I have a friend who has temporary custody of a child who is very bossy and verbally abusive to my child. Everyone seems to want to make excuses for her behavior, but I have had enough. I have tried giving my child some amunition of things to say, " I dont like the way you are talking to me , it hurts my feelings"," Please dont do that that, are you trying to hurt me?" each time results in a nasty comeback from the child. Any suggestions?
They are 9 yrs old
