She sounds stressed and worse....she sounds like one of those moms who puts a little too much emphasis on you being the oldest which means she expects more from you. You're a kid too, not your siblings mother. BUT, you should help out too to be nice. It's a fine line to do both well. If things truly get bad with yelling, remind her you're just a kid too not an adult with all these kids relying on you to take the blame for. Hopefully she'll see shes being unfair.
