My 4 (almost 5 year old) nephew goes to his dad and step moms every other weekend and one day a week in the off week. They spoil him ROTTEN to the point where he now expects a toy every time he gets in the car, and tells my sister he hates her and to take him to his step moms if he can't get a new toy. He has always been such a sweet kid, but he's gotten out of hand! He always just wants to goober there, and says his dad and step mom love him more because they buy him toys. It's gotten to the point where when he's gotten a gift that isn't a toy, he says "this is dumb, you should've bought me a toy!" My sister feels helpless and it's tearing their relationship apart. The dad and step mom don't want to hear anything about it (they have2children together) they say they're all great full for what they get....there's no talking to them!!! Does anyone else go through this?? What should she, or can she do?
