    Hello, I'm worried about my brother. He has been smoking and drinking and hanging out with people who do these things. Its been getting worse and my mom is also starting to get worried. Its qlso not jelping that she recently been diagnosed with stage 1 cancer. My brother is not listening to anyone. Today he came home and told my mom to buy him a lighter. I'm worried about my mom's health as well. When my mom left to go to the grocery store today, my brother started going on about how one of his friends stabbed another kid in school. Please tell me, what am I supposed to do? My brother is only 12. His behaviour is slowly getting worse and worse. I feel worried he's gonna end up getting in trouble with the police. He needs help. But how do I help him when he refuses to listen to anyone?

    Hi! I’m really sorry your going through these horrible things, and my first recommendation is talking to his head teacher. Especially if the stabbing was true, it’s best if you tell them. Also perhaps talk to the police, as he is only 12 he should get help with his problem. I really hope everything gets better for you and I hope your mom gets better too!

    Hi,

    First of all, try and stay away from your brother as he could get you into smoking as well.

    Go and speak to his headteacher about these issues, or ask your parents to. This could get him off the smoking while at school.

    After telling the headteacher/parents leave it to them, as you wont want to get into the middle of it.

    I hope this helps, and if you need to talk I am always here to do so.

    Hey. This is a really tricky situation for you to be in. Please try not to worry too much about your brother, he probably is currently trying to cover up his feelings with harmful behaviour, or acting like he doesn’t care. Try to get him to talk to someone, maybe even recommend childline? tell him you are worried about him, and talk to a trusted adult. hope this helps xxx

Try and talk to your brother dont be mean and try to stay calm in eorried about a family member whos smoking too try to bot put pressure in him and talk to him while hes in an alright mood tell him how you feel and give him reasons to stop the people hes hanging outbwith might not be as great as he thinks if you can talk to him he kught be aboe to see why this is a bad thing to him if theyre smoking and drinking its bad for their health thats a resson why he should stop too there are lots of health risks if you inow this isnt who your brother is then help him stop i hope this helps sorry for writing so long i hope youre mum gets better and your brother is alright stay safe xx
