Here is a small intro about me, I´m a 22 year-old mom I´m married and we have a 2 year-old, we live at my parents because my job its 10 minutes away and my mom takes care of my son, my husband and I both work from monday to friday, so we leave 6.30 am and we get back home 6.30 pm.
So I need some advice, 2 days ago I had a huge argument with my parents because my son had a tantrum (it´s always the same at eating time) and he hit me in the arm although I do not know if by accident, my husband got upset so he went upstairs, scoled him and gave him time out, then suddenly my dad said to me: "you see what you´ve caused" and my mom: " he shouldn´t scoled him" and then they started bombarding me, saying that we are not taking good care of our son and that's not right what we do, he just needs attention and that since my mom takes care of him 80% of the day, who really educates him is she, I obviously got angry because I would love staying at home with him everyday, but I also need to work, We always take time to share with him during bath time, play, eating together at bedtime, and almost every weekend we go to the zoo, the carousel, the go karts or the park. I understand that they love their grandson but I can´t understand is why are they complaining about how we raise him I love my parents but I believe is not of their business, what do you think?
I know its a little long sorry!
