Being Fair...Or Unfair??

Its often said that parents live their dreams through their children. I am sure all of you who have seen Kabhi Alvida Na kehna, remember SRK trying to make his son a football player when all he wanted to do was to learn music... I myself have been made the brunt of the maternal expectations... what with the 'learn the classical dance... my father did not let me do it...' or 'why shouldn't you be studying here... or studying that much...'

Well, things changed.. when my younger sister was born...times had changed... and till date I do not see any pressures on her... she like all of em say, has a mind of her own.
She is seven years younger to me.
Even though, I hate her guts.. and still do... I love her alot.
And off late I have been noticing a tendency of me being.. more like the parent to her... I have been pushing her to do things that I missed when I was her age... 

I know what I am doing is not fair... and I need to pull my act together... 
How can I live my good ol teenage through my sister....???

Sakshi,

I think I can speak for both sides, as a son as well as a father. You are right. Parents do have expectations from the offsprings to do something they wanted to but missed. They also do pressurise them to excel in all fields. There are some exceptions too. Your trying to control younger sister is natural as it is just your maternal instict. You do not wish to see her hurt or a loser. In a way you may also be reliving your teenage in her.

Take care

Rather then pushing her to do things which u had missed, better just enjoy with her and bring out the kid in you :)

Secondly,be a friend rather then an elder sister :)

Hmmm, I agree with both of you...!!! But, then, there is the teenage temperament that I can't deal with...!!!
