  • I am afraid you are going to have to deal with the mom in order to take her.......

  • Call your sister and ask if your neice is still going with you. That is a yes or no answer. If she says no, just say ok and hang up. If the answer is yoes tell her when you ar c omming and droping her back off.

  • Did you give her an exact a time? I mean for her late could be 7-8 pm and to you could be even later.

  • Which relationship is more important to you? Do you want to have a good, solid relationship with your niece, or keep the peace between you and your sister?
    Work on clear communication. Call your sister, ask if the girl can go with you and all those other girls to the studio. Tell her exactly when you think you'll be home, and that you'll text her if something comes up to make you later. If she says fine, great! If she says no, too bad for now. Remain calm and positive. Was your sister always so emotional, or is this unusual behavior for her? Could she be going through something right now? Divorce, move, miscarriage? Send her a quick email several times a week, or a text. Try to keep in touch and build the relationship. Relationships are in constant change. WE are either growing closer together or farther apart. Relationships never stand still.
