of mental age. Never mind then.
