Do I have a right to tell a dad to make his daughter behave better? (read on)

I'll try to sum it up.. I work during the day.. my girlfriend stays home with our four month old son.. she also babysits her sisters 4 year old daughter (3 days a week for very little money) her daughter is out of control.. she doesn't listen to my girlfriend or even her mother.. she's sassy, winey, loud, annoying and just won't do what she's told.. I UNDERSTAND SHE IS ONLY FOUR.. but you'd think it's ridiculous if you heard her act the way she does. the only person she listens to is her dad.. she's a different person around her dad. he's not strict, but she just knows to listen and behave when he's around.. my gf is stressed out from the annoying little girl and my four year old son everyday.. it hurts me to hear how annoying and bad her day was.. I want to talk with the little girls dad about this problem.. she says I'm being dramatic because the kid is four and its what four year olds do.. my question is : do I have the right to tell a father to talk some sense into his out of control daughter? oh just to be clear: me and her dad get along and do talk often.

This is NOT normal behavior for a 4-y-o kid
Very simple solution to the problem: quit sitting the li'l brat!... & don't bother telling dad why.

You can talk to her father about it but not in a judgmental set of mind. Try to be more casual about his daughter's behavior. If the father is interested in knowing how his daughter behaves, then you could imply what you think should be done about her. Going to him in the sense of judging his daughter might put you in the wrong position with the parents.

So your saying I shouldn't bring it up myself? I guess it is being judgmental just by telling him anything so am I supposed to wait for him to ask? Because he doesn't.. Are you saying it would put me in the wrong if I pulled him to the side and asked to talk? .. I'm doing this for the sake of my woman, and I'll be clear on that while talking.. What do u think?

Ask him how it is that his daughter is so well behaved with him and your girlfriend has some behavior issues with her. Ask him what your girlfriend can do to get her to cooperate better. Ask him what his secret is in training her that your girlfriend might use done advice on.

A great answer and I applaud you sir for being a help to your girlfriend. You are taking the role you should and not backing down. If the talk doesn't work, she'll have to stop sitting fir this girl. The baby is enough and you want her to have good memories of her raising your and her baby while you are at work, not nightmare memories .
