She's being a drama queen, I would completely ignore her.

Talk to your parents and see if they can help you with her. Or establish a family meeting. I'm not from a conservative family, she would've been knocked out days ago if she were in my family :lol:

I'd just ignore her, honestly. Make it clear to her that her opinion does not matter to you...And don't give her a reaction from there. For all you know, it might be her getting jealous about a space invasion or whatever, and trying to get a reaction out of you. Maybe even feeling so space invaded that she's trying to convince you guys to move out...? So ignoring her would take away that motivation. Just an idea.



Or she could just be a know it all. 16 year olds can be that way, thinking that they know more than anyone else. Anyway you shake it, ignoring her, or even throwing a word or two around yourself (Revenge! :twisted: ) might be enough to get her to cut it out.

Wow you have a lot of siblings.
But seriously. Does she really think that god handed down a stone tablet with a list of 'bad' words and said 'though shalt not say ASS!'
She sounds like someone I would never want to be around.

Maybe talk to your parents. Maybe they can explain to her that she isn't acting very christany.

This too lol. Or as soon as she starts doing it, call her out right then in front of everyone. If she can be an ass in front of everyone, she deserves to be treated like one.

The funny thing is, before we moved in, it was ME she always had an attitude with. Now it just switched.



And yeah, if it weren't for me being pregnant and hurting my mom's feelings, I might have punched her already. It's so rediculous

One more idea...if you guys are Conservative Christians, and she's being a bit legalistic, you might want to remind her of how Jesus behaved to those who didn't act in a way that was considered "Godly". He befriended them, loved them, and did not judge them. Tell her that if she's trying to behave in a Christ-like manner, that she needs to stop pointing fingers and begin to actually care for the people she's been pointing at. One more idea, ask her if she's in any position to be throwing stones at your husband. (John 8, especially verse 7) Use her own mentality to combat her. :D

Sounds like she's looking for attention...or is jealous maybe? How close of a relationship did you and her have before you met him?

Yeah that has been said the past two sundays at our church get together but I think she has selective hearing. My family is kind of famous for being the harshest with family members but she's the worst of the bunch. My husband and I aren't conservative Christians but we try to remember that they are and keep our language or other things the kids aren't allowed to be around, to a minimum. My parents haven't complained once, so why should she? He has been nothing but nice to her (which is hard because she pisses him off) And she just spits it in his face

We weren't very close. I mean we were enough, but I was/am closer to my other sister (18) than she and I ever were. In fact she used to give me the 3rd degree even before I left home. She didn't like me very much then. (different story)

Has it been actually pointed out to her specifically? Growing up in the Conservative Christian realm, hearing something in church and actually having somebody call her out on her behavior can be different. Might be worth a try, at least.



That's too bad that she's so...judgemental. Kudos to your husband for being so patient. Heck, I think he's being more Christian than she is, by the sounds of it!

He tries lol Normally he would have already given her what for and told her what he thought, but thankfully he's being nice and just not saying anything
