Why doesnt my little sister show me respect?

Why doesnt my little sister show me respect? Topic: Respect homework
June 20, 2019 / By Annice
Question: me and my sister have a great relationship i am 15 and she is 11. i know it is odd that i would be able to talk to her seeing as though she is younger than me but lately things have been getting out of hand she is being disrespectful and treating me as though she is older than me. i think maybe it is because we have a relationship that is unlike others that she does not recognize that i am the older sister. i think that i should draw away a little less from her to let her know i am older and she is not. she even said you dont act older because u talk to me and most older siblings dont talk to their younger siblings.. i love to laugh and joke around with her but i think i should draw back and act more mature and show her that i am the oldest what do you think? and why do you think she is acting this way?

Because you're her older sister. I certainly had no respect for any of my older sisters, and some of them were more than 10 years my senior. They weren't my mom. I resented the fact that they were given more freedoms and more responsibilities than I was (of course, my parents had reasons for not giving an 11 year old the same responsibilities as a 19 year old, but I didn't care.) I often could see all the mistakes they were making and would roll my eyes and think "Now how come they're stupid enough not to do their homework, even I know better than that" and that didn't help my opinions of them either. It's the age. It's the fact that she has no reason to respect you (your age is not a good reason to respect you, that's a good reason to resent you. I mean, in her eyes, you're as irresponsible as she is, you're just a little older, she should have the same freedom, being judged because of your age isn't fair... pointing out from HER point of view, not saying it's right btw.) And if you start pulling away from her, she'll only resent you more. The whole "older siblings don't talk to younger siblings" is a crock by the way. The older the bro or sis is, the more they talk to the younger sis. It's the ones who are closer in age from my point of view that tend to push to separate more. She's more likely trying to say you don't act older because "you act like me, so it's not fair you get treated like you're more mature, cuz you're the same as me." It's just... the mentality I remember having the most growing up. Hope this helped to give a bit more perspective. It may or may not be what she's thinking, but to me that's how I thought at that age. You don't need to make her recognize that you're the older sibling, or force her to respect you. The fact is... she doesn't HAVE to respect you, you're not her mom. In a year, you'll be driving, that'll be enough. She treats you nice, or you don't drive her places, simple as that. You can do that more now too. Go to the mall, offer to let her come if she's nice, if she's not then don't take her next time. Aim for the respect you treat another friend, not the respect you give someone older than you.

only so which you be responsive to you sounded slightly like a butthole asserting "i'm the eldest and that i deserve appreciate". Why are you men no longer allowed to apply the workstation on weekdays besides its kinda stupid. She only flat out feels like a brat. My sister is 8 she thinks she is tremendously even regardless of the indisputable fact that she is grotesque and cries and screams and that i consistently get in hassle and she or he cries and screams over the littlest issues. Her giggle is stressful. i elect to punch my sister so no longer ordinary i'm 13 years previous and am more suitable then my mom and approximately equivalent with my dad. So i be responsive to what you're dealing with.

i am a little sister and a big sister and i like it when my sister givers me Piggy back rides that always make me fell younger and since she acts like she is the older one say big sisters buy little sisters drinks and candy or let them hang out with their friends!

Innes Originally Answered: I own a condo that i no longer reside in, the HOA doesnt allow renters, however ive moved my sister in?
I would fight back. A lot of HOAs are in the red because of the foreclosures, so they are looking for ways to bring in more money and fees to current property owners are the prime source. My advice is to check the HOA rules (make sure you have a copy of the current ones). See what defines residency, however, I think you have a solid case for residency now. Also, I think the letter is a good idea because it shows that you made a valid response to their threat. In the letter I would state that my sister is staying with me full-time as a guest. Maybe include a brief statement about how she just lost her job or something. I would also provide copies of the utility bills to validate your statement. Best of luck, I think you are going to be fine.
