Salaamu alaikum wr wb,
Whats the best way to deal with a younger brother with horrible behavior. He's a little bit worse than the average teenage boy but not the worse case ever. Its to the point where we do not speak to each over except to relay messages from our parents to each other or if I am telling him to do something like turn the stove of our get out of our mothers room when she leaves the house. He is extremely disrespectful, calls his his sisters and baby brother derogatory names. he especially has very little respect for females, especially his sisters and mother. I have three other brothers, none of them have ever been easy at this age, but they never once showed such lo regard for there mother and sisters. The only time I ever find myself getting angry to the point where I feel my heart beating faster is when I have to deal with him and my parents are not there to back me up or my dad refuses to deal with it. When he was at school, I went through his collection of video games, he has some with sexually explicit interactions, excessive vulgarity and violence. Would it be wrong if I took them and destroyed them since they are not my property? Aside from my parents involvement, what should I do as an older sister other than telling my mother and father? I want him to change because I care about him, and there is no future in my community for a boy who behaves that way and never changes. Should I stop trying to correct him and just completely block his behavior out?
