  • She's 16 years old and if she's been around her mother, your sister, at all; she already suspects something is going on. Tell her now.

  • I would tell her. My sister is a drinker too and i always say the same thing i just wish she would stop.
    At 16 kids are alot smarter then we give them credit for.. she may already know but yes you should talk to her about it.

  • That really sucks. I'm sorry. I think those kids are ever so blessed that your sister had a sister as wonderful as you. I believe in God, *&* I believe life and earth are just bigger than you and I and I like to ' think ', everything happens for a reason.There is no excuse for your sisters bad behavior and choices, because it does come down to, " choices ", we all have then NO MATTER our BACKROUNDS. I think to many people use their ," rough ", child hood as an excuse to keep behaving badly. I wish they would just get their heads out of their asses or get off the pitty pot and jump into life while they are still alive and have the chance. I deal with a situation like this from a distance. Good Luck and give all your negative energy you have toward your sister and make it a positive one to put into those kids who need all the love and support they can get!~ Godd Bless you and your family.'
