Hi, I am Leslie, a mother of a 2 1/2 yr old son, and a 7 mo daughter. I was wondering if anyone else has problems with the grandparents totally disrespecting your rules for your kids, feeding them unhealthy snacks and not caring, giving in to temper tantrums, and overall enabling of disobeying YOU, the parent! I try to not start fights or uncomfortable situations, but of course they happen anyway, then I feel bad for fighting with them in front of my kids, who don't understand!!! We live very close to each other, so this is not something I can sweep under the rug anymore, I need to deal with it. Any advice for me???
