The only thing better than being a mom or dad is being an aunt or uncle. Think about it: you get to experience all the amazing things about kids without the more challenging aspects (dirty diapers, college tuition, etc.). But with this title comes some major responsibilities. You have to balance being their friend with being their second set of parents. You have to find ways to have fun without spoiling them. It's not always easy, but it's worth the extra effort. Whether you have earned the title yourself or know someone else who has, these guidelines will help you be the best aunt or uncle to those special kids in your life.
