My older brother (a year older than me) and I just had a fight. I was in his room where the desktop was reading some Yahoo News, when he got home. My routine was to open the interesting news on different tabs and read them one by one. He's a little cranky from work and asked me to leave his room like immediately. I told him I'm just gonna finish reading all the tabs then I'll go use my own laptop. He said he's waiting for an email from his boss so I told him why don't we open your email while I finish reading. He opened his mail while I finish my tabs. But he's angry now like talking, and talking me out of his room. I got mad of him eventually too. I finished the news real quick, then I deliberately closed all tabs including his email just so I can get back at him. This made him real mad, so he pushed me twice. When I got to my room I screamed at him. Then I kicked him he kicked me back. He said some violent things. I told him, that you can just click a browser and your email will appear again so why does he have to push me like physically? I hate him so much! He told me if I ever provoke him again he would punch me stuff like that. I told him why don't he do it right now. He didn't and I insulted him. Sometimes I don't get him and I think he's the worst! Ugh I'm gritting my teeth while I'm encoding this discussion.

Immaturity is the word here. Why did you kick him? Insults and kicking. I would ignore him and not use his PC any more than you absolutely have to. Maybe he will miss your input and be more cordial. Ignore the negative! Men are rather tempramental anyway. Good luck!

You need to stop acting like an over pamper little girl, just give your big brother a hug and be nice to him, he will always love you and protect you like every brother in the world. There is no need to provoke him intentionally, after all he is fatigued and burn out from work; he is waitig for his boss email to receive order again, you need to cut him a slack and stop give him hard time again. By the ways, why you have to read all the news in Yahoo, don't you have better thing to attend during the day??

Like so many people alrdy said no he should not have pushef or said hed punch you. But also u should not have provked him. If he was waiting for an important email from his boss u shouldnt have closed it out. That only made matters worse and didnt accomplish anything other than making him madder.

Unfortunately this is often the case with siblings, the key to knowing if he is a good brother tho is simple. What would he do if someone else behaved this way towards you? Often times we are tempermental with those in our family simply because we know we can be and they are always going to love us ya know but if some one else was to treat our family this way we would flip out. If your brother is like this then I think it is safe to just chock it up to sibling rivalry or whatever and the two of you will eventually calm down and all will go back to normal but if this is not the kind of brother he is then I think you know you have a bigger problem on your hands.

Awww I feel so sorry for what had just happened. It was so wrong for your brother to hit you physically. I guess what you've experienced was brought about by displacement. Your brother got mad from work from something, which I'm totally clueless about, so he has to have an outlet, and in this situation, it was you. His anger was released unto you because he couldn't place it to the actual offender. I guess you should have left in the first place when you saw him cranky and told you to leave his room. Things would have not gone any worse if you did that, but I also cannot blame you cause you asked him to just finish reading politely. Just chill, siblings can have those kind of fights instantaneously but it doesn't mean the love for each other is lost. Just pass your wrath to something, not someone. Like, scream a lot while singing with the radio or punch and bite your pillow. Teehee.

Wow! Are you a psychologist or something? Yeah I guess you're right. He's sometimes like that when he comes home. Maybe something happened at work. I don't know. The next time he does that, I'll just ignore him. Because if I try to get back at him, things will just turn from bad to worse. I like your stress-relief suggestions. Thanks!

Thanks! Yeah I guess you're right. We fight for the simplest reasons but then we tend to forget it. His mere presence irritates me sometimes, and I think the feeling is mutual. I hope things will get better. :)

Oh no! We never ever shared a hug! None that I can remember! So doing that will totally freak him out. And I'm a girl! Sometimes I wish I just had a sister instead. Anyways, thanks for sharing!

Me and my brother had a lot of fights before. Even when we are older we get into fights. It's normal with siblings. We hate them. We sometimes becomes physical. But it's a good thing that we also know our limitations on hurting them physically. For sure, you and your brother will be laughing the next day

I hope so. I'm planning to just ignore him until he makes the first move. Yeah I think siblings do hate each other. I read once in an article that based on psychology, we tend to hate our siblings to block feelings towards them. If siblings wont develop a degree of hate toward each other, then chances are, the opposite will happen.
