At my wits end..

My Youngest sister (7) has been babied all her life! well I watch her (and my other sister[13]) when my mom works so my mom doesn't have to pay anyone. Well I've gotten into heated arguments with my mother because My sister (7) Constantly tells me she doesn't have to mind me. Im not her boss She has actually smacked kicked and hit me and not only me BUT MY DAUGHTER ALSO!! But whenever i try to tell my mom she says well what do you want me to do about just don't be a bitch to her and she probably wouldn't act like that when Honest to god i ask her to pick up her cereal bowl or snack mess and its shutup your not my boss you stupid brat and when i get stern with her she kicks and whatnot! I don't know what to do and the worst part about all this is now my daughter is picking up on everything her aunt does and especially on the eff you i don't have to mind attitude my daughter is only 2 and she is still learing and i don't want her thinking its okay to treat anybody like that! So my question isn't how can I deal with my mom and her brat of a kid( but advice would be appreciated) but how can i make sure my daughter doesn't end up like that?

  • First of all, it's your house your rules! If your sister doesn't follow your rules she can leave. If your mother doesn't want to listen to you, she can find another sitter. That's how I would handle that. Good luck!

  • Your daughter is going to start this too, because she see what your sister is doing. Your mother should help out. If your mother don't do something now this child is going to be a hand full when she gets older. Good luck.

  • everytime she acts up, put her in the coner...then do something fun with the other kids, it sounds mean, but sooner or later she will realize that the worse she act, the less fun she will have.
