Help With Family Issues

As many of you know, I am currently in Texas visiting my sister. Now, she is the kindess, most loving, most decent person I know. She lives in a 300,000 dollar home and her kids have the best of everything. But her kids are the most self centered, ungrateful, selfish little bastards I know and I am not exagerating! My niece, for instance, told her mother to Fuck Off and took a swing at her. Now, if it had been up to Uncle Phil, she would have had her ass kicked into next week. But it is not up to me and I have to keep my mouth shut for the sake of my sister. I am so very stressed ou that I have no idea what to do. I do love my family dearly, but this behaviour is just too much. Any suggestions?

Sorry, I can't help Barrie...it's just that Uncle Phil reminded me of Fresh Prince

Maybe you should go into Dr. Phil mode and have a frank chat with your sister. My aunts have given my mom child-raising advice before...not sure how it went over though

Believe me, the only "Bootcamp" that they'll be getting from me is the boot on my foot meeting their asses!

Actually, I am quite sure that my sister knows how I feel, and it is not her parenting skills that I question.

Stop worrying, and act just like the kids are.

Not really. As sorely tempted as I am sometimes (and believe me I am! ) this is not the answer.
