My great aunt has raised many children over the years some hers and some that aren't hers. They all turned out pretty good. Shes raising her 12 year old grandson and 5 year old granddaughter. There usually good kids but are very used to getting their way. I took them to a restaurant and the 5 year old wanted to climb all over the furniture. I told her im not having this behavior and made her sit properly. She said "I hate you mommy lets me do what I what" I told her I love you to now act right. She was fine after that. The 12 year old is very good around me but acts up with his grandma. Not trouble just argues a little with her. Hes rather lazy and doesn't help around the house. How can I get him to understand his grandma needs help and that shes not going to be here forever to behave well theres still time left with her

Children will try to live up to expectations.<br />
Perhaps you could start a report card for "at home use" with a big poster board on the wall.<br />
When they got 10 A's, you would take them for ice cream ...or something like that.<br />
Think of someway you could interject positive discipline and help out grandma.<br />
Grandma would be giving the grades.
