I'm currently living with my in-laws. I have talked to my husband before about how they do nothing to discipline the grandkids, and they are out of control. Well yet another weekend they have all these kids, and they decide to finally get on to one. Of course its my son. It's been like this forever, Something goes wrong and its my sons fault! I'm not saying this just because he's mine, i've watched it. I've seen the others break something make a mess, do something they shouldn't and it never fails my son is blamed. Today he got into something, and my FIL spanked him. I'm here, I can handle it. But not 20 min. later the oldest hits my 7 month old in the face with a ball, and nothing! She gets a hey stop that and thats it. Which of course she didn't, and nothing was done. Your gonna spank one, spank all. Don't pick favorites. I guess more of a vent.Answer Question

How about move out of their house and you won't have that problem. It's not a grandparent's job to discipline their grandkids.

I personally don't think grandparents should spank. I think that's the responsibility of the parents if they choose to discipline like that.
I do think that maybe all the parents need to have a talk with your in laws about what is and is not appropriate as well as what is and is not a pushable offense. Then consistency needs a priority. This needs to VOICED to them or this is just going to end up in a big disaster.

If you are living in the home and contributing you should be able to discipline in your home not only yours but the others too.
