Concerned parents may neglect sister
I hope I am in the right forum and will get some advices about my problem.
I am a bit concerned about my younger sister (14 years), because my parents seem to kind of "neglect" her in a way. The main reason for that is our youngest sister (11 years) who has been suffering from a serious disease for the past couple of months. Since she got is, she is the main focus of my parents, they spend as much time with her as they can, always tell the other family members about how concerned they are about her condition and so on and so forth. Sure, I feel very sorry for this sister being ill, but I am also very concerned about my 14 year old sister, who is suffering a lot from the neglection of our parents. Besides her friends and our granny she has nobody she can really talk to about her problems, as our parents donīt listen and never take her problems seriously ("Look at X, she is having a big problem, yours is nothing compared to herīs ......." something like that my parents ever tell her). She is trying so hard in school to get at least some attention from our parents for her good grades, but it doesnīt seem to matter o mom and dad anymore if she get and A or an F.
I would like to help, but I really donīt know what to do in a situation like that. I would like to be a help to her and try to call as often as I can, but I think I am not a real help, because due to my job I am currently living abroad and canīt see her more than once or twice a year.
Would be great if anybody of you could give me an advice!
thanks in advance
