But I got no idea how to interact with kids. I mean I'm 15. Three years ago I WAS a kid. (my sisters are 13 and 17 years older than me). I mean how do you talk to babies? What lessons in life should I give them when I'm older? Should I moderate all my words through this:

My uncle was 11 when I was born. The dude has been a total kickass for me. We share alot of interests now days. The man has actually been a father figure to me. Not really much advice but you totally have some potential to be one of them epic uncles. Don't pass up opportunities to spend time with your new nephew/niece.

It's important to talk to them so they can pick up on the language. You can pretty much say anything. Just don't drop them.

I became an uncle when I was twelve. If your situation is anything like mine, you'll probably end up as a fun, big brother character for them. When they are old enough to play, spend time with them. That's pretty much it.

Basically, make sure you don't cuss majorly infront of them, make sure that you're nice and respectful to their mothers and other family members etc. And until they are about 6-7 pretty much dumb down everything you say infront of them into two syllables.


I've been an uncle sense I was about 11 if you were curious

Do not dumb down speech. It's insulting, patronizing, and develops bad habits.

Intelligent adults were most certainly raised by people that did not baby-talk them, who instead encouraged them to learn from an early age.

One of my teachers had a kid that talked and stood upright from age 1. It was creepy as hell.

Really, illusions? I was the smartest student in elementary / middle school (high school? Maybe top 5) and my parents never played a major impact on my learning. I'd say i only got as smart as i was because i was genuinely interested in things that people usually discredit. One of my life goals is to be the next Renaissance Man, wish me luck.

Not sure why we'd congratulate you because your siblings found someone willing to have sex with them.

Unless you're their pimp.

Are you their pimp?

My aunts were both highschoolers when I was born. It is best to teach them, not make things simple. Challenge them to an extent. Not TOO much, but enough that they are learning. Also, be sure to spend lots of time with them. They are, after all, very much part of your family now. Treat them like you would a friend and sibling, due to the age gap.
