So im a SAHM, I havent lived near my family in 4 years, my mom just moved about 20 min from me.
She offered to take my nephew from my sister for 2 weeks, to give my sister a break. Well one morning, she just pawned him off on me. saying she hasnt found anyone to watch him.
He has been Hitting, kicking screaming, yelling, swearing, pulling my daughters hair, and has the worst attitude just like his mother. His attitude is starting to rub off on my 3 year old daughter and i cant stand that.
He is the kid from hell i swear
I dont want my daughter to start acting like this, all im doing is yelling at him because he doesnt listen...what should i do!??? helllppp!!!! Hes 5 and starts school this year in sept My mom has no way of getting him back to NY yet...we live in georgia.

Poor child probably does not get enough love & affection. children, especially boys, will use bad behavior as a way to get noticed. I think you should practice patience with him, stop yelling, stay calm & create a rewards chart for his behavior. If he can go through the whole day without being rude, he can have a treat of some kind. He must feel horrible being abandoned by his own mother. He is probably going through so many emotions that he is just not ready for at 5. I feel very sorry for him. He needs a parent who can be compassionate & patient with him & try to undersand him & why he behaves the way he does.

Make you rules very clear and stick to them with both kids. When you DD acts up, ask her, "Do we act this way at home?" and make it clear to her that she won't be acting like this kid.
As far as expecting you to watch him without any prier conversation, I would be having a long talk with your mother. She's the one that pawned him off on you after she agreed to have him.
It's very sad for this little boy to be pawned off on people after people. Maybe you can be the one positive influence in his life. Good Luck.
