I am new to this Forum. Three years ago my dd died leaving her dh and 3 dds. We have helped as much as we can and kept regular contact with our SIL and the DGCs having the children over regularly and helping out with activities etc. Unfortunately the youngest DGC has started being very rude and questioning everything she is asked to do often refusing to do it. She is constantly in trouble at school and it is a real challenge when she comes to visit. Our SIL is firm with her but she seems to be getting worse. I want to help in any way I can but don't want to interfere too much. When she is with us I try to praise the good behaviour and clamp down on the bad behaviour but I am finding it very difficult. I just so want to help. Any advice please. I should add our other two DGCs who are older are well behaved and polite.
Irritating personality traits haven't softened - do friendships change?
Needed but feeling left out - do others feel the same?
