I don't have nephews and nieces because I am older brother in my family.

I have a nephew but I see him very rare.

I have a nephew, he lives far from here. Sometimes we share time together.

I don't have any niece or nephew but if I'll have niece or nephew I'll try to be a good uncle for them. I'll take them to the park or other good places.

Well, I have six nephews and five nieces. Most of them live abroad. only one nephew and two nieces live nearby and i see them less often but I love them very much, whenever I go to see them or they come to us I like to have fun with them.

Good afternoon everybody. I have four nephews and a niece. They are children of my three children. They are fun and cute and I see them almost every day. My husband and I take them to school, gym or swimming pool; we help them with their homework and go to the park together, where they play with their friends.

Hello ma'am they are your grand children not your nephews and niece.

I have no brothers or sisters so I have no any nephews or nieces. But I have some cousins which have children. How are called cousin's children in relation for me in English?

Hello krig,

The child of your cousin is your first cousin, once removed.

First cousins are people who share the same grandparents. Second cousins are people who share the same great-grandparents.

Once removed means that there is a generation gap between the people.

 

Thus you and your cousin have the same grandparents and so are first cousins (and we just day 'cousins').

Your children and your cousin's children are second cousins as they share the same great-grandparents but are on the same level generationally.

You and your cousin's children are first cousins once removed.

 

The name we use in everyday conversation is niece (for your cousin's daughter) or nephew (for their son); they would call you uncle.
