Okay, so if you have family members with kids, who frequently play together, how do you handle things when their parenting interferes with yours? Example: I'm trying to teach my daughter the value of picking up after herself... and finally succeed, only to have my nephew come over and trash the house with toys. I tried to explain the rules to him, but unless his father steps up, he's not going to listen. And his attitude is also an issue. He constantly tries to tell my daughter what to do, or is sometimes flat out rude. I try to correct him, but again, I'm not his parent and it's not my job to discipline him. All I can do is say, "no, we dont' talk like that here" or things like that.
I just irks me because I feel like it undermines half the morals I try to teach my daughter when she see's her cousin getting away with crap like that. (they are 2 1/2). So how do you handle that?
