My SIL has let my nephew, date* little girl friends here and there and he will be 13 soon,
i just dont agree with it at this age...
and i told her ...he will find hisself in trouble if he slips up one bit, little kisses happen around this age,
she acted like they dont happen, that her son wont do that lol but they all do eventually ya know??
and i just dont know what else to tell her,
would you let your kids hang out with girlfriends, and talk on the phone for ever, talkin on the phone to me is kind of innocent but he took it to the nexxt level she has caught him talking dirty
she beleives its harmless but letting them hangout . i think there is a certian limit,
its not my kid ..still i dont agree.

You said it - your nephew is not your child. You recognize that so end of story. Your duty as an aunt has been completed. You voiced your concerns and now that is done. Really that is all you can do. You may be right that he is heading down a slippery slope or she may be right that it is harmless. But in the end she is the parent that has to make the decisions for him. So when you see or hear something concerning your nephew do your duty by him and your sister. Gently and respectfully approach her and tell her that you were having some concerns and just wanted to share your thoughts. Then let it go. And sometimes it is better to really not say anything. She could think you are implying she is a bad parent. Pick and choose the times to speak up with a concern and let the rest be. As much as you love him and her - its is between them.
