My mum met a new man when I was about 12 yrs old. after a while I got along pretty well with his son who was one year younger than me. He, my stepbrother, has had some problems during the last years, it seemed as though he was bad at all the things I was good at (school, sports, making friends... etc) and I guess it was tough for him.

His father doesn't interfere in my upbringing and he's usually nice to me but most of the time I think he's a childish ******* because what he does to other people. It's clear that he's had an effect on my stepbrother by he's way of treating him.

The worst scenario I could imagine for my stepbrother a few years ago was that he would get stuck in front of a computer and get ever fatter. Now he's out almost every night from what I can tell. He used to live at his fathers place every second week but he's not been there for several months, and I only live there when I come home on the weekends, so I hardly see him anymore. Mum told me he's going to some kind of place where he's supposed to stay for a few days after christmas.

Now, sometimes I wonder if there was something that I could have done to stop him becoming what he is. He's not stupid, I know that, he's just lazy and lacking self-confidence.

What could I have done?


Sorry for the long post, there's so much to tell.

Be there for him if he needs you, let him know you are there.
Not much you could have done really, you are only a child yourself hun.I dont mean to sound condesending either.

Well, I guess it's his way of covering up for his lack of self-confidence. And since last year he's been hanging around with only younger guys, where he is the one making decisions.
