Don't even get me started on parents bribing their kids to be good. It happened to me in June when my friend came to visit with her husband and their four and a half year old daughter. They spent their days at Disney and everyday before they left, daddy would say to her "let's keep this here" she would throw a temper tantrum and he would respond, "if we leave this here today, we'll buy you a toy at Disney".
It took everything to hold back and say tell you @#$^#%&^% kid NO! You are the parent. You tell them what to do, it's not the other way around! You are the ALPHA! I can't wait to see what she turns out to be when she gets older. I have a feeling that eventually I'm not going to be able to stand being around my goddaughter because of the lack of leadership from her parents!
