Needing advice about family
I have some family members that have kids my sons age and he has a lot of fun playing with them. But they don't really make there kids listen. And they let them watch things I wouldn't be letting him watch at home. So should I be saying something about it? Or just find other play friends for my son?
As for the discipline.. everybody raises their kids different... When we're with my sister's kids, my kids know the rules are different and they have a little more freedom (jumping hale bales, walking down the canyon..lol life of farm kids vs city kids, nerf gun fights)... But they also know that's their aunt's house and the rules are different.. On the same line, with my in law's kids, they can't play with the one who is closer to their age anymore because they seem him get away with anything and they think they can do the same... then it's unlearning that behavior for a week.
I would try talking to family members first, keep it nice so they don't feel like you are attacking-I know, it's hard. But try.... If nothing changes, then try meeting on neutral ground (park or such) for a play date away from electronics where you can leave if or when you feel the need.
He's your kid, you have to do what you and your husband think is best for him. If somebody can't understand that, then (I think) they are better left out of your daily life.
