My "little" sister is 23 years old and continues to act like the world revolves around here. Unusually, my Mom gives in to her when she needs money/food/a ride anything. I think the first rule is: break the cycle. People wont change if you don't change the way you react.

Ok, I had, and still have, that same problem! First of all, don't ever say you hate your sister! As much as a PAIN they can be, God gave them to you for a reason. Now, as for your answer...I know people always tell you "Just ignore them and they'll stop!" ...Well, I find that VERY hard to do, but it's really the only thing you CAN do that will work. Eventually, they'll grow tired of annoying you, or making fun of you, if you just ignore them, or even laugh with them!



Hope this helps!
