thenameswhales answered Tuesday October 10 2006, 11:25 pm: I don't have a twin, but i've had some similar situations in my life so i iknoow exactly what your saying. The only thing that i think will really work is if u confront your dad. Tell him exactly how you feel, he can't argue with how you feel. SO make sure u saying when you treat her this way I FEEL....If you don't see improvements, then i'd suggest going to your mom or someone else in your household. make that person understand how you feel, and then ask them if they can talk to your dad, because your message obviously didn't get across to him. I hope this helps! good luck [ thenameswhales's advice column | Ask thenameswhales A Question ]
adviice_whore answered Tuesday October 10 2006, 9:18 pm: babe i know exactly how you feel. i know its a tough situation and you probably feel like crap when you get in trouble and your twin doesn't. i dont have a twin but i do have a sister and when she does something bad my parents dont give a crap but if i make the slightest mistake they flip out. i know it sucks but we arn't the only people who have to go through it. the only way to prevent this is to talk to your dad. i dont know if you want to have the talk with him and your sister, or just him alone its up to you. sit him down when hes not busy and tell him how you feel that hes not being fair. tell him everything you told me and explain how you feel. if he knows he will probably make an effort to punish both of you guys if you do something wrong. tell me if it works! hope i helped.

well i hope i helped a little.
=) i hope everythings works out. [ drama_queen_101's advice column | Ask drama_queen_101 A Question ]
