My little cuz (she is 22 and I am 28) is a recovering drug addict. I am not sure how long she has been clean, but its been well over a month that we know of. Suddenly in the past 2 weeks or so she thinks she knows better than me about everything! My kids are 6,6, and 5. Hers turns 4 tomorrow. She is telling me how I should discipline my kids, she tells me that since I have kids I should clean my house more often. I work 5 days a week and because I take the bus I am gone 12 hours a day and am the only adult in my home so I am doing the best I can during the week (on the weekends my place is spotless), she works 20ish hours a week and is one of 3 adults where she lives. She tells me that she thinks I am going to hell and my kids will too if I keep raising them the way that I am. I get that she doesn't approve of how I live my life, but when she was sleeping around to get her next fix, when she was stealing from me and the rest of the family, I NEVER once told her she was going to hell! I can't believe the nerve of her!
How do I deal with her?
