My sister is trying to parent my children

And it is driving me batshit crazy!

When she comes over to visit she will lecture them about things even if I tell her not to. Its really not her place to tell my kids if they don't keep their rooms clean she is going to take away their library cards or to tell my 15 year old what she can and can't post on Facebook or what music they can or can't listen to. Its gotten to the point I don't even like to hang out with her anymore because she makes my head ache. I am their parent and it is up to me whether or not to lecture or punish them about behaviors. It was never this bad until she had a baby and now that she has a kid she's suddenly a parenting expert.

Other than avoiding her completely which breaks my heart because I love the shit out of her and my nephew I am at a loss on what to do. I've tried talking to her and she says she will stop just to go back to the same behaviors a month later. I have had to tell my kids to just smile and nod when auntie comes over.
