I understand your concern. It is difficult to discipline your child in your style while being in a joint family. We cannot change others. What you can do is build your rapport with your child. Spend quality time talking and chatting to her. Teach her values using stories. When she exhibits positive behaviour give her a small treat. During the talk time help her realise by brain storming with her. She is small but she will understand if you repeatedly tell her without nagging. Allow her to give you answers and solutions. When your husband and mil are in a good mood you can discuss with them. Maybe you can jointly create an incentive system to bring in values.
