That is a tough thing. Assure her you aren't going anywhere. Hold her close. Talk with her. Talk about things she likes. Then, perhaps start a game..something to get her mind off of it. She will have moments like that...maybe for years. Just reassure her you are still there. You are doing great.

Thank you for best answer, I hope it helped. And I hope your sister is doing better. You and your brothers are doing a great thing by staying together. Family is so important. No matter who walks away from you, you always have each other. Hold on to that and you can make it through anything. :)

Hold her in your arms and let her cry. She is not looking for a set answer other than to find security, which has been taken away by the parents desertion. Love her and try to be there for her. She will always remember that.

Obviously, read to her, do nice things with her and try to have some fun, try to get her mind on to cheerful things, but mostly be there for her.

Just let her cry, she'll eventually stop.
