    get to me

    Dear Teachers,

    A. My parents treat my older brother like a baby ‘cause he’s the oldest. And this probably sounds dump but it’s all starting to get to me.
    - What does “start to get to me” mean in this situation?

    B. The child will go to school and tell his Teachers that his Dad beat him. He has even called DHR to try to get his Dad put in jail.
    - What does “DHR” mean?

    Thanks a million

    "Get to me" means "bother me", "annoy me", "upset me".

    Often DHR is Department of Human Resources, but this one sounds more like a child welfare agency.
