Dear Youth Ambassadors,

My dad’s side of the family treats me like I’m not family. I don’t know how to deal with it or fix it. What should I do?

Sincerely,

Rejected

Dear Rejected,

Kill them with kindness, no matter how rude they are to you. The positive attitude you have will eventually rub off on them. Sit down and talk to them about it. If they hear how it makes you feel, it might make them change.

Sincerely,

Youth Ambassador

Dear Rejected,

Don’t hang around that side of the family or just have a relationship with them over the holidays. Do speak up and say whatever is on your mind to them and make sure you say it with conviction.

Sincerely,

Youth Ambassador

Dear Rejected,

Talk to your dad about how you feel and ask him why his family treats you like that. After he speaks to them about it and they still don’t treat you right, then stop hanging out with them. But do tell them how you feel. I hated going to my dad’s house because I would always feel left out. They were so close to each other and I wasn’t really connecting with them like I wanted to, so I stopped going. But, I regret that now because I think we could have grown closer.

Sincerely,

Youth Ambassador
