My siblings keep looking through my purchases and I don’t like that. How do you turn off family sharing?!?

See the following from Leave Family Sharing - Apple Support

Any family member over the age of 13* can remove themselves from a family group.

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:

  1. Go to Settings > [your name] > Family Sharing. If you're using iOS 10.2 or earlier, go to Settings > iCloud > Family.
  2. Tap [your name].
  3. Tap Leave Family.

On your Mac:

  1. Go to Apple menu > System Preferences > iCloud > Manage Family.
  2. Click [your name].
  3. Click the Remove (—) button in the bottom-left corner.

When you leave Family Sharing, you lose access to any shared purchases or services shared by the family group.
