My sister (she's 32) and I live together and she's getting quite frustrated with me. My sister buys snacks and candy for herself and my daughter won't quit eating them. She doesn't just have a little either, she eats the whole thing.
When she does that, I make her apologize and use her own money to replace whatever she's taken, but it doesn't seem to help. I've asked my sister to put things away that she wants to keep safe, but she says she shouldn't have to do that in her own house.
My sister doesn't think my punishment is harsh enough because I don't want to scream at her and ground her for a week.
These kinds of arguments are prevalent in my house, and it's tearing us apart. My daughter and I are going to get our own place in June, but I just don't know what to do until then.
Any guidance would be appreciated.
