Parenting takes the effort of every person involved in your childrens life on a regular basis. such as it can take the efforts of my parents and my husbands parents plus the effort of my sister and her husband along with my husband and myself to teach my children how to act, these are the people who are in my childrens life if not daily every other day... or it can take my husband and myself to teach my children right from wrong and how to behave.... if others go against what I am trying to teach my children (to listen, and when the adult says no.. it will not change just because you say.. but mommy (or whoever) i want to do this... i have such a hard time balancing my childrens behavior because when they go to the grandparents or aunts and uncles they are able to get away with A LOT MORE. and pitch fits to get what they want..... so Today I plan to let them know.. either you get on board and stop letting my children act however they want at your house just to come home and try it out there... or we can happily teach them how to behave all alone. i'm so fed up with having to "remind" everyone else that "we aren't aloud to act this way, or do that" when they all are well aware of it just choose to not enforce it
It definitely takes a village to raise a child. Having that village on the same page is very important.

Good job! We did limit our kids' time with certain grandparents when they were younger because there were no rules at all and the kids lived on sugar while there. Our kids were monsters when they came home, like an addict coming off drugs. We talked several times about this with my MIL, but of course she never listens. She always made it a huge hassle for her to see the kids anyway (if she found out we had plans, that is when she would "drop in" or want us to come to her to visit).
