My stepson and his girlfriend are 18 with an 8 month old, and living in our home. We have a small home and it can be frustrating living on top of each other. We do our best not to overstep our bounds and tell the kids how to parent, but the girlfriend has gotten into a habit of yelling at or making fun of the baby when she's frustrated or tired. She also is prematurely trying to discipline her. My husband and I find it upsetting, but aren't sure where to draw the line. I don't think she understands the milestones in the baby's development and actually thinks the baby is "acting up". I know she must be stressed, but we don't want to see this happening in our home. Thoughts?
