I am a mum to twin 8 year old boys. I work full time and my mum and dad look after my children whilst my partner and i work and have done since the boys were 9 months old. Problem being they are too controlling they dictate to my partner and i what we should and shouldnt be doing this even goes as far as to where we choose to holiday. If once every couple of months i have a night out with work colleagues whilst my partner stays at home with the children my parents tell me how disgraceful i am not to want to spend every spare minute with my kids edpecially as i work full time. Its causing problems between my partner and i too as hes getting fed up of the constant interfering. Ive tried talking to them but they cannot see that they are in the wrong and it usually ends up in an argument. I feel trapped and dont know what to do as i cant afford to give up work and dont want to either as i love my job. I cant afford a child minder either.yesterday my partner stood up to my parents and now they say he isnt welcome in their house and they will never speak to him again. Feeling totally fed up and unhappy. Has anyone got a similar problem andhow are you coping with it.
