  • You need to stick to your rules and have his child do the same when in your home. At the very least you need to explain to your child that the rules will still be followed. GL

  • You do not have to be at the mercy of the children in your house. They need to respect you and you need to set out the guidelines about how you respect each other in your house. If a child can't respect the people around them by being too noisy, whining too much, being selfish etc... then there are consequences like sitting in their room or on a stool for a few minutes to think about their behavior.

  • You need to have a talk with your cousin and let him know that crap isn't going to walk. He can take his son elsewhere to visit if he can't or won't abide by your rules. You let your daughter know it is over and what consequence will happen if she continues. Don't let kids (yours or anyone elses) run over you.
