My family always fights I think that the problem revolves around my sister, she always has something to say and a lot of the time it's is spiteful. We fight with each other a lot, the last fight we had was two weeks ago and we still aren't talking. I'm so over fighting and listening to my sister wine about everything and her telling my mum to change things that no one can. She fight with my dad heaps to because he tells things how they are( my mum tends to sugar coats things). I am also worried that my mum is becoming a bit depressed because after a fight she is alway so detected. I really don't know what to do and how to handle this I'm just really lost.

The most important thing to remember in this case is that it isn't your fault your sister is so immature. If your mom seems depressed, maybe you should talk to her about seeing a therapist. Also, if possible, you could try talking to your sister. You mentioned that the two of you are giving each other the Silent Treatment......be the mature one. Break the silence. Start talking to her. Be normal :p
Try leading by example. Show your sister the correct way to act. Try telling your parents that maybe your sister should see a therapist, too.
Good luck, and stay strong :)

^^ Exactly. Be the better person. Be mature and handle this like an adult. Talk to your parents about this.

My pastor said that the silent treatment doesn't work; it only extends the problem and makes it harder to fix it later.
