Hey, my baby sister (well she's 11, so not that much of a baby) wants to come with my parents when I move into my hall. I was just wondering if people think that's a good idea? Would it be an appropriate place to bring an 11 year old? don't want to take her somewhere where she's going to be given a bad influence.
Also, I'm scared she's going to embarass the hell out of me, she's worse than my mother than that.
Has anybody else brought/are bringing a younger sibling when they move in?
Thanks in advance
I don't think it'd be a bad influence for her 'cause most people'll behave at first, you won't know each other yet & everyone's parents'll be there.
My little brother wants to come, although I think that's more to do with him wanting a day off school & I'm not sure if we will bring him...
My bro will probably want to come and have a nose, cos he's really interested in going to Uni now that I'm going. He's even started looking at courses he wants to do..
I'm taking my sister (although she is sixteen...I would probably take her if she was younger). It's a big change for them as well and I believe they should see where their older sibling will be living.
I don't see why not. She'll only be there for a few hours anyway.
Theres no way i want my younger siblings to come when i move in, but if you're fine with it, i cant see any problems, i doubt there will be any bad influeneces etc.
My 11 year old monster will be coming as well I think. She also likes to embarrass me as much as possible by telling complete strangers inappropriate things about my private life...
your sister will be an extra pair of hands to help move in!! take full advantage! x
But, on the other hand, will take up valuable car space!
When I moved in it was literally just me and my dad, to be able to fit stuff in.
^^^^not if you buy all ur stuff when you get there - thats what i did - i only had one suitcase when i moved - and took it up by train. when i got to Uni - ibrought everything from there . . .so much easier and saves money (ie extra cost cost of petrol)
My older sister's coming too & she'll drive so my brother can go in her car, therefore not taking up any car space ^_^
Thanks guys, I guess I'll bring her then, was just worried about excessive amount of language etc. but if you think it'd be fine then thats good enough for me, and I do like the idea of another pair of hands to help with the moving in.
You need to look at it the other way too. Make sure she doesn't get in the way. When I first moved in to my house one of my housemates took her 10 year old twin brothers with her and they were running about everywhere and it was a bit annoying.
I think most people would have the consideration not to use bad language around kids anyway especially on the day they are moving in because they wont want to make a bad impression.
