    Talking You should give a way for her.

    Hello~ I really want to know how to express thisÖ I tried to find on the net but still not sure.
    Would you help me how to say this naturally please?

    Younger sister : Mom, she doesnít let play a toy. Crying Crying..

    Mom : Why do you make your sister cry all the time?

    Old sister : This is mine. Iím playing it now.

    Mom : You are a old sister, need to me more generous.
    Good girl, why donít you give a way for her? (or Why donít you concede her?)

    Old sister : No, why Iím the one who should give a way all the time?

    It's unfair.

    Dear Anglika, Many thanks for your help every time.

    Can I ask one more question?

    A: Business is all about how to give way. Our compay have already given way 20% off. I think your compay also need to give way something.
    So, please do not stick to complit this project by 25th of Dec, why don't you give us 1 more week?


    I want to make sure if I'm on the right track. Many thanks~

    Re: You should give a way for her.

    Not in that context. To give way means to yield to someone or something that is using pressure or has priority.

    You must give way to the cars on the roundabout.
