We're 2 sibblings in our family. Being an elder child puts too much pressure in me. Thus, my parents gave their best just to raise me for what i am now. In return, i want to show to thank them for nurturing me good values.With that, being and elder brother, i want to show to my brother that life is not a game. You should have directions and goals. Although sometimes you were down, but you should stand up and face again. Also, the importance and value of care in our family. I am alkways in his side, giving him advises and helping him as i can.

Im glad that you are able to do this to your brother. Just be careful not to sound to pushy. I have an older brother but he is not as responsible as how elder brothers should be, instead i am the one who became the elder here, he moved out, then i have to tend for my mother and little brother, all my earnings go to our family, without his help, you see, your brother is lucky to have a responsible brother like you.

Be careful how you do this. Your intentions sound good but as I'm a younger sibling I know it is important in how you go about this. You don't want your younger sibling to think that you are trying to be bossy or overbearing. If not done in the right way it could backfire and your sibling might resent you. The best way to show him is by example.
