I have a relative that recently adopted 2 children boy 6and girl 4,we enjoy getting together cooking and having dinner at our homes however, their children are getting annoying. They walk in and it's constant chaos.They running up stairs to bedrooms start opening dresser drawing clothes everywhere,I happen to be in the shower and next thing the shower curtain flies open and I'm being bombarded with 20 questions,all recyclers are being opened,jumping on beds,and 4 yr old climbs on dinner table sticking her fingers in all food,caseroles,and even other people's plates. Who wants to hold your plate and try and eat just so she won't stick her fingers in your food and have free rein to crawl all over the dinner table??!! Their parents walk in sit down and let them run wild. All they say is," they are so curious,they like exploring",or " you silly goose" The 4 yr old even "told" that I shut the door on her when I got out of the shower (so I could dress) and I could hear her say," "she shut the door on me!" Oh and boy they were all over that almost shocked that I would do that. I love them all dearly but,how do I go about saying something without offending them and not crossing boundaries? I underatand children have alot of energy,and are naturally curious,kids need to be kids but goodness gracious! I have grown children and honestly if they done some of those things it would not fly with me,they knew not to even think about doing some of those things.Please help I need some advice.
