I don't know if its a cultural thing, but I have a huge latino family and we love to throw parties. Think 30 people minimum for family alone. Anyhow, some of us have educated our kids to respect others' homes and furniture. Like don't eat on the couch, use coasters, etc. But another half of the family appears to be clueless and continually mistreats furniture. While I get the idea that to be a good host, you have to make sure your guests feel comfortable, it makes me cringe to see certain guests disrespect others homes. I have gotten used to their behavior at my house and adapted by not purchasing expensive furniture but I was discussing the issue with my sister BC she just got her house remodeled and will be hosting Xmas. She has no idea how to address the issue. Any advice? How do you deal with it?
