Technically, I'm not a parent, but I'm hoping you can help me. My father has recently left and a big void of fatherly like stuff has been left. I am that older son who moved back in and isattempting to help out the family. So naturally, the mini-father part of me is kicking in.
My sisters, however, are starting to lose maturity. One is in the state of constant anger and one false move means argument and confrontation. The other is now throwing tantrums and adding to the drama in the house; one is young and the other older.
So in my attempt to help, I try to get the angry sister to think about her words before she says them or to understand that she is not the only one with anger or hostility. However she argues (quite loudly) that she's not angry and that the only problem is me. While I can't discount that, I find it very unlikely that I can fix the said problem in me, if I can't identify it well. While I remind the drama sister, that she needs to be mature and that attempting to manipulate someone's emotions for your benefit will only turn them away.
So, in essence: What can I do? I fear I don't have many options. I'd imagine that my mother would need to step up but this experience has been emotionally crippling thus far. Any advice here?
