Please help. I hurt my brother on accident and I feel HORRIBLE.

I'm 14, and my brother is 7. We were playing with this inflatable exercise ball, and he was recording me throwing it at my little sisters belly, and she was laughing and falling over. He got a little to close to her while I was throwing it, and the ball left my hand too late and smashed the camera into his face. His nose is CRAZY swollen on the left side and bleeding. Mom took him to the ER, and I feel terrible. He thinks I did it on purpose. I have no idea what to do. I apologized to him about 100 times and tried to comfort him, but I still feel bad. What do I do?? I'm afraid everybody is going to be angry at me.

Write him a heartfelt letter. Tell him over and over how bad you feel and it was truely an accident. Offer anything you can to make him feel better. Cry when you apologize. I actually believe you when you said you didn't mean todo this. If he's still at the hospital, fix up his room to make him more comfortable. Good luck.

You need to accept the fact that the situation happened and understand that it is was an accident and not something intentional. You can then apologise to your parents and brother and take care of him as a way of correcting your mistake.

Don't feel bad, it was an accident, accidents happen all the time, humans aren't perfect. Accept that. Tell someone to help convince your brother that it was an accident.

Accidents are called accidents for that reason and not on purposes. If it truly was an accident ..just say you're sorry and move on. He's probably milking your empathy.

Tell him that you didn't mean to. If he still doesn't believe you try taking him out on a little brother "date" take him for ice cream and maybe a movie. Show him you really care about him. To some people sorry is just a word that doesn't help anything. True affection will help him believe you.
