Since you posted here, I feel somewhat safe giving you some advice. FIND A NEW PLACE TO LIVE. No matter how close you are to these parents, nothing will prepare you or be worth the chaos you will experience in that household in the next 5 years. You really have no way to completely change this child's behavior. Behavior modification can only work if the parents are totally involved. It sounds like they have their own unigue ideas on how to deal with her issurs (i.e. the removing to her chair for time out...this and the "excuse me" are sign-posts that they have been "trained" by some sort of child psychology...probably upon application for adoption). Get out of there. Life is about to become a living hell.

Hello, imjustwondering!

It's not your problem---don't worry about it, just get the hell out of there. Yesterday wouldn't be too soon.

Don't sweat the small stuff!
