I'm not sure how to handle my niece. She's my fiancée sister's daughter so I feel a little out of my realm of how to handle it or whether to even address it... She's mean, bossy, possessive, very smart and.. in turn sneaky, but really just down right mean. She's 3 1/2 knows right and wrong but in my opinion gets away with it so doesn't care if she gets spanked ( which my "SIL" does and I do not) anyway ...my daughter is 2 1/2 I'll call her Libby.. and looks up to her cousin a great deal! they also go to daycare together (which I'm beginning to seriously regret) my niece flants, brags, shames, and scolds you name it .. Just the other day she wanted to show off her room rearrangement the says " can you get out of my room now I don't want you or "Libby" touching my stuff". This is constant and makes for very tense family get together a bc it's as if she knows if her mom is listening or not. Christmas bad any family get together a at their house end up being stressful and for me enraging ... I don't want my daughter picking up her attitude and I really just plain what it to end.. But their mom seems to have no problem with her not sharing anything at all then scolding my daughter like an adult. Even though at my house everything is open for anyone to play with.. I've tried very hard to be patient but this has been going on for over a year and I'm fed up and am finding myself feeling angry at my niece for her rotten attitude and her mom for allowing it to be okay. I don't want my daughter at their home without me it's so bad .. My gut is telling me it's not okay .. And with an upcoming over night stay over there I'm feeling anxious and dreading it. Help !
