Sometimes, mothers also expect older sibling to always be the one to give in to their younger sisters even when the younger one is at fault. It is sometimes hard to deal with needy younger sibling who are willing to receive love, but hardly ask the older sibling how they are dealing with their problems. Even if the older one does, the younger one is not interested. However, they can never do the same. They have to be always supportive without receiving love back. This is a particular case, and in no means pertains to all younger sibling and older sibling relationships. What do you think?

Thank you so much. Often as older siblings, our voices are not heard. And its wonderful that your mother is reaching out to you. Often the mother, in many cases that I have seen, expect too much of a motherly/give and receive less role. Thanks.
Its especially unfair to expect of such great things from children. At the age, the younger sibling would most likely not have to take on such responsibility. Its equally frustrating when these roles grow late into adulthood and past marriage.
