Can anyone pass along any advice on raising children who are not your own. My youngest brother who is 14 moved in with me 3 months ago. I am not even close to being ready for having my own children, how do I take care of a teenager??? I'm mentally not copeing, I'm soft and generous, and he's a typical teenager, can I do this can I do that, can u take me there.. It's taking a toll on my everyday life. I think I've given up 98% of my life suddenly and I don't want it to feel like his an inconvenience, coz his not his a human being and his my brother. I need any advice please!!!!
