Thank goodness this weekend is about over! My sister and her two sons came in for a visit Friday night and left this afternoon. And while I love them all dearly, I'm glad to see this visit come to an end. Her youngest, now three, is quite a handful, to put it mildly. I have three daughters, each one was hit, pinched, and bitten by the little terror. If that were not enough, whenever he passed within arms legth of the M80s or the vp150, he would yank off the grill and push in the dust covers. This happened at least 4 times. The last one was a real pain to pop out. Now, my daughters are all fine but how about my other babies? Any damage done?

Man that sucks to hear. I think I would send my sister a bill for each driver that was damaged.

Don't know if any damage was done to the driver. How can I tell? He pushed in the dust cover a couple of times. It's back to normal now but it is not as firm as the others.

Will this effect performance?

Probably not, but just to teach them a lesson (and to be sure yourself) I'd replace the drivers and send them a bill.

This is PRECISELY why God invented duct tape. I admire your patience. I would have either crushed his head in the first seven minutes or thrown him AND my sister out into the street.

Ray i am appalled at your suggestion of duct tape. i would figure a man of your wise years would know that staples is a much more secure way to restrain a child. about 35-50 staples through the outer edge of the childs clothing to any wall in the house should have worked fine. and would not leave the sticky residue to clean up.

At that age you have to blame the parent for the child's behavior. Next time perhaps you should limit them to visiting you in your garage.

Staggering. Simply Staggering.
Even with years of working on anger management I would have gone ballistic.
There are plenty of good suggestions above (I particularly like the staples!) but you might consider simply forwarding this thread on to your sister.
Does she not realize the effect that the little monster is having on everyone else?
I love my sister, and I love her two girls, but when they get out of control I suddenly morph into my Grandfather that kept all of us in line, and scare the living S**t out of them!
Sorry about the speakers man...
Hope they survived.
