Other people disciplining your children

Do you allow others to discipline your children? If yes, then who, and to what extent?

We had to deal with this on Christmas. We went to a friends house and their 4 year old daughter was very hyper and excited to see our son, who is only 11 months old. He can't quite walk on his own, etc... She was being a little crazy with him so we'd NICELY let her know..not to do such and such...etc. We weren't trying to be mean..it's just we had to control her here and there. But her parents were always there to step in... I would expect my parents or his other grandparents to help discipline if they see him doing something wrong (especially when he's older). I don't want them beating him, which they won't... Actually I think both grandparents would end up SPOILING him lol.
