What do i do when i can't talk to my sister about her youngest son who is 6. I have 2 girls and they are 4 and 6. The problem i have is my sister's son is an extremely competitive boy and absolutely hates loosing. He plays computer or xbox or play station for hours. Even we go visit them, she also does not tell him to play with his cousins for a while. She does not find it rude at all. He also cannot play with my girls at all without hurting them (whether it be pushing them out of the way, telling them to get out of the room etc). He also does not like sharing his toys with the girls, when he sees them playing with a balloon of his for instance he will chase them grabbing it away from them but he does it in such a way that he hurts them.
His school teacher has also called her in to discuss his problem they have with him, which is the same "he knows every thing" and does not listen to them. She has given my sister things to work on with him. I have tried bonding with him on so many occasions but he is just to strong to tickle and play with. He also looses his temper badly and actually punched me in the face the other day. She just sat there not saying anything (if it was my child i would have reprimanded her right there and then requesting an apology).
This is now the second time that i have tried talking to her about it but she gets so worked up that it escalates into a huge fight. What do i do now? How can i talk to her about my problem i have without her getting angry???
