My mother in law and I don't get along. Regardless of my personal feelings towards her I think it is important that she have a relationship with her grandson. My little guy is 21 months old. My husband has pressured me since my son was born to let his mother babysit and have him over to her house without us present. My mother in law suffers from a traumatic brain injury and is showing early signs of alzheimers. My husband is in denial of all these symptoms. When I point them out I think he thinks I am saying these things because I don't care for her. I have encouraged her to visit and have even tried to set up a certain day of the week that she could come over to our home and spend time with him, but she has never once excepted my invite. How do I make my husband see that it is not my personal feelings as to why I will not let her take our son, it is a safety issue?
