Actually I ,love my sister a lot.I had been lonely for seven years and then i was gifted with my sister.She has always been like a daughter than a sister.There are some real good memories and some not so good too.Now i live away from then as i am married and a mum.?I often get my daughter to speak to my mum and sis.But it is difficult for-them to understand her because of her accent.So my sister tells my daughter to speak in my native language.Now once or twice it is OK but she kept on telling my daughter and i saw that my daughter was getting disheartened because she really wanted to speak to her aunt and her aunt was taunting her.I have decided to not let them speak now.What does my sister think of herself.Staying in India she speaks English why doesn't she speak in her native language.She teaches, so tell her to teach in her language to her so called students.I am really perturbed by this and really next time i am going to give her a piece of my mind if she ever starts this rubbish again with my daughter.I think i am right in standing for my daughter.What do u friends think??

you should always stand up for your daughter. Your sister should no better than to tell your daughter to speak a different way then she thinks is right. as long as your daughters happy and you dont care then she should be happy. Tell your daughter not to let other people upset her or make fun of her because she is perfect in her own way and if her aunt cant except that then she shouldnt be in her neices life. Theres nothing wrong with speaking a different way then other people!!!

coolimrose I think the most important thing to keep in mind is she is family and feuds are simply not worth the time or energy. Every family seems to have some moments of disagreement and then eventually all is forgotten..or in some cases, tragically, the family falls apart. I think the issue here with your daughter needs to be resolved quickly and it doesn't reall matter who is ..does it really matter which language ypur daughter uses?? Isn't the important point that they communicate??

I think that it is such a small thing to fight about. But nevertheless, it is fine to speak to her and tell her how you and your daughter feels whenever she says the same thing.

Hi, I think you should take your daughter's side. Your sister should try to understand your daughter's difficulty of talking in sister's native language. Instead of taunting your sister should try to teach native language to your daughter slowly, lovingly and taking her into confidence. I think you also tell your sister softly and not rudely the difficulty your daughter have.
