I babysit my niece and nephew 5 days a week, they are 4 and 6, and they are really not well behaved kids. I have a 2 year old daughter who is picking up ALL of their bad habits, (Whining, hitting, not sharing, saying No to everything, ect) Is it possible for me to sort of re-program the kids while they're with me? Their parents dont discapline them at all, they pretty much do whatever they want, and the only form of discapline they get at home is just getting hit. (Which I dont do) Its just driving me nuts. And I dont want my daughter acting this way. She looks up to them because she isnt around many kids besides them, and they are older than her....
They wont use manners, they hit and scream and throw fits, and never listen, and Im goin crazy. lol. Advice?

Yes you can! If you stick with consistent rules and consistent discipline your niece and nephew will learn what is expected in your home. Maybe if the parents witness how great their kids can be they'll get on board too, but if they don't the kids will still be unruly for them.
