I wouldn't be mad if my LO was told no or to stop messing up your property as long as not hitting happened. Also I should have been more aware of how my child was acting if I didn't want anyone to correct him. Its your house your animals and your child being hurt by him, you right to voice how you want them to be treated. I would tell your cousin if she doesn't like it to control him herself or don't come over.

I would never smack him, I would never even hit my own.
The most I would do physically is take the kitten from him.

Right? "I'm just going to do to you the exact thing I'm telling you not to do." Genius.

I spank my dd and have spanked my nephew when he threw my sugar glider into the wall when he wasn't even supposed to be in their room. My sister is just glad I didn't send her the vet bill because my glider ended up with two broken ribs and a collapsed lung.



I don't take animal abusing little monsters in my house.

I would step in and correct the behavior. If mom doesn't get the point, then she's not welcome to bring the child back.



I lost a friend because I this---her son broke my sons toys ALL the time (like 5 toys in an HOUR). I corrected he behavior as best I could, but told her he needed to learn to play more gently or he couldn't play with my son's toys.



She hasn't been back.

Quoting Kayla [:)]♥:" Yeah, I wouldn't even try -- I just noticed you're in Ontario... That's against the law, anyways."


Nah. If I got really angry to the point where I felt like I wanted to hit him, I would walk away and cool off. Though the only time I would feel like that is if he hurt DD. I love the kid don't get me wrong he can be a little sweetheart but sometimes it's so frustrating, especially when she thinks it's cute.

They aren't monsters, they're kids :?. I think explaining why throwing the animal is wrong would be way more effective than spanking a kid that isn't even yours.

I don't know if he would understand me talking to him. I am pretty sure he is a little developmentally delayed. He acts more like a two year old. His vocabulary isn't very good so I don't know if he would know what I was talking about. I think if it happens again I am just going to take the kitten or whatever away from him and put it away (in another room) hopefully his mother will get the hint.

You should be happy your sister didn't have you arrested.

At one, my daughter knew how to be gentle. At three, it should already be drilled into their heads. I probably would never have my cousins kid back at my house.



There are actually no kids other than dd allowed at my house that are under 10. If my sister wants to hang out, we go to her place or to dinner. No more $1000 vet bills for me.

She wouldn't. She spanks her kid and she has permission to spank dd if she was being a brat.

Sending the bill would have been a better lesson.

She gets the idea now. She wouldn't have been able to afford the bill anyways.

It really sounds like she doesn't discipline her kid at all. I would have said something to her the moment she said "he's fine."

I honestly don't think she does. I think in her eyes 'he does no wrong'
