My sister in law recentley took me by surprise when she yelled at my son. It was at her daughter's birthday party & some of the older boys from her side of the family started harrasing my son. My son told his dad in privacy what these kids were doing to him, telling him they were going to "break him". When my husband asked to speak to our sis in law about it she proceeded to tower over my son & yell at him "well what were YOU doing to them!" "You haven't exactly been an angel." That's when we said, ok...this ends! The fact that she attacked my son instead of realize that he was one kid opposed to their 7 kids they brought! Out of those 7, 3-4 were being rude & harassing him. I'mupset that she attacked my son. After all we do for her. I was supposed to watch my niece this summer but ever since then, we have not spoken. She is on my fb & we ignore each other, it's uncomfortable to me that she has not apologized. I don't think she knows that she is in the wrong. It is a hard situation because her daughter is my only neice. My brother passed away a few years ago & she is all we have left of him. This is not the first time my SIL has flipped out on my son though. She was firm in believing that she was not wrong the last time either. It hurts me that I treat her daughter like my own & she easily can flip out on mine. I just want her to apologize...acknowledge it. something!
