Me and my sister have never got on particularly well, and I went to her house yesterday and stayed over the night to look after the children as her little ones are too much for her 13 year old to babysit. When I went to go to the bathroom I saw her 13 year old in a bra with a defined bump and my sister has been complaining for weeks about how her daughter can't stop throwing up and how she's worried about it. Also when I walked in it looked as if the 13 year old was examining her stomach and there was a packet she hastily grabbed and took with her, I'm really worried about her but she's not open with me as I barely know her really so she locked herself in her room for the rest of the night. My sister's going to go crazy at me but I figure I have to broach it, right? She'll think I'm calling her daughter promiscious...etc... Please help me unmuddle this situation so to speak! :|Answer Question

This is a hard one...exspecially if you and your sister haven't always seen eye to eye (if you know what I mean)...
You could talk to your niece first and ask her... and maybe together can tell mom...

I would ask my niece directly and say you are there to support her and help her address the situation but it is not something to ignore. Be really understanding and ask lots of supportive questions and let her know that she can be honest and you will help her in any way you can to break the news to her mom. If she is, I am sure she is scared. She will need a non judgemental adult to help her break the news and be strong.
