Do you think people at your house have the right to tell others what to do?

At my son's birthday party my MIL told my nephew to stop jumping on my couch. He wasn't even jumping he was bouncing on his knees which I have no problem with. The kid was not related to her either.

  • No! I think it should be up to you or your nephews parents.

  • Some people need to mind their own business. If it's not your kid and they aren't hurting you or your child then leave it be, they have a parent.

  • I hate it when people do that. I always feel like if i have a problem with the childs behavior i will say something to them and their parents, its not anyone elses place to say anything.

  • Well, no it might not have been her place, but if someone saw a kid jumping on MY COUCH and didnt say anything I would be a bit irritated. I don't want my stuff torn up and she was probably just thinking about it like that. Was she rude and demanding or just like "hey, sweetie, would you please stop jumping on the couch". As long as she was respectful, then I see no problem with it. Its probably the childs mother thats more upset.
