    Hi friends!
    My friend's four year old daughter is highly influenced by her cousin sister. She wants to spend most of the time with her. Almost every evening she spends with her and listens to whatever she says. Nowadays she is not obeying her parents and she is loosing interest in studies and other activities too. The parents are worried and being their relative they are not stopping her to visit their place. Moreover she now raises her voice if her parents say anything against her freind. How should they handle this situation without hurting anybody's feelings? Any suggestions?
    With Regards

    Hi Devi,
    How about asking her to do her home work first and then letting her go to play ( with a small reward like chocolate for both the kids)
    Also, involving both the kids, making them study together also would work.
    But , as the kid is young, it is better to go with the flow...after all forming friendships is an important skill a kid should learn...and it would give her sweet memories of her childhood ( Just like us)
