My older brother thinks he knows everything and every time he comes home he won't stop telling me what to do. How can I make him stop? -- Tommy in Tulsa
First, tell your brother that you appreciate the wisdom and experience he's willing to share with you. Many of us do not have the benefit of this -- so take advantage of it!
Then kindly explain to him that sometimes the tone or words he uses make you feel belittled. You appreciate the advice -- but you're not completely brain-dead either.-- M
