So my friends have nearly Irish Twins. One will be 3 next month and the other will be 2 a few days later. They aren't potty trained, barely verbal, super destructive, and spoiled brats. a little bit ago I busted the 2 (almost) year old coloring in one of my son's reading books. As soon as I said her name she started screaming bloody murder like I was beating her to death. Just now she threw a toy across the room, and started screaming again when I told her to pick it up.
20 minutes after they were dropped off the 3 (almost) year old peed his pants and pooped in his underwear. There is 1 diaper in the diaper bag.
Their parents have NO schedule, NO routine, NOTHING. They are crappy parents and their kids are spoiled brats. They've recently decided that they don't like the suggestions my husband and I have suggested and demonstrated for effective discipline. They have made it clear to me that I am to no longer do/say anything to their kids when the kids are misbehaving.
I HATE this. I almost hate the kids, but it's NOT their fault they have no consistent boundaries. If I wasn't such good friends with the parents, I'd be all over calling CPS for neglect and/or the cops for an unannounced welfare check. Last week the mom "finally" fell asleep at 4am, knowing she had to get up at 7:00 to get the oldest to school. Some time between asleep and awake the two little ones got into the butter, cream cheese and coconut flakes and plastered the floor and walls with the concoction. 3 days later it was still all over the place.
Yes, I've vented about this family before. They aren't bad PEOPLE, they're just bad PARENTS. Parenting styles are vastly different, to say the least.
What are ways I can say no, I don't want to babysit your kids in your filthy house, and I don't want them destroying mine?
