My cousin doesn't make her child wear her prescribed glasses: What can I do?

My cousin will not enforce her daughter wearing her glasses. Every time I see pictures of a cousin’s daughter, , she isn’t wearing her glasses, and half the time, she is squinting. I have approached it by reminding my child in front of her to wear his glasses. She is in grade school, and I really think she needs to be wearing them…ideas?

Just worry about your own kid. If it isn’t life threatening, dont stress about it.

All you can do is make a suggestion :woman_shrugging: ultimately, it’s her child and choices.

You can remind the mom and the child to wear their glasses but at the end of the day, it’s not your business. Stay out of it.

Just come right out and tell them that the kid needs to be wearing her glasses. All they are doing by not making her wear her glasses is making her vision worse. They’re, in a way, hurting their child by not making her wear her glasses.

Is the only time you’re not seeing her wear her glasses in pictures? She may wear them, but just take them off for pictures. I mean, if you’re not around them 24/7 to see that she truly never wears them, then don’t worry about it. She’ll pay for it later on in life when she has constant headaches (I know from personal experience), but it’s not your kid and there’s only so much you can say before you’re overstepping your place so…I’d just mind my own business :grimacing:

Not your kid, not your problem :woman_shrugging:t3:
She’ll kick herself later in life for not making her wear them.
You do you. She can do her. :upside_down_face:

My son doesn’t wear his glasses for pictures but he wears them every other time. Does your cousins child do the same? It is bad for them to not wear glasses bc it just makes their eyes worse and the straining isn’t good. Sadly, there really isn’t anything you can do since it’s your cousins child. :x

In the grand scheme of things I think your cousin making her daughter wear glasses is a miniscule issue. They will likely regret it later in life, but it is really not your concern
