A mom finds herself and young family pulled into her husband’s family’s cycle of emotional and verbal abuse. She needs practical advice on how to save the relationship with her children’s grandparents, if that is at all possible.
I told my mother-in-law that her tradition of playing Santa before Christmas might be confusing to my young daughter and now she’s upset. What should I do?
My mother has announced that she will never let her (hypothetical, for now) grandchildren call her anything grandmother-related. Should I be worried?
My in-laws are absolutely, fundamentally untrustworthy caretakers for my child. But my husband is insisting we let them babysit while we travel overseas! What do I do?
My mother-in-law watches my children during the day for free, but it’s costing me my sanity!
My husband won’t ever say no to his parents, even when it comes to stuff that might not be good for our daughter. What can I do?
