  • Do you have custody? Does she have court ordered visitation? If she does, you can ask for it to be changed,
    The knife is the thing that might do it for the judge. How your son treats his sibling probably will not make any a big impact.

  • Back up, have you talked to her? She might be reasonable.

  • OK, I was thinking spoil them & send them home, that's a grandparents job. But I agree w/ you, I would draw the line at weapons. Tell him you will put it away for him until he is a little older. Most kids do go thru a behavior adjustment when going from one type of discipline to the next. Once he comes back to his senses and realizes he's back home under your rules, I bet he settles down after a day or 2. Other than that little downfall, enjoy the break & the fact that he gets to spend precious time w/ loving grandparents. :)
