I have a 2.5 year daughter, very active, overly friendly, and sometimes just plain hard-headed beyond the extent of the "terrible 2's". We try not to spank as I do not believe in it, however a tap on the bottom or the hand has been attempted a time or 2 to no avail,and besides being sent to her room w/ no t.v. for time out, or the taking away of priveledges is preffered and more effective for correcting bad behavior. However when we are with my parents, there are problems w/ correcting her , because my parents think everything that she does is"cute" when at times , her behavior is what we consider rude, unsafe, or just plain untactful by our standards.....when we go to say.."no don't do that" or "come back and stand next to mommy n daddy" ... or anything of the like...one or both of my parents are contradicting us, with " she isn't hurting anything" or "we can see her from here" or trying to counter correct before we even get a chance to finish the sentence . Have any other people had this problem, and how do you tell your own parents to bud out, who do not meen any harm, but are completely underminding the way you are trying to raise your kids.
