What do I do if my little stepsister(7) is being a brat?

My stepsister is such a brat to me. Well to everyone! Her mom(my stepmom) spoils her rotten and we have a younger sister who only is almost 11 months! I am so tired of it!! Even when my stepsister gets in trouble she still gets loved on by my stepmom! Help please....I just want some advice to get along for my dad and stepmom?

The best thing to do is to lead by example. It may be a bit of a difficult situation for her, having to adapt to a blended family, and a younger sister. Pick one day a week where you and her do something fun together, she will look up to you and you will then be able to undo some of mom's spoiling. If she get's obnoxious, just tell her she can't act like that if she wants to hang with you.

Well, you could go to a local pet shop and browse around looking at the pets/fish. You can bake with her, Have a girls day of makeup/ finger/toe nail painting, an dress up. You can help her make a collage of her favorite things to hang in her room.

Just go away to your room, turn on some music and pray for peace and quiet. Im the youngest in my family, when I was being a brat my brother and sister would wait for my parents to be gone then beat me.

I'm youngest too, but I'm not young enough for my brother to be able to hit me. LOL I'm only a year and some change under him.

Pop her! Or go in your room and make it sound like your having a BUNCH of fun. Then she will want to come in say: "Nope, you're never coming in till you stop being a brat!" Then she will aim to always be nice to you :)

Tit for tat. Not because you are afraid of it but because you are elder and you have the responsibility to teach her moral.

Beatings are good. Otherwise if that doesn't work for you try to find things to help her not be bored. I'd guess that's why she's being bratty. Gotta love lil bros or sisters

Tell her that Santa does not like brats, not even little brats. Tell her that Santa is your best friend and that you will tell Santa when she is bad, being a brat, or being good. No Christmas for little brats! It works on all my relatives brats.
