I have a house that is being built. In the meantime, we (my hubby and son) have had to move in with my parents. UGh! we have lost all privacy, all independence, and our minds. Whenever i discipline my son, ie, not doing his homework, and he ends up in trouble, my parents come behind me and pat him on the back and reassure him hes doing just fine. they constantly stand behind me and totally undue any punishment or "talking to" either my husband or i have with my son. my son now thinks he can pretty much run to my parents when he is getting in trouble, or if he is grounded, he just asks them. we have tried and tried and tried to address this with my parents, and my son, but my parents refuse to acknowledge that they are doing anything at all. they are ruining what little parenting we are doing, and we only have less than 60 days to go, but we are at our wits end!!!! anyone have any ideas?
