question about nephew's behavior due to lack of discipline
He is never disciplined to this day, he asks and asks for things until my sister gives in, such as staying up later, has to be coaxed and reminded to do simple daily tasks of self care. Misbehavior in public places is commented on, but never enforced/stopped. He constantly loudly interrupts coversations and exaggerates, and wants to be the center of attention. If he isn't, he usually pouts.
We raised our children to be considerate of others, and gently guided them and their behavior with such resources as time outs, using 1-2-3 magic.
I think this would be so helpful for our nephew, I am concerned about him having friends, that his rebelliousness will escalate when he enters his teen years, and he will have unhappy or unsatisfying relationships as an adult based on his learned/reenforced interpersonal habits.
Anything to say or do? Do you have suggestions?
