    I am 9 year’s old and i have a brother he is 7 nearly 8. He has a poorly head, my mummy tells me its called learning disability. I love him very much, but i am getting very upset and angry with him. I dont understand why he is so mean to me. Is there any one who can help me, i feel so sad. He calls me nasty names, uses bad words and it really does hurt me. And when i try to have a nice time he just ruins it.
    The teachers at school are trying to help but nothing seems to be working.

    Hey! I’m 12, I have something a lot like you, my sister, who is 10, says a lot of bad words and mean things to me a lot aswell.And, the same as you, it really hurts me when sje says these thing. But you have to just remember, that he does still love you, and he doesn’t mean anything that he says. And as for school, go have fun with your friends the most you can, if you’re not the the same class, enjoy every lesson, laugh around woth your friends aswell! And with the fun bit, instead of him ruining it, you can teach him how to have fun aswell! Because its ways more fun when you have fun together

    I’m forurteen but it’s the same for me, an older sister who is sixteen and a younger brother who is ten who both have learning difficulties. With his difficulties your brother can’t really help his behaviour but try to find an activity you both like so you can play with him. Ask if you need anything else. Xxx

    I can help you

    Hi I am 13 yrs old and I also have a younger brother that is 7 ; 8 in February and I can relate completely to how you must be feeling
    And “learning disabilities can be different in so many ways –  these are the problems my brother has:
    PDA (pathological demand avoidance)
    SPD (sensory processing disorder)
    He is currently being assessed for ADHD

    Just keep holding on because it gets better after a while and soon you will understand what it must be like for your brother every day as he actually has to deal with the constant battles
    P.S don’t let it get to you :)☺P.S it will all becomes clear and worth it in the end:)☺

    Hi!  I am 10 I have a 12 year old sis who has Rett Syndrome. I love 💕her very much and I would do ANYTHING for her. When she was 2 the doctor said that it was unlikely for her to live past 10 years old but now she is twelve and for this I admire her.

    Your sibling can’t control what they say. Most of the time they say it because they don’t feel in control and want to have a little bit of paired to feel important. I have a young autistic brother an d he uses bad words and isn’t the nicest person but I know he loves me. I’m sure your sibling really loves you and probably looks up to you. Your like there big role model. Just don’t give up on them and always know your not responsible for them. You be you. Enjoy yourself.
