Aside from cyberbullying, oversharing and sexting issues, social media also can put negative pressure on friendships, especially when one friend is very active about posting pictures, status updates and opinions that hurt others. Here are four ways to tell if social media is hurting your teen’s friendships. “Social media provide a very effective way of keeping old friendships going, so we shouldn’t knock it,” Dunbar says.

One of the perks of social media is being able to engage in the. Gradually, it seems social media has altered the DNA of friendship, and frankly, it makes me sad. In looking back at failed attempts to win friends (and keep them) over the past year, I’ve discovered six areas where social media is wreaking havoc on our friendships.

It Creates a False Sense of Intimacy. Social media makes us feel like we know. With the pervasiveness of social media in modern teen culture, teenagers spend much less time communicating over the phone and face-to-face than they used to.

Think of the scenarios that are created. Every time you log in your online friends are sharing the happiest moments in their lives. Hookups are not bad necessarily, but these apps do introduce them, which contributes to problems that many people have when trying to look for someone to date. Instagram and Snapchat enable young people to have expectations of what a relationship should be, and those expectations are. 1. We’re lacking social skills.

Being able to just “slide into the DMs” or type out a quick Facebook message makes people a lot more confident in having a conversation. Talking to someone when you don’t have to see them face to face and worry about how. Social media has strengthened relationships.

83% of teen social media users say that it makes them feel more connected to information about their friends. This chapter takes an in-depth look at the role of social media in teens’ friendships, looking at teen friendships more broadly defined. Social media is an important venue for interaction and conversation among America’s youth. Fully 76% of all teens use social media. Facebook is the dominant platform, with 71% of all teens using it.

Other studies also have observed links between high levels of social media use and depression or anxiety symptoms. A 2016 study of more than 450 teens found that greater social media use, nighttime social media use and emotional investment in social media — such as feeling upset when prevented from logging on — were each linked with worse sleep quality and higher levels of. And it’s becoming an increasingly prevalent peril to friendship in our social-media-saturated society.

Take, for instance, Julie, 31, who hardly recognizes her dear friend — a quiet, socially awkward individual with a biting sense of humor when among close friends — on social media.

Most people would say that social media strengthens friendships, but what about real intimacy and personal attention?

While there is a dark side to what takes place, teens still relish the friendship opportunities that social media provide.

They think social media is harmless, that virtual friendships are no more hazardous than real ones, because they don’t have the cognitive sophistication to go beyond their own immediate experiences and feelings— which is why most kids don’t recognize the dangers until something bad happens.

These are but a few of the playful ways in which teens responded to social media sites’ requests for information by providing inaccurate information that actually contains meaningful signals about friendship and sociality.

  • Aliyah if you want to change your content go ahead, nobody can tell you if you can or not because it’s your channel not theirs, you worked to get where you are they didn’t do the work for you. Us true Aliyah simone fans will support you and will still be here ��. And it’s crazy how people are saying “that’s not the real Aliyah” but they dont know who you are behind the camera

  • I find that friendships on social media are not genuine, just flat with no way telling if that friend is really your friend or just an acquaintance. I tend to lose contact with people I care about. Maybe it’s best to not have any friends and delete all social media. A friend you can always trust is your dog or cat. Pets make better friendships more than people.

  • Just say it like it girl us bitches don’t know you fr.We only see what she wants us to see guys so give her a break. I’ve been what for this gurrrlll. TURN IT UP!!!

  • People love to put others in THEIR box and then act like they know you from a 20 minute video and that’s that, y’all have to know people grow, change, and develop in themselves and that’s a beauty in being a human��

  • I honestly believe you should do whatever makes you happy. You’ll pick up new people who actually enjoy your content as you continue to grow your channel. I feel like it’s better to enjoy what your doing then be doing something you don’t enjoy and being unhappy. Plus the more you enjoy what you do the better your content will be lol.

  • The only person who knows you is YOU!!

    thats the whole thing about growing up people don’t like to see you growing up or just expect or perceive you to be what they assume from social media and when you do something “out of the ordinary” they think you’re changing and not realizing thats been a part of you this whole time

    Trust me I️ just turned 25 and still deal with it where people still expect me to be the same person they perceive me to be 10 years ago heck even 10 seconds ago.. at the end of the day stay true to yourself, and you just started college this is only just the beginning you will experience more things probably gonna say the same thing in the next few weeks or years to come just continue to be you and true to yourself only your real supporters (& me and new subbie) will always be here supporting and cheering you on

  • You look so prim and proper and lady like those swear words don’t even sound right. lol. Cute though! ����you’re probably a beast in real life. lol��

  • 10 points for efforts…Coz it takes a lot of effort to find a place in India where there is no Internet..Lost interest as soon as she started off

  • God I use to be the biggest attention seeker on this earth! Since I was a child. Because I wanted validation and for people to love me. But then out of the blue I decided to try and give it up. Give up wanting attention, give up wanting to be famous, you get the idea. Giving up all that shit is the key to living a peaceful, happy life. It’s the desire to be a celebrity that’s causing you to have a chaotic life. That’s what I think.

  • 1:40 oof hit me there. I move constantly, and easily throw things away while moving. I’d say I do see most friendships as more disposable… there’s only a couple I see as necessary really.

  • I really hope you follow through and change up your content and not let these little kids change your mind. I was on your live and when I tell you I could feel the frustration….sissss. Do youuu!
    Edit: can I just say some of the people on your live in the comments be so damn annoying and immature. I honestly be trying to ignore reading the chat cause oooo chileee��

  • Aw aliyah…i love you so much and i honestly believe that you have the mind to do whatever the fuck you want to do. You’re super smart and business minded… do what you want and i’m going to follow right behind ya!

  • What if a person had only a few signs said above, if a person is outgoing, extrovert, and naturally outspoken what does that mean?

  • Hate attention so much I canceled a birthday party my husband was planning for me. Once I learned he had a magician scheduled I was upset with myself cause that would have been a fun way to direct attention away from me.

  • I’m not sure how to put this. The information you have is very good, but I felt like you were being very condescending in your delivery of the information. Very snotty Overtone, which made it very hard to listen to what you were saying. And I’m pretty sure you’re going to say to yourself, well they don’t know what they are talking about. Look at how many likes I have. And what you said about uniqueness you’re only looking at one side of that. Some people do things for the soul purpose of self-expression. Which is unique! Which you did not state and their is nothing wrong with it. Take a look at artists….

  • I’m actually really excited for this new chapter of Aliyah, I’ve been here for a few years and especially being the same age, I also understand where you’re coming from when it comes to growing up. The content I’ve been watching lately is wayy different compared to 3-6 months ago. I’m definitely here for it! ��

  • I honestly love it you gone always have support on my end girl I definitely can relate GO LIVE YOUR LIFE HUN!!!!!❤️❤️❤️ just keep me updated every now an then ������!!!

  • Yes before I used to be an attention seeker but now I realized it and want to change my old ways..yes I still get lonely when I have no people approaching me but it’s not that I crave attention it’s just that I’m tired..

  • When you said “you don’t even know my government name” I lost it ������ that is so true. You ain’t lie no where in this video. Just be you, no matter what you put out I know I’ll be there to watch����

  • IF ANY OF YALL HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ALIYAH GROWING UP REFLECT ON YOUR OWN SELF!! if you can’t accept the fact that her content is gonna change bc she’s a fricken human and is changing as well go watch some Ryan’sToyReview or something idk! BYE! personally i love her ig lives bc it’s just so raw and herself and i’ve been waiting for a change in her content like this. i’m so excited to see the new content. don’t get me wrong i love the big sis aliyah but i still would love to see her actual personality not just the filtered, advice, kiddie content. i wanna hear about her college life and new experiences. ALSO MIND YALL OWN BUSINESS SOMETIMES SHEESH!! ik i’m nosy but some of y’all are next level! GET IT TOGETHER. anyway love you aliyah! do what you want to do bc imma watch anyway!:)

  • Great content, But Having to deal with infidelity is to make sure you are not just assuming your partner is cheating, as a policy, don’t say they are cheating until you have gathered proof of their act, confrontation without evidence is just unacceptable, i contacted @brandhackers1 on Instagram and on WhatsApp on +19163042321. i was in the eye of the storm with my now Ex, i saw all her mails, WhatsApp messages, Kik and even pictures she exchanged with her lover, but it was easier at the end really, having proof helps lot. Email:brandhackers1 @ gmail. com

  • Girl,,you just post whatever you want. I’ll still watch it. I totally love your channel btw and would really like to hear you talk about sex and such topics

  • Yasss Aliyah we love an unfiltered video I also love how you like to do things differently and be different with your videos. Love watching your videos. ��

  • I’ve been watching yhu since I was in 4th grade now I’m a freshman in high school and I’ll always support yhu stay positive babe❤️�� can’t wait to see the new and improved Aliyah❕

  • im secretly an attention whore but i act like i hate attention, then my friends give me attention to “annoy” me but i actually like the attention lol

  • I definitely get where you are coming from personally. I can still see you as that big sister cause thar TikTok was honestly hilarious in my opinion ��❤️

  • Aw I’m so sorry you have to go through all of this it seems stressful just you explaining it. I know you’ll pull through even better on the other side!

  • I’m actually really excited about some new content from you. The kiddie content does get old and I don’t blame you, but at the end of the day this is YOUR channel and you have the liberty to do and change what you want as you please. Don’t ever hinder your personality and how you act because a few kids can’t accept the fact that you’re a growing person and you will change. Change is apart of life and no one can take that from you. Just know that I will always love you and support you and what you do. Remember, big sister don’t always have to be clean to be a good sister. They are the ones that have to get you ready for the real world and what’s gonna happen behind closed doors growing up! I love you! ��

  • be grateful she didn’t just disappear LIKE OTHER YOUTUBERS, she explained herself when she should not have to. aliyah gotta do what she gotta doooooooo

  • As you shoulddddd�� grow up on us, live life experience it and tell us ❗️ your true supporters (like meee) will be here for all of it and still support you no matter what content you post. Ilysm��

  • Captions aren’t just for the hard-of-hearing, you can use them when the content is interesting but the vocal fry is driving you nuts.

  • Honestly I watched you while in highschool and I’m going into college so I get it I’m glad I can’t watch someone my age in the same class and situations

  • Be unapologetically you ��, and whoever can take it or leave it. Happy to be able to watch you on this journey. Yesss adulting, growing, and glowing!

  • I saw both TikToks and I was like finally something I can relate too, Aliyah has gone through so much character development over the years but you’d only know it if you were on her lives and you saw the facade slip for like half a second but this aliyah has been there for a while.

  • Girl you are 18 now! and you are growing up i would love to see your real side it would be the real you if people do not support that then they can go. Do you beautiful!! <3

  • please make videos about the topics u spoke about like sex, storytimes, your experiences, etc. i’ve been waiting for this type of content for soooo long and i’m really happy you’re finding yourself and speaking out about how u feel ��❤️

  • Yess I love how your finally showing the real u��!! I could tell that u wanted to change how you r on YouTube and I’m ALL here for it❤️!

  • I love that you finally expressed this. Guys please let her evolve, change, and grow up it happens to everyone. We shouldn’t keep her in one box and set expectations we’re all human

  • heyy I’m advertising a brand called “mind your business” for more information please visit www. this is Aliyah’s life not your

  • I’m honestly so proud of you Aliya! ❤️
    I don’t understand how people can say that’s not you, when they literally don’t know you at all, who are they to say that, keep going and keep your head up, we love you! ❤️

  • i hate mfks that dehumanize creators like……BITCH IF YOU DON”T HAVE THE SAME EXPECTATIONS FOR YOUR SELF THEN U SHOULDN’T HAVE SO MANY FOR OTHERS! like gtfo u have no authority over somebody’s life no matter how much u gave them or how far you brought them….it’s called RESPECT

  • While I don’t use FB or Insta or Snap, from YouTube and forums, my online friendships do have their place. I cant tell my family I’m bi and such, but I can get support from a couple of online friends.

  • I haven’t had more than 1 friend in probably 5 years and then they have their own stuff to deal with people suck I work 60 hours a week and wouldn’t mind seeing a friend but they work 20 hours “iM bUsY” all I have to say to that is. ��

  • Please be yourself your real fan will understand that your in college and not a freshman in high school anymore. We will be waiting for those storytimes love you ❤️

  • Great message at the end. Ive definitely learned how handy it is to use Facebook to rekindle old friendships easier and more deliberately.

  • You are a prime example of an attention seeker. You have gotten your hair done, are wearing a ton of make-up, and speak in a fake ‘girly voice, and use excessive hand gestures which I assume was learned about from how to be a public speaker. The only people that aren’t attention seekers are people that live in caves.

  • Aliyah I really wanted u to changes look like 18 dress like 18
    Do things like an 18 year old stand up for yourself.. And I love would to see new style and collab with fashion nova, pretty little thing, shein not some 15 year clothes some actually 18 year old look…… Sorry if this feel some type of way ������

  • if you don’t try to please people then they say you don’t care and are not trying. I mean, maybe it’s attention seeking but if you are operating below normal standards then I don’t seek how trying hard is attention seeking. If it is, it’s positive.

  • Tbh yall have to let her live with her life and it honestly sucks that she has to remind people that it’s her channel and if she doesn’t love what she does anymore than she has the right to fix that, Also Aliyah if your actually reading this I just want to say from the bottom of my heart I adore your content but if you wan’t to switch it just do what makes you happy and we will always be here for you no matter what ��✨

  • also, I want to say you helped me thru so much and you have taught me so much but everything has a season so do whatever you have to do (which you already know you don’t need anyone’s permission for $ h 1 t:)

  • Perhaps the rate at which ideas and knowledge are exchanged now as opposed to just 20 or 30 years ago has something to do with it. Sometimes I think taking a break from social media is a good thing.

  • I never commented on your videos before, but I do watch your videos a lot and I just wanted to say I would love to see who you really are, idc ab cussing or you trying new things. I just want to see whatever makes you happy ❤️

  • Social media ‘friends’ aren’t friends any more than someone you know from a bar is a friend. Try disappearing from social media for a few months and see how many people notice.

  • Bruh the sad thing is that she actually had to make a video to address that she’s growing up… that rlly says a lot abt society as a whole….

  • hey girl i just wanted to say go do you i would love to see other parts of you as a person like the natural you im 19 and yes you have to grow up and it comes with change just be you and enjoy it!!!

  • She just described me in one video. I guess the problem is that my parents raised me in such a way that I was always praised until I experienced the real world and realized that it’s not what I perceived it to be and so the addiction for attention went on. Sad to say but I still have this attention-seeking problem. I’m also very introverted and growing up in school, I was always invisible except when I perform in Talent Shows. It’s really frustrating me and I want it to stop. Okay wow this comment of mine sounds attention-seeking. Self please make it stop:(((

  • “oversharing on social media”

    me on a random youtube video:
    y’all wanna hear about my daddy issues? my insecurities? no? okay. here’s my whole life story anyways.

  • gorl post what you want… if you wanna talk abt dick, weed, etc you should b able to, fuck anyone who makes you feel like you cant be a 18yr old

  • I’ve been loving you growing up because it’s like I’m growing with you. You are who you are and the people who love to watch you like me will accept it. Be yourself girly:)

  • GIRLLL you have to read this, girl don’t even worry. It’s kind of like the image our parents sometimes have of us, that we are super clean super innocent but for you it was with your viewers. But dw were all like how you are describing at that age!! It just sucks that you even need to explain this to your viewers ppl need to understand how us teens are ����

  • Girl ur amazing, it’s good to take feedback for small video things but they should change who you are, u need to be you and be happy and I love you and ur videos are amazing no matter how they are and I can’t wait to see you grow ����

  • Girl do you and a true supporter and true fan will understand. me and you are the same age and your subscribers are growing too and we have to accept your feelings and your lifestyle as you’re growing. people can’t tell you who to be and who you are because they’re not even around you 24/7 and they don’t even know you on a personal level like that. ppl need to learn to mind their own business and be concerned with getting their own business instead of in everyone else’s. I really do love you Aliyah and I want you to be happy because you deserve it. you change it up gf ��and imma be here supporting you periodt������

  • Me watching this: hmm….this first reason sounds like me…..
    Me watching this again: umm…..that’s strange…..these next few also sound like me……maybe it’s just a coincidence…..
    Me watching this AGAIN: yeah this is definitely me…..I really need to change……��

  • Just say it like it is aliyah us bitches don’t know you fr we just see what you want us to see. I can wait for this new aliyah. Like I really been waiting for this. TURN IT UP!!!!!!

  • i’m so sorry that you feel that way and it’s really bad that society feels that they’re entitled to your whole entire life. yeah we love the tea and all but that doesn’t give these people the right to go spill it somewhere else. it’s time for you to go ahead and spread your wings and if you need to start putting out more videos that you enjoy i’ll be right here watching them.
    i hope you see this, i love youuu

  • We still love you Aliyah and everyone goes through this phase in life and some people just don’t understand that everyone grows up and evolves and they just gonna have to live with that. LOVE YOU

  • 1. Anxiety often creeps in
    3. Insecurity often creeps in.
    Hold up right there.
    1 Doesn’t have anything to do with attention seeking.
    3 All attention whores I know who has all the other signs you described have no sign of this, if they are insecure why in the world do they want attention?
    Are you sure you are not redirecting attention seekers into depressed people? Hey that’s really cruel.

  • I did everything she said few hours ago,i woke up full of stress want to find out a resolution thanks God I found you I’m sure this video can make big a change into my life. Just want to say big thank you. On thing u said I put into my notes ” There is no one in the world make you feel enough other than you.❤️

  • Sis, us real ones will support you whatever you choose to do. If people don’t agree with your true self, they aren’t the audience for you❤

  • Hmm I don’t agree I feel these are more signs of low self esteem/insecurity thats not really seeking attention its more seeking approval which is a bit different.

  • I think I do these things without realising. Can you make a video on why people feel like they need attention and how to stop it? X

  • Hello 3 years ago person, i am a sophomore in high school and thank u for this, i have not had many friends since I’ve moved in 5th grade where i was just fun, but lets be honest the change from elementary to middle is that leap where u start getting insecure and such, Ive always been very protective of myself but it got much worse over the years, I haven’t had many friends bc im often to nervous by what they might say back to me if i talk to them, life often makes u feel like everything is crowding around u and suffocating u and the only way I could get this attention i so craved was via grades, i did very well then went to a school for smart ppl (long story) i left earlier this year bc i was getting very depressed and anxious. I had nothing, no friends, no motivation, and most of all at the time i was extremely lonely. I was never talked abt bc i was average and the more I realized that the more depressed i got, i am now in this pandemic, still suffering from these but to a lesser degree as i was able to talk to a few ppl and finally felt important to someone but i need to fix this issue. Its harming me, my family, and my future. I’ve never noticed how much i just hungered for attention before and now i think i need to find a way to make it better and figured researching it would be the best first step, so I would like to thank u for making this video as it’s definitely a wake up call, ur not a victim bc u want attention, u have to just stay urself try to swallow that guilt u have for anything and talk to new ppl, its only something i can fix and although it will be tough i want to make a hope that one day i can edit this post and say i helped myself, i am sorry for the poor souls who pressed read more but i just want to explain to myself why im being so selfish and self demotivating and promise myself i will be better and i will make others better, rather than rip them down so i can stand on top pretending I deserved it

  • My ex-wife was an attention seeker. Her mom treated her bad. Attention seekers will leave you exhausted. They are jealous and pathetic.

  • Tbh the first time I saw your videos I thought that you were like 16. Honestly I think you should do what makes you happy. And to those people who made you upset can go [email protected]!#@ themselves

  • I’m so over it, I literally have zero friends that’s normal, they all crave all attention I’ve never been an attention seeker, I’m always the one to give it, I have no love life, no life at all so I seriously dont seek attention, I’m quiet, laid back, I don’t gave a Twitter, Instagram or Facebook

  • I don’t understand why some people try to know a lot of creators life. We dont need to know what they do. They like to have a private life.

  • Girl I’m 18 and I absolutely support u being more open about your personality it even helps me relate to you more knowing we’re the same age and have similar experiences

  • Ummm this isn’t attention seeking at all. Perhaps she lives in a different world but showing your body is another. Or acting incredibly dumb. Or always diverting conversations back to you. Interrupting. Hmmmm. This doesn’t sound like attention seeking at all. Maybe look up what a narcissist does to seek attention and try again

  • I don’t wanna be that girl but I really bad that we made you feel that way �� you should be able to grow up and express yourself no matter if it’s changing the aesthetic of your channel every week every year or every day be you ��

  • I honestly don’t even care what videos you choose to do your an ADULT she’s not a child guys but either way i will still watch you cause your videos are ✨IMMACULATE✨ and so is your personality <3

  • Aliyah I ain’t gonna lie… I love a lil more now �� it’s amazing that we can grow up together and we can all learn from each other’s experiences, you’re still our big sister, now we have the chance to learn more from you in a range of ways, you’ll make us laugh and we can learn from your experiences and you can feel more comfortable with us which is the best feeling. Post what you want and if it’s you we’ll love it, we love you sis! ��❤️

  • Aliyah has literally been the only youtuber that I have watched for almost a year without like forgetting about her. Her content was good then now, and I am exited for seeing her grow up and growing up watching her. She’s a normal teen and that’s what I like about her:)

  • I enjoy you either way honestly also I would love to see you get out of your nice and sweet character and see you curse some of theses ungrateful ass people out. Keep doing you girl and be happy while doing it.

  • I’m thinking social media is a bit like junk food for mental health. Recently I only met my cousins. We communicate mostly on social media. I am finding that this is making me really depressed as it doesn’t feel like we are really interacting most times. I’ve decided to limit some social media. I need to meet them in real life.

  • i dont want to be that one person that self diagnoses themselves, but im almost positive i have depression. symptoms that im seeing are my mom has depression, i cry everyday, i always feel the need to improve myself, i feel lonely a lot, im a very lazy person and i procrastinate a lot.

  • Keeping secrets, envy, long distance,jealousy,narcissism,lies and infidelities are major threats to most marriages and relationships and it is important to be smart not to trust 100% when dealing with our partners. Yes, I know the importance of trusting but that same trust can hurt you so much and don’t forget the saying that once a cheater is always a cheater. I’m glad that cyberhackinggenius helped cloned my husband’s phone. I got access to all his dealings both on phone and social media without touching his phone. All I did was share my husband’s phone number with Cyberhackinggenius and I was able to read both his new and 2 years far back deleted messages from my phone through a programmed link to a cloned app containing all cloned cell information without having to touch his phone. My husband was a cheating Narcissist and I’m glad to find out all his secrets and infidelity with the help of cyberhackinggenius. I got to discover that my husband who is legally married to me here in UK is also recently married to another woman in Canada and I’m finally going through a divorce with lots of evidence against him. I read all deleted and recent chats on his Whatsapp, Twitter,Facebook,Instagram messages and Skype. You can contact this great hacker “Gavin” via Gmail  (cyberhackinggenius) or text and speak to him directly on his phone and WhatsApp: +19256795146 and don’t forget to thank me later.

  • Girl I’m not gonna lie I stopped watching your content for a min because of the exact reason you want to change. I was more drawn to your twitter and spam account tbh. I’m proud of you though❤️

  • something else i wanna add that i forgot to mention was that sometimes i just wanna show my life. i don’t wanna have people looking to me for answers and advice all the time. once again i love helping people but sometimes i just wish i could show without giving any like information if that makes sense? idk maybe i’m just talking or annoying probably both

  • I just realized i had 6 of these! My family always said that it if was somebody else’s special day i would ruin it becuase it wasn’t about me and now I see that it was becuase i wanted attention. I am going to try and do better.

  • Just had to show this to my daughter…
    Appreciate the content and another voice telling her the same thing….thanks for posting this…fyi..
    Random YouTube search for anything that could help

  • YESSSS! I was waiting on this and I’m really glad its here. she’s growing up so I was looking for this change/ transfer/ update. don’t get me wrong, I love her old/ other content but the constant family friendly “mannerisms”, not talking about serious/ certain controversial topics, the hardcore censoring is the reason I stopped watching other youtubers. i’m growing, she’s growing, everyone’s life stages are constantly changing causing everyone as a person to change with each experience. I love this opening and im really excited to see what content she has in store.

  • Social Media Friends are nothing but a disappointment waiting to happen.. Yeah they are real and hide behind a computer tablet, Android device and a Computer.. Shallowest Friends that I ever had was that on a Social Media App.

  • I already know that I am an attention seeker. I even always tell myself that not to be one, every time. But sometimes, it’s out of control, I will just regret my actions after I am all alone in my room.

  • i and i’m sure many others would love for more mature/grownish content! from my view point i think that you should post whatever you want without fearing people are going to think that you “changed”. you should be proud that you changed in a good way, you should always be changing. growing up is something everyone does and that is perfectly fine. i would love for you to open up!

  • Mhm it’s my sister so this is my life I’m fine telling my story so I have learning disability and my sister is death but has a hearing naid but she knows school well and she knows chores well and she knows math and reading and everything but when I’m upset my parents say stop crying or go in your room or say hey do you need time alone but when my sister cries my stepmom is giving her the attention like she like oh no I’m sorry do you want a hug and they try to make her laugh:( I feel like a wall when it happens and my sister cheers up fast and smiles at me oh and my stepmom said you only cry for attention when really it’s a reason if y’all read this can y’all tell me ideas I would love to know cause I was crying typing this in and I hope y’all have a nice day. By the way edit I’m in special needs classes and she’s not

  • Now that you know the signshere’s how to stand up for yourself FAST (while still maintaining your self-respect) ✌
