This week we are discussing how to handle a situation where your kids are exposed to behavior you do not want them repeating. Check out what our reader said:
"I have a family member with children who often behave in ways I do not want my own children to behave. Since they are family and we love them I can't exactly not plan to do things with them, but I worry that my children will learn to act in the same ways they see their cousins act. Since parenting is such a sensitive topic I don't want to say anything to their parents, but I also don't want to have to re-direct my own children every time we come home from being with those cousins."
So let's help her out!
What would you do if your children were frequently exposed to inappropriate behavior by other children?
How do you teach very young children that they should not act in ways they see other children act, especially if if it someone they love and look up to?
