Question about family relationships


#1

My husband and I recently had a debate about this: he says that our children are second cousins to my first cousin's children. I say that my children are second cousins to my first cousin, and third cousins to my first cousin's children. Which is correct?

YOUR CHILDREN are 2nd cousins with YOUR 1st COUSIN'S CHILDREN

YOUR CHILDREN are 1st cousins once removed with YOUR 1st COUSIN
