hi, i live at an extended family household. there's 8 adults and 3 children including mine. i have a hard time disciplining my child because i think she sees it from the other kids in the house. every time i try to discipline her, i feel lke i'm the bad person in the house. my child would keep on crying and i would just make her stay inside the room so i can talk to her.

i dont like the things that she's doing cos i see it from the other kids here. thats why im getting so paranoid and frustrated that my baby will grow up to be like them. they dont have respect for elders and they like to tease and make my baby mad. my baby is the youngest among them. my baby is 2 and the cousins are 5 and 7.

i dont know what to do cos when i try to tell my partner all he will say is 'they're just kids'. i understand that but i dont know what else to do. please help. im desperate here. what should i do?

The only way to improve the situation would be to leave and live on your own as a family.
