Do your children enjoy spending time with their cousins?
Let your sister come up with the activity since she will know what her children like
My sisters want my kids to spend more time with their cousins, we have seen them at least 6 times this year. In reality I don’t want the kids to spend too much time in their company because one of them is either snapping at her husband or he is snapping at her or my niece is stomping around. We took them to a massive park the other day and the kids were so excited but my niece said “that is so boring there is only grass there.” She always wants something “entertaining” cinema or those rides you get at Alton towers or something. My other niece is 8 going on 18 obsessed with what she looks like and her image and Ariana grande. also my sister her mum is really prejudice. Am I a bad person for wanting my children to not mix with them because of this? Or should I just accept that family is family and let them spend as much time as they like?
