Am I overreacting??
My partner and I often go over to his parents house for dinner and what not so they can see our daughter. His brother ( 30 ) still lives there. He is constantly swearing infront of my daughter!! I have asked him so many times to " please dont swear infront of our daughter " I have said she is taking everything in she copys everything and Its not something I want her to repeat!! I have said " you need to have respect for your neice and stop!" I am no saint, things slip out sometimes and I understand but every 3rd-4th word seriously?? We were at the dinner table the other night and about 5 minutes after the conversation in the loungeroom I hear him yell something to his mother and say the F word at the top of his lungs, I said to my partner " I wont bring her here anymore if this continues!! its disguisting infront of a 3 year old, grow up!!" He then told his mother this whilst I was sitting there, I was put on the spot a little but turned and said " yes Its unacceptable infront of our daughter, how many times do I have to ask somebody to please stop swearing while we are here!!" She said " yes I know its un acceptable but he forgets" I said its not good enough and if it continues I wont be coming here with her. Is this fair?? I feel when I get angry and uptight and say STOP SWEARING he just laughs and sayd " I forgot. " Hes not an approachable person, hes like a child thats 30. Im not sure how to go around it now?? Any suggestions would be muchly appreciated!!
