My husbands friends have a little boy who is 4months older than my son. they both are 3 years, and my husbands friends son is going to be a big Brother in 4 weeks.
But they really drive me nuts when it comes to how they parent their son. Their son is a picky eater, refuses to eat anything they give him, so when they make supper, they make a different one for him. When they go to MCDONALD and get him a chicken nugget happy meal, he won' touch the chicken but will eat the fries, (they allow it to) then they give him the toy. He doesn't listen either of them. They say the only time they can get him to behave is with the TV, they hate taking him out in public.
And when we go over to their house for dinner, my son looks like why does he get the hot dog and why do i have to eat what u are having. OR when he gets away with running away, but my son has to then sit in the stroller if he runs off. They think i am to hard on my son, but i just think they are to easy on their son. The dad is starting to lay down the law with him, but his mom has to let him get away with it.
Do u think i could be to strick with my son, or tell them to step up a little and discipline their son. Or do i not say anything.

This is they way some parents are. They think that if they set limits or discipline a child they will smother their child's growth. They most likely will not change their parenting skills just because you say something to them. I agree with you that they are wrong, but hey, that just my 2 cents.

Say nothing. The way they raise they raise their kid is none of your business. I personally could not be around people like that. I would end up unfriending them for the way they raise their kid.
