Hi CyberShrink

Just posting to say that things are going better with the step-brother situation. He is all of a sudden nice to me, why, I do not know!. I don't like fighting and I am glad that he is showing respect towards me. I think if a person wants respect from someone, you have to show respect towards that person so that you can earn his/her respect. Thanks for your advice CyberShrink!

Will communicate soon again!

Best Regards
Morné :-)

Hi Morne --- sounds like you must be doing something right ! very pleased to hear that such things are going better now. Remember to ncourage him to continue wih the changes you like, by reinforcing them --- find nice ways to compliment him when he is showing respect towards you and generally acting better towards you --- comment on how nice it is to have a step-brother who can be so helpful or supportive, whatever. And show him respect in ways he can notice, so that he can appreciate how important it is and how good it feels.
