I don't have a brother, but according to my daughter, they are very annoying. Create him a "limited acoount" so that everytime he wants to do something you want to supervise, he has to come get you for clearance. You can do this in the Control Panel under "user accounts". Use a strong password for your account so thathe can't log in as you.
