My grandson constantly acts out: Advice?

Hey ladies and gents…lol I need some advice. And quick. …I have a daughter who has a son. He’s 1. And I have a 2 yr old. So 11 months apart. I watch my grandson while my daughter works. This kid is horrible. Don’t get me wrong. I love him more than anything. But when my grandson is here…along with my 2 yr old. They constantly fight. Fight over toys and whatever else is lying around. My son hates when my grandson is around due to him always stealing his stuff. And I do try to give him other toys to keep him busy, but it just doesn’t work. Iv also asked for grandsons mom to bring his own toys, but when that happens…he still goes for my son’s toys. I’m at a loss here. Idk what to do. These boys r always screaming and fighting. Also, my grandson gets into absolutely everything. Breaks stuff…does things he knows he shouldn’t be doing and has a significant anger issue. With his mother and with me. I do my best at giving him the attention he needs, but it’s really hard when I got a 2 yr old as well. I’m at the point where I don’t even want my grandson here because he is such an issue with my son and just NVR listens. Iv told his mother about this and claims he’s just a baby, which I get as I have five kids. But my grandson is such a difficult child. And IDK what to do anymore. Please help.

Honestly. Sounds like you’re not wanting your son to have to share. You have the ability right now to teach them both sharing with each other. Not everything has to be shared but some things do. With both being such young ages patience is going to carry you a long way. My 1 year old has a bad ass attitude to her as well. The more I find myself remaining calm to her tantrums the quicker she gives up. I calmly tell her this is my reasoning behind it and as she ages she will begin to understand more.

HES 1!!! Lol if you cant handle two.kids you shouldnt be watching him.

… he’s 1…??? :woman_facepalming:t2::woman_facepalming:t2: That is all completely normal behavior for a 1 year old. If you can’t handle it then say you can’t watch him anymore but he is doing exactly what a 1 year old boy does.

He’s only one. I feel as if maybe he doesnt realized what is going on. He just needs to realize what sharing is. When he does stuff I would maybe start the please and thank you. He is only 1 and your son is 2. They’re not going to act like 5 and 6 year olds. It’ll be fine. :heart: Hope this helps

Hes fucking 1. And you of all should know that. How is it her fault you had a kid at an older age… Sounds like you just dont wanna watch him and deal with it. So do yourself amd that baby a favor. And dont watch him anymore.

Ok guys… she’s already tried teaching them to share. Is there something they both like doing that requires them to be a team? They need to learn team work. You also need to be the in between. Although they may not like each other, at this age you need to tell them when away from each other how much the other cares for them. You be the developer. If they know the other doesn’t like them, regardless the age, it creates a hostile environment. And unfortunately if your grandson is breaking things, you’ll need to keep a closer eye on him & teach him the meaning of gentle. Both with physical items and with him and his uncle.

Are you sure its him and not YOU ? He’s 1 ! Even your son is older than he is ! C-mom you’re a mother AND grandmother. Kids fight over toys , that’s what they do . You know this . Don’t be sour to your grandson. Even though you went and had a baby at at an older age doesnt mean you get to pick and choose. If that’s that case maybe you & your daughter should go separate ways.
How you’re wording this sounds atrocious. Grow up . You make it sound as if your 2 year old is a saint lmao . I bet he really isnt :woman_shrugging: . Maybe its him who’s actually causing the fuss . He is in fact older .

Everyone else’s kids will always be worse then our own lol he’s your grandson and he is only one, my god if my mother complained like this about my one year old she wouldn’t be watching him anymore, if you have 5 kids you clearly should know how to deal with this instead of complaining about it, it just sounds like you want an excuse not to watch him anymore :woman_shrugging:t2:

Kids need to be taught how to play and share. You will have to play with them for a couple weeks until they get the hang of it. I know you wont get much done during that time. Have your daughter take your little one on her day off in order to catch up on chores.
