My Brother’s Bad Habit
My younger brother, Ryan, has a bad habit. He likes to go through the things in my room whenever I am not around.
I spend a long time in school than he does. When I am in school, Ryan will go through the things on my desk. Once, he accidentally tore my favourite bookmark. I was very angry with him. He apologized but he continued with his bad habit a few days later.
My things are usually out of place when I come home from school. Ryan likes to play with my soft toys. He throws them about my room but he does not pick them up after that. I sometimes find my soft toys under my bed. My mother has scolded him many times but he still continues. Last week, he drew on my school project. My mother caned him but a few days later, he was rummaging through my drawers again.
To teach him a lesson, I let a few lizards loose in my room the other day. Unfortunately, my brother was not afraid of the lizards. I was the one who spent a terrifying night, hoping that the lizards would not crawl over my body. I still have not found the best way to stop my brother from touching my things without my permission.
