My mother in law lives in our home in her own separate apartment. She constantly meddles in everything that goes on. Highly opinionated. Talks behind my back. My husband sides with his mother. I feel like I am loosing my kids and my place in my own home. HELP!!! I feel like I am loosing my mind.

oh boy! I have been there! well first thing is talk to your husband and tell him i know shes your mom but we are your family! and hopefully he will get it. if not your going to have to talk to the mother in law shame on her and tell her that your kids are yours and she needs to stop over stepping you, and talking about you in this maner in front of your kids! because shes hurting the kids by doing this. and do it as soon as possible. dont let it keep bubbling inside you because believe me when it comes out watch out!! Ive had this happen twice so far.

That is a hard one. I am so sorry that you are having to go through this. Perhaps you and your hubby can see a counselor or your pastor? I think that if a 3rd party informed your hubby his place is with you, perhaps it will have a bigger impact.

Inform them there is only one Queen in your hive and your mother in law opinion does not count. Girl you need to step up and take charge you are running a home and it's not a democracy!

Well, I've been there and I put my foot down and said me or her and he soon remembered what side his bread was buttered on, maybe you need to sit down with them both and express yourself and bring everything to the table, and if all else fails, pray, pray, pray, and then pray some more, hope this helps!!!

Wow this is a difficult situation but i dont think making him choose between her and you will do you any good. In my experience it always backfires on the person issuing the ultimatum. Sit him down tell him how you feel and if that doesnt do you any good then i would have a serious think about whether you want to stay there if nothing changes. I wouldnt like to be in your shoes.

I have told my husband to talk to her but he feels like I am always picking on his mother!! I think its come to me and the kids or her.

Aw, matey...I feel for you. You seriousley need to tell your husband to grow a pair and tell your mother in law to butt out! By 'allowing' her to act like this will only prolong your torture! Nip it in the bud, be brave, this is your home, your kids and she should know better!!! Good luck xxx
