My mom favors my little brother? What should I do?
Help . Mom favors little brother. I'm sick of it. She says she "loves us all equal" but it's so clear she favors my brother more. I have to get water for him, do everything for him and it's not ok for me to yell at him or reprimand him, or I'll get scolded by mom. But he can hit me, punch me, kick me, yell at me and scold me and it's perfectly fine. He also cries REALLY loud, like screaming "I'm dying" kind of loud. My mom never gets mad at him when he cries and she hugs him and comforts him. When I cry, silent I get yelled at and my mom goes hitler on me.
Today at a recital, I was waiting to go and my brother punched me hard in the nose. It was almost bleeding, I was crying a little bit (silently) and it hurt so much. I rushed to the bathroom and cleaned up just in time for my performance.
After the recital my mom yelled at me for "crying all over the place" and and how I need to "learn to withstand pain". It hurt so much, my brother was looking so smug and pleased with himself and my mom not saying a thing. Yet when my brother gets a tiny papercut he screams his little head off and Mommy's there to the rescue, all consoling and sympathetic! HELP! What should I do?
