no te consientes

I don't understand the construction of the sentence: You do not have my permission to talk to me this way

“no te consiento que me hables así” surely implies: I do not permit you to talk to me this way

Is this wrong:

Tú no tienes mi permiso para hablar conmigo así.

Hola Garry

This sentence allows different translations but I changed it to something that reflects more the structure used in the Spanish sentence so it is now saying:

I don't allow you to speak to me like that.

Your suggestion would also be correct:

Tú no tienes mi permiso para hablar conmigo así = You don't have my permission to talk to me this way.

Saludos
