What To Do About A Sister’s Verbally Abusive Parenting Style?

Laura,
My sister yells at her kids and it really hurts me. What should I tell her?

Dear Anon,

Tell her that it’s easier to build a child than to repair an adult. Offer her some time off to recharge herself (then you can baby sit and provide some contrast in styles). Keep gently speaking up and offering to help. Those kids need you and your sister is exhausted and out of ideas.
