  • You don't make a point of SHOWING that you are ignoring him. You simply ignore him. Best way to describe it would be to say, let your attention turn elsewhere. As if whatever he is saying just isn't particularly interesting. You don't sigh, you don't roll your eyes, you just find something else to pay attention to.
    This also does not mean pretend he doesn't exist. It just means that when your sibling is doing is "superiority" thing, you look for something else to occupy your time.
    It takes time and patience but this will work best.

  • I have a cousin who is like that, but normally he does it to his puppa, and they usually just let it slide.

    Sometimes you have to let him or her know to give the possibility of giving thought into something and not just mouthing all the time.

    More on actions not mouthing

    • oh and also do the ' exthinguish method '

      if there is an occasion or instance he or she starts mouthing, pretend you ignore by not showing you are affected, do turn your attention somewhere

      For instance you suddenly thought about doing something or you remember something like ' oh I knew I was going to do something ' or ' hmm is red good for a table top or white ' somehow you are showing you are thinking to yourself about other things despite what he she wants you to feel, and it reflects you are not affected by it at all. Which does extinguishes his or her dominance.

      Remember never ever show annoyance, be very calm, take what he or she said in and show you are not affected by extinguishing the action she or he gave and act as if you got attention on so much more important things 😊

    • Sometimes a smack upside the head will suffice. haha

    • lol She has Put my other sibling down on the stairs for some things and yes, Punches me in the arm, if she thinks I need it. xx

  • I know the pain. I have a really close friend from highschool that I've just recently discovered is a huge "know-it-all". Our mutual friends were kind of always distant to him and I couldn't figure out why he was never invited to social events and whatnot. It has now come to the point where I am, myself, trying to avoid him aswell because he is doing my head in.

    I'm preparing for having a heart-to-heart with him about this soon, because I would hate for our friendship and history being torn apart because of this.

    ah welp:/

    • Open lines of Convo is always the Best from the rest.
      Thank you, dear, and I do feel your own pain. xx

  • My little sister is a real pain, though usually on accident even though she is all the bloody time. It's partly because of her being "borderline mentally retarded", but it's mostly bad habits she never stops...

    Anyway, back to the subject of how I deal with it. I can get easily agitated by her habitats, but try hard to see past them or calmly remind her that she's doing something annoying. When I get particularly mad, I tell her to go away. (Almost never yelling. Mostly just sounding really pissed off.) If she continues, I give in and go away from her. Often taking a nap if I'm really mad, which I always do after yelling at my parents.

    So, there you go. Try to shove aside the subject or escaping from it in bed.
