What would you do?

I have little brothers and sister who get pushed over by their cousins all the time. Over their toys and candy. I had recently moved out and when I came to visit and help babysit I realized my cousins had gotten worse in taking over on my siblings items. I've noticed they don't speak up or anything. What would you do?

I'd arrange to talk with your siblings alone and ask them why they allow this behavior from their cousins and suggest ways they can stop the behavior. Maybe some role play, both where you pretend to be the cousins and where you pretend to be your siblings.  Having them handle the problem would be better than your trying to stop the behavior by talking to the cousins.
