Should a little Brother listen to his older Sister

Last Update: December 09, 2015

When you have parents to tell you what to do, you listen to them and do as they say simply because they are wiser than you.


Well can you say the same with your sibling?

I have had the privilege to look up to my big sis my whole life. But for the past 4 years she has been away in prison because of a deadly car accident on the highway. And the predicament comes down to this...

I don't want to go to college BUT I want to be a good bro to my sis no matter what.

She wants me to go to college BUT I want be around for my little sis who needs me around.

So I am thinking about just going to college to help her feel like she helped me with whatever but if I don't does that make me a bad brother.. I mean I should listen to her since she's older than me and all. I just feel like it would be selfish of me to leave my little sister with my parents..


Overall this has just been on my mind. I want to do the right thing and in the end I want to be an inspiration to my sisters by working hard in what I believe so it can rub off on them.

I think your older sister just wants you to have all the options available to you, and she believes the best way for you to recognize all those options is to go to college. The old tried and true solution. Your little sister shouldn't figure into the equation, because in this topsy turvy high tech world, two computers and a Skype account is about as close as she is going to want to be to you as she matures into and adult. In a way, you are already involved in a university, and as such, it might be best to give your current endeavor your best effort before you start a new project. You're young, and there will be plenty of time to try college down the road. If you decide to go later, you'll be older and wiser, and college women love older men. Not old like me, but late twenties is good. Do a case study to show your older sister the possibility of success in this business, and she'll get it. You don't want to disrespect your sister, but you don't want to have regrets late in life either. Or go to college-what do I know?

Yeah, you make some good points. And I can tell when she tells me over and over again to apply to college that she wants me to have all the opportunities going forward. But I do just want to focus on WA for now too. And I am young and I like how the college chicks dig an older man. haha. That sounds like a plan haha. :)
Thanks Broderick!

Your welcome. Some of that is what I learned when I went to FSU. I didn't enroll, I just drove around campus a few times when I lived in Tallahassee.

No it does not as a sister with older and younger brothers all I want for them is to be safe, happy, well and doing well in life, being here at WA is like being at college, you also need to remember you are her brother not her dad and she knows you love her not an easy decision but at the end of the day only you can make it, and I always say do not make a decision that you cannot live with makes it hard on you, best of wishes
