My 12 year old daughter is just mean to her sister. i will tell my 9 year old to do something and of course doesn't do it right away, "T" will turn and just start yelling at "H" I butt in and tell her I am the mom and not to worry. Tonight she just starts yelling because her room is messy....I told her it is her fault the room is messy it is her room. "t" just keep saying that is is her sisters fault she did it to make it messy.
I just don't know what to do, should she talk to a councilor is she depressed? I never remember being this mean to my younger sister. Please advice will help!!

Why does she feel that she needs to ride herd on her sister? Does she feel that you don't follow through with things?
How long has this been going on? Has she been in for a physical, spoken with her doctor, or anyone that she could talk to and open up with?
Sounds like typical big sister behaviour, but if she's doing it consistently after you tell her to stop, then there's an underlying issue.

Instead of telling me I am bad mom, any ideas what to do. All I am asking for here is help. Being a single parent is hard work, that was harsh all I wanted was ideas and help.......
