Sometimes I get annoyed with my family. What can I do?

Pray to Heavenly Father and ask Him to help you be nice to your family. Hug them.

Giulia: Try to think about all the good times you’ve had with them, and think about how people aren’t perfect.

Bruna: Even if they don’t say sorry, I would forgive them.

If my little sister is annoying me, I make her bed or make her a treat. I also like to make cards, do extra chores, and say a prayer. I feel the Spirit telling me I did the right thing.

If you don’t like what they are doing, ask them to stop. I love them because they love me.

Julia: I can be kind to my family, and when I am annoyed, I can tell them that I love them and then be nice. I can follow the Savior and show them love.

Darrin: Just be happy and share with them and serve them.

I would pray, have family home evenings, and talk to them.
