Sister to Sister

I have a sister age 18 and I am 20. I just want to know if how or what do I need to do inorder for her to respect me. I became pregnant at early age 18,and unfortunately the father of my son and I broke up so it seems that I am not a good sister to be followed by my younger sisters. And when my younger sister started to have a boyfriend/relationship I advised her what to do just an advise of a sister but then she doesn't want to listen to what I say she just kept on saying ''we're different'' you ans I are different . I trust her a lot, but I just dont like her to be like me just like what happened to me. Though we laugh together sometimes but I can really feel like there is a gap between the two of us. I like to be an open sister to her and to my other sister but I dont know how to catch her respect in terms of listening to my advices. :( Please help me out.

You can't make someone listen to your advice, all you can do is offer it and hope they take it. It sounds like she may just have had enough. Maye just leave it for now. Just be a sister instead of a Mother and be there for her when she wants to talk.
She's right, you are both different people and she will make her own choices in life. Some people will do the exact thing everyone is telling them not to do just to spite them.
My suggestion would be to give her space and stop with all the advice. She's heard you, now it's up to her if she takes it or not.
