My husbands sister is 15.. she is not a bad kid (mostly stays home watching cartoons,etc) but she is very disrespecctful to her parents and does NOT listen to them.. I have never said anything but I dont want my children to think it is ok to ignore me or to tell me no, etc. so i want to know that if they are at my house.. and they tell her to do something and she doesnt (and they do the usual and let her do as she wants) do i have the right to say something? for ex. the other day my 3 yr old was on ther trampoline and my sil (15 yr old) got on it also.. my mil told her to take her shoes off and my sil replies with no, i think i am just going to leave them on.. my mil says alright then.. could i say no, if you cant take your shoes off like you were asked then you can get off the trampoline.. i dont want to cross the line but it kills me to watch her disobey them EVERYDAY and even more when in front of my children

When other peoples children act up I talk about their behavior with my kids later. Ask them what they thought of the situation and then tell them how the child should have acted and praise them for being good. I think if you talk to your kids and let them know that her parents failed to respond properly, they will understand that it does not give them a pass to act up. If they do just do your thing and they'll see you will not put up with it.
