My sister has a 4 year old son who is an absolute terror. He throws huge tantrums and will spit in people's faces and kick them. He calls people names, says "I hate you', etc. He can't sit still through a meal in a restaurant, you get the idea. He's like one of those kids on Nanny 911.
Anyway, my other sister babysits him all the time and is at her wits end. He has to go to his dad's house half the week and this makes my sister feel guilty so she's never really disciplined him. She admits that he doesn't listen to her but that he will listen to some people, like his Dad and teachers. The kid stresses everyone out! My other sister wants to talk to her about it, but she doesn't know what to say. Neither one of us want to come off as high and mighty, but he is clearly out of control. In our opinion, just a few changes and consistent discipline would make a world of difference. What can we do?
