My sister has been stealing my medications

I take Adderall for my ADD. It s a controlled drug, so I have to go back to my doctor every three months or so to get a refill. I m currently out. Recently I stumbled across a supply of it in her possession and I don t know what to do. She doesn t know that I know. I guess my real question is what do I do? I m 16, she s 14, and my mother is in charge of what meds I get and when I get them.

I wouldn't rat out my younger sibling... I'd kick his ass. there are two things that an older sibling has to their advantage in situations like this. Trust and fear. First use fear. beat her ass then have a nice chat about NOT stealing your drugs. Then use trust Tell her how serious you are about this, that you care about her and this bothers you. And make sure she knows that if she does it again, you really won't have any choice but to tell your mother. (even if you won't rat her out, say you will, but make sure she understands that it isnt because you want to) Regardless she needs to know that she's been found out by you first. If you run and tell, you lose the trust element completely and in alot of ways, older siblings are more influential on kids than their parents are. If you want any sway to steer your sister in the right direction she has to know she can trust you to not sell her out.
