my niece will be 4 years old in feburary. she 's a very creative and sensitive girl. often i go visit her so my own dd can visit her. but last saturday was a nightmare!!!!we were in target and a little boy was pointing at something and she slapped his hand out of the way. of course my sister is apologizing to his parents. then while seated in the shopping cart she is in dd's face making loud "aahhh" noises , in her face . i asked her to stop and she wouldn't so i took her back to her mother, my sister, she was in line to return something. then while we're eating in targets' place to eat her and dd are standing up and screaming! we asked them to sit down but eventually ended up leaving because of both of their behavior. then at the shoe store her mother asks her not to shove all the shoe boxes to the back of the shelf but she does it anyway making it harder for whoever to find the correct size of shoes. then while walking in the mall she slaps dd! i asked her why and she says "because she wouldn't listen to me" then my sister slaps her, not hard and says "there do you like it.?" my sister is literally at her wits ' end. my niece is a nightmare. i'm thinking she is angry about something. her sister was born with neurofibromitosis . i think that she must sense that we are worried about olivia,her sister. her sister will be two this august. i should add that when we go to the park she does not act like this or when we are on the bus, it is only in the mall or while we're eating or while we're in a store.
when she is doing something she should n't do and won't remove herself from the situation, my sister will pull her hair to get her away. i feel badly for my sister because that is really not the kind of mother she is, but she is at the end of her rope. and I would be too with this coming from eireann.
advice please. oh, and yesterday my sister calls and invites us out and i told her that eireanns' behavior is too disturbing and i really don't want to spend time with her. she understood completely.
i really adore her. i don't want her to be an angry child
