How do you deal with family members who don't practice GD?
my husband and I have siblings who all have children around the same as ours. So our daughter has 5 cousins who she see pretty regularly.
Unfortunately some of our siblings don't practice GD. And we have found ourselves in some uncomfortable situations. Usually just yelling at the kids in front of us. But on one occasion cursing at the child and even a slap across the face.
I don't expect everyone to parent like we do. But I get uncomfortable around the derogatory language, and of course more upset by the cursing and hitting. Especially because I want to protect those children too.
Not to mention I don't want my daughter exposed to that behavior.
I'm really torn we are really close with our siblings. But not close enough to tell them we are not comfortable with their parenting style. I know they would not be receptive to suggestions for other methods either.
