Well, having my uncle aunty and their 16 month old son live with us and our 9 month old daughter has made us more determined (esp me) not to have a second child anytime too soon. This past month has been a nightmare as each child is picking up the others bad habits faster then any of us 4 parents can stop the previous one, plus each couple have their own parenting style which is starting to clash. While we let our daughter do some things they don’t like their son doing those things so punish our daughter. They let their son drink Coke and Coffee (in small amounts) while I am horrified by that thought, but my daughter gets grumpy as sh can not share the coke/coffee that everyone aside from her is drinking. (she still has not had even a small taste thankfully.) While I am happy they are staying and are moving closer to us, I can not wait for them to go so our glimpse into the future of 2 kids can come to an end and things can settle down for our little ones sake.

  • Do some parents not think about the consequences of what they give their little ones to eat and drink?? The others need to remember your 9 month old has yet to be understand some things aren’t right but they are not old enough to realise that. They are in your house. You have the right to say that their child is old enough to understand more than your baby can……Your house your rules. Totally yours if you are paying for all the food and drinks. If their child is damaging something of yours and they don’t step in, whether they like it or not you have the right to do so.

  • When they are both yours its a lot easier to have rules – living by different rules is hard. We recently went on a holiday with a group of friends and one of their daughters (same age as mine, 12) was buying revealing clothes and my daughter wanted them as well (no chance)… she also has facebook and instagram and a few other apps that I wont let me my daughter have so of course I was the mean mum – my response – so be it!

  • It would be easier with two of your own – same rules.

  • Sounds like an experience. Don’t let it put you off having baby number 2 though. As you say, different parenting ways and the olde kid already has learnt bad ways. With your second bub, it will all be done your way, no interference, too easy

  • i have a friend that has a daughter when she was 2 she let her have a fizzy drink ( coke or lemmonade ) when she comes over to play with my kids and i offer her a jucie or water she said no i only drink fizzy drink … even at night mum get me a fizzy drink to put next to my bed.. Some parents need to grow up and undertsnad coke is not for a 2 year old. she is now 6 and still wont drink anything but coke he mum is having a hard time a kindy because she puts coke in the drink bottle and the teachers said we try to encourage healthy eating and drinking. this mum thinks onone can tell her what to do ..
