The Know-It-All Big Brother

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

Dear Tommy,

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
