Re: protective cousin

Hi @Tashbear221

It sounds like you're going through a bit of a tough time with your cousin at the moment. It's always a bit difficult to have these conversations, but I am sure if you are honest with how you're feeling, and explain to him that his actions are making you feel uncomfortable, it could solve the problem. 

Have you spoken to anyone else about this? It could help if you got some advice from your parents or friends about the situation Smiley Happy

Re: protective cousin

It's great that you have a good bond with your cousin @Tashbear221 Smiley Happy It's okay to be worried, it sounds like it's a difficult situation to be in. Do his friends offer any support in what's going on?
Talking to other people, such as close friends or family members, can be a great way of getting some advice on how to approach your cousin, what do you think?


I am finishing with ReachOut this week, say good-bye here. I'll miss you all!

Re: protective cousin

Hi @Tashbear221


May I ask what you're wanting to talk to him about? Is he being too over protective? 


Are you nervous because you think he won't like what you have to say or is it something else?
