I am currently living with my in -laws due to financial difficulties. My husband's nieces and nephews come over from time, and it never fails that that they either destroy or take at least one toy. I've tried just about every solution i can think of, from confronting the parents to locking up important toys, but to no avail. The parents get defensive or just ignore the problem, and these children are out of control! They have actually moved pieces of furniture so they climb them and reach the lock so they could get to them. I've asked my husband to assist me in finding a solution, but his answer is, "We'll buy another one." We don't have money for that, obviously. I am getting VERY frustrated. Someone please help!
