    Right guys, here's the thing:

    I love my sister, but there is no unconditional love whatsoever - the love is only there by default. I really don't like her. I think her personality sucks. She's an arrogant, insensitive, stubborn loudmouth who only really cares about her own needs. I try to get her to change her attitude, but she actively says to me, "don't teach me stuff!". She wants not to change, and sometimes I hate her, but she's very young, only 12, so I think, fair enough, she's only a child. I hope she'll sort it in the future and I reckon she will, but does anyone else have this with their younger siblings?

    I know what u mean and it must be very hard for u. If you didnt care u would just let her grow up to be a nasty piece of work. So i think u seem a good brother. She is still young atm and may be following her friends at sch or something. If she doesnt listen to u she is just going to have to learn the hard way..not sure what that way might be, but she wnt get anywhere in life by being nasty...

    She's twelve. She'll grow out of it and she will actively do the opposite of whatever you what.

    If your at lot older than her and living at home she is most likely to get on your wires. Age differences show how immature people can be. Things will get bettter when she gets older and grows out of it and when your not at home so much. The further you are away the less they annoy you. It makes it easier to get along with each other if there is distance.

    my sister is 17 but similar - she's selfish, insensitive, stubborn and acts disrespectfully towards our parents. I've long stopped trying to put her right - I'm hoping she'll grow out of it.

    My 18 year old sister steals and lies compulsively and without guilt, is the only member of our family to see the back of a police car, and generally treats our parents like crap. She doesn't care about anything other than what she wants, including morality. She has no problem talking and behaving however she wants in public. She responds to any punishment my parents try with self-destructive or disruptive behavior. I can still hope she'll get better eventually, and if she really needed me, I'd be there.

    So why don't you just cut your sister some slack?

    Older ones are the worst. I disowned by brother a few months ago for doing just one too many dispicable things to me. I'm ok now he's out my life. Sounds to me like your sister is likely to change as she gets older. Maybe you should just try to avoid her and give no cause for argument. No good trying to tell her things at that age. Kids don't listen

    Someday, someone will turn round and either slap her, or tell her what she's really like and she'll take a tough blow

    Until she does, just avoid her and try not to let her get her own way. Tell your parents if she's out of line, and hope they discipline her.

    She will learn, eventually, that her behaviour isn't getting her anywhere!

    My sister acts in exactly the same way. 1 difference. She's 30. A complete embarrassment.
