How do I get my sisters to respect and appreciate my brother who tries to raise us?
Our parents pretty abandoned us so my brother's 19. He stopped studying so he could take care of us and bring food to our table everyday. I have 3 sisters, one is my twin. We're 14. The other is 13 and the eldest is 15. My twin likes going out with her friend too much. The youngest doesn't care about school, just wants to laze around, watch tv and crap. And the eldest just wants to make out with her boyfriend. I have a part time job so it's up to them to do the housework but they can't do even that. So when my brother comes home from work, he's the one who cleans and cooks. (He wouldnt let me, he said I'm too tired from tutoring even though I'm not.)
Despite all that, my sisters get mad at our brother for yelling at them and grounding them. They even rebel and mess the house up. They say bad things about him to our friends and relatives, they disrespect him and one time he got so mad and threatened to hit them and one of my sisters threatened back that she'd tell the authorities.
I can see that bro just wants to get along with all of us and even blames himself for lacking something. I try explaining this to the, but they wont listen or care.
