It is unfortunate that more boys don’t have a big sister like I had to help them through puberty. I mean that’s a tough time for everyone. But I had my sister and am I ever grateful I did.
We have always been close even though she is three years older than me. There were some rough times in our relationship when she was between 18 and 20 but even then, I sensed that she really would come through in a pinch, if it came to that. So by the time I was 18 and beginning to grow in all sorts of ways that I hadn’t expected, Jo was there to help out.
