Little sister rant

Lately my sister has been bugging me. She's so rude and so lazy. She'll be 12 this year, she's getting so old! bahaha
Anyway, I'll be seventeen this month, and I take care of the house. I clean daily, make dinner now, do my laundry and her's. My mother prefers doing her own. I take care of the animals, vet schedule, whatever.
My little sister doesn't do anything!! I don't envy her doing no work, I enjoy keeping the house clean, it makes me not so nervous.
My littler sister refuses do anything, when I was her age I was already vacuuming and washing the floor, doing the dishes, the windows, my own laundry, and whatnot. When I go to college in less than a year I'll be home a lot less often and my mom, who's 62 this year, will have to be cleaning and taking care of herself, the house, and my sister. I feel that my sister should be taking responsibility for HER messes, room, laundry, and some general cleaning.
I clean her room, and her disastrous messes around the house.

I was t the barn today, and my mo went out to play cards, so my sister was at home. She decided to make a cake, brownies, and eat all over the house. I said "-sister- you should do the kitchen tonight, because it's a mess that you made yourself" she responded "no, you can do it. it's your job anyway"
So I washed the dishes and put most of them away, and left a few for her to dry and put back. I asked her to do so, and she said "no, you're such a bitch, do them yourself!" I almost smacked her, but I didn't. I took her computer and pushed her in the kitchen. LOL
She put away one, then my mom came down, and she ran away and said "Mom, can you put away the dishes?" and SHE DID. If I had said that at her age, I would have been smacked. God. She's so spoiled! When she grows up, if she never learns, she's going to hate life.

Anyway, I'm done now. I know it's not my place to say, because I'm not her mom, but she really needs to be more responsible.

OH, no. She's home-schooled as well. All of her classes are on line, but she doesn't do ANYTHING. Unless my mom sits there and forces her to. That's not fair at all. When my mom comes home from working ALL day, she deserves to sit down and relax, no sit and re-read things, and make my sister do her own work. She practically answers the questions and writes the answers for her. She's going back to school next year, well this year, and she's going to have one hell of a time with her work ethic.

Alright, now I'm done! lol

Well, the good news is little sisters do grow up!! I know, I'm a little sister (about the same age difference as you and your sister) and I did! We fought like cats and dogs growing up (our poor mom) but are best friends now.

As an older sister I always had more responsibility in the house. I would talk to your mom and tell her that you think your sister needs some more responsibility. Even if its just keeping her room straight and doing her own laundry. Its a start.

I've been doing my own laundry since I could reach the wash knobs, around 7. I was tired of waiting for my mom to do it. I would stop doing it and make her wait. She probably won't like that very much. Worst case, bleach something she likes or shrink it in the dryer. When she gets upset show her how to do her own.

Oh heck no... that would not fly with me!

Reminds me of my OLDER brother who is over 18 years old and contributes ZERO to our household.


Sounds like mom needs to stop doing everything for her baby and kick the baby out of the crib.

You complain about her being spoiled, but both your Mom and you are doing everything for her. Change your expectations and I bet she will step up.

Well heck, if I had someone who followed around me cleaning up after my messes, I'd be lazy too!

Stop cleaning her room! I mean seriously, my kids have cleaned their own rooms since they day they could walk. Sure as tots I helped them but by 5 or 6 "help" was either you clean that room or I will and I clean rooms with a trash bag!

Stop cleaning up after her and if she leaves a giant mess, that will be your Mom's problem to deal with! She isn't your child and she isn't your responsibility. If your Mom wants to clean up after her, that's HER problem!

Yeah, I just hope that works. We left her room go for a month and she didn't clean anything. It was gross and buggy.. uhh..

Anyway, we'll try that. Thanks(:

I'd suggest to your mother that you start taking away things she likes. No TV, no iPod, no horse, no nothing until she starts taking on responsibility for herself! It sounds like your parents need to put the foot down on her and let her know your not the made. She know if she doesn't do it eventually someone will!
