i’ve got two younger sisters and both have had difficulty after losing my mom. the older of the two has seemed to level out after starting college and moving away, but the younger one is still in middle school and seems to be lashing out in many unhealthy ways. she’s voiced that my dad is never around and is always at work or spending time with his girlfriend. she’s really nice to her and makes my dad happy, but she is taking up an uncomfortable amount of my dad’s time. a large part of that is still the fact that my mom’s not around, and even moreso because she passed away long enough ago that my sister only has hazy memories (she was 6). the rest of us have tried to help both of them but i mostly just hear arguments and yelling from both whenever they interact.
