Okay, so my SO's sister became a widow 2.5 weeks ago. She is now living with us along with her 3 and 9 yo boys. I need help defining boundries. Example- The 9 yo will sit ALL DAY and play video games, he is highly addicted and his legs are not strong enough to pedal a bike, and not hope at all without training whells. She went and bought the 9 yo a Nintendo DS because he 'had been through so much'. He already has a Wii, Xbox, and PSP. We had hidden all the other video games, so now my 6 yo pitches a FIT to play this DS, says it is unfair that these people have no money but all these expensive toys. One, that is not how you compensate for a father dying. Two, there is one DS and 5 kids. Three, this family has been ALOT, he is behind socially and with his physical skills and we are really trying to help this family.
How do we set solid rules and others and not hurt her feelings?
