At christmas I bought my neice a present after opening it she started playing with it then she started ripping the pages and breaking the crayons, chalk etc that went with it. When someone said something to my sil she said "it's fine, whatever keeps her quite"
Now, my neice is having a birthday party (two weeks after christmas) They invite 30-40 people and all bring gifts. Am I being a jerk not wanting to buy her something? I feel like she has so many things and they don't even care if she treats them with respect. I am not made of money and it bothers me that the gift I get doesn't really mean anything to my neice anyway. When she opens the gifts she rips them open and throws them aside to get to the next one. What do you think? I know kids love to rip open presents and that isn't what bothers me it is the way she treats them and her parents seem to think nothing of he wreaking them right in front of you.

Get her something small and then wrap it in 17 boxes so she can have the time of her life ripping them all open. If anybody says anything just comment on how she enjoyed destroying her Christmas present and be sure to throw in something about it keeping her quiet for a long time. Yes, I know it is a bitchy thing to do, but it can also make a point that your SIL (and brother) need to learn about raising a child. Oh, perfect item for inside... plastic tiara.
