My in laws have made it very clear that they feel I do not allow my son to spend enough time with his cousins. However, his cousins watch tv shows and movies that my husband and I feel are more appropriate for an older child.My son is 3. I'm very particular about what he sees, since his brain is a sponge. They always want to watch these when he is present, so I must remove him from the situation at that time. This is viewed as wrong by my MIL and SIL because I'm depriving him of cousin-time. They just don't understand. I'm not sure what to do, other than having every family gathering (once a week) at a park or in our home where those DVDs don't exist. My son's cousins are somewhat violent with their play, and I believe it's because of these shoes, and I don't want my son to share those values.
