The 3.5 year old child is beautiful. She has got some used beautiful dresses from one of my cousin's older child which she loves to wear in the house.
My parents and the child's father constantly keep on praising her hair, her dress, her looks etc.
When I have to praise, I praise only patience and hard work.
The child is greatly disciplined, helps me with her own will in the household chores, trusts me, and listens to me.
I have tried to explain to these people that these excessive praises can be damaging to the mental health of the child, but they do not listen.
Please tell me what I can do to counter the negative side effects of this move by the external factors which I cannot control?
P.S. Throwing these people out of my life is not a practical idea as of now. Father of the child lives with us, and grandparents visit twice in a month. This time they want the child to live with them for some days.
