Hello, my niece who is 8 is staying at my house for a few weeks while her mum is away and yesterday I caught her using really foul language in the garden in front of my daughter who is 4 and now she has started to copy her. What can I do to discipline them both for it?

Depending on the personality of the 8year old - but I would explain to her that these are naughty/rude words and she is not allowed to say them - maybe specifically something like 'the rules at Aunty's house are....'

Is there something she likes or a treat, such as swimming/trip to the zoo that could be used as a reward/taken away?

Does she do this at her mums - that could make a difference to how its handled?

As your 4yo is hearing this I would go zero tolerance.
