My brothers and i hardly eat anything. I am overweight and am not proud of the fact but i’m not bothered by the fat comments. 2 of my brothers (they’re 14 and 17) are average weight for their height. But my youngest brother who is 13 is overweight. Now i try not to be a hypocrite and i’m not. I don’t eat constantly.
This is how my mum treats my brother. He can eat whatever he wants, he can have every last ice-lolly, choc ice, bag of crisps, biscuits, toffees and melted cheese he likes. We get it in the ear about telling him to not constantly eat cheese or sweets.
My mum used to buy 6 cans of diet pepsi and he would ask for 1 and then drink 5. Mum wouldn’t care. Any of us drank 1 and we would get grief off of her.
Watching tv tonight my brothers and i wanted to watch holby city. My little bro comes down from upstairs where my mum has Virgin installed and asks her if he’s allowed to watch some rubbish kiddy halloween film. My mum said yes without even asking if we wanted to watch the tv.
He’s turning into a spoilt brat. This christmas i’m getting a Wii and 100 pounds worth of stuff. (it’s a joint 21st birthday present from the 8th nov, we already have 1 wii so i will be able to play the games i get for my birthday).
My brother sulked because my mum can’t afford to get him guitar hero 4 for christmas except that it costs 150 pound for 1 game.
My mum can’t see that my brother is constantly eating because he’s bored or that he is turning into a spoilt brat. I’m not saying that i’m not because i can be but i would never ask for anything that my mum couldn’t afford.
Destiny, i’m 20 years old and not in school. Also one grandmother has severe alzheimers and one is not very good at expressing herself (due to a brain haemorrage she had when i was 7) and she also doesn’t get on with my mum. Both my grandfather’s are dead. And my dad would rather not get involved.
