Can I please ask the mums for advice about broaching the subject with a family member about the behaviours of their child? He is an only child and bigger and older than most kids he comes in contact with including my son. He is loud to the point where I can’t hear his mother when I speak to her, he is constantly running around my house with no respect for our belongings, he trashes my sons room within minutes of being here and worst of all, he hits, kicks and pulls my sons hair and treats our dog exactly the same! He is uncontrollable and what is worse is that even when I pull him up on something in front of his mother she won’t say anything to him if he does it again and I am worried about what it will do to our relationship if it continues. I can see this behaviour rubbing off on my son who is younger than him and at that ‘copying stage’. I don’t like my son acting that way and he doesn’t when he plays with other kids, but it is near impossible to discipline him when the other child is doing it and nothing is said to him. Please help, my husband and I are at the stage where we no longer want them around as it is just too stressful. I just don’t know what to do.
