One of my sisters don't really punish her kids at all! He will be 3 years old & has an 18 month old sister. He don't listen to them & don't take anything they say seriously. He will hit them continuously & they'll tell him to stop but he just laughs & does it again & the cycle continues. The other night they were over at our house & he his his sister in the face with a block, she started crying so she picked her up & comforted her but just told him we don't do hit & that he needs to tell her sorry, he says "no" as he's pointing his finger at her. Her husband don't really punish either he just tells her that she needs to do something with her son because he's about to bust his butt, which she's against spanking. No one in our family likes her husband at all, we just deal with him! Do you have anyone in your family who's kids could get away with pretty much anything? It's almost to the point I don't even want to be around her son when she & her husband are around because of it. When they aren't around, he's fine.
