  • if he's going to break something, you have absolute right to say something, just don't physically touch him or cuss at him, nothing like that. if it's not 100% emergent...then talk to the parents. I know it's touchy, but just tell them how worried you are

  • say something to the kid, nicely. If the parent say anything inform them its your house & you have certain expectations!

  • Just get down on his level and say "Oh honey, let's not run, you might get hurt with all these people in here." He might stop and you sound like you were scared, not, disciplining.

  • whenever a kid is acting up at my house i just say real nice to the kid something like why dont you come over here and play with this... or no jumping on furniture ok.... and if you say it infront of the parents they will know to make him stop too

  • It's your house. If he is misbehaving & the parents aren't doing anything about it, you have the right to inform them and him that his behavior isn't acceptable in your home. If you do it respectfully & they don't like it, too bad, I would assume that's probably why he acts that way in the first place.

  • I totally agree with Adeline. Once you say something a time or two the parents may start noticing or caring and say something as well. GL and dont pull out too much hair hun lol

  • he is probably bored, or maybe ready for a nap/bedtime
    but if you want to tell him something. just say something calmly. try sitting down with him and talking to him. there's no harm in it.

  • I agree to say sometime to the kid in a nice calm distration-type tone. Sometimes kids will listen to other people when they won't listen to their parents.

  • Your house, if they are rude enough to let their kid run wild, speak up!
