I need some advice! I am getting married to my fiance in May and we have an 8 month old baby together. The issue is with us being new parents we are very protective when it comes to our LO (Little One) and have decided to raise her how we think would be best. My parents smoke, drink and their house is in no way setup for a baby. My fiances parents on the other hand have 10 grand-kids, they have everything my LO would need to be comfortable and they don't smoke, drink and are frequent church going people. Don't get me wrong, I love my family even with all their flaws but I want to raise my LO differently than I was raised. My parents are so upset that his family gets to watch her on occasion and if my parent want to watch her they have to come to my home. This is taking such a toll on me because I don't like to make anyone upset but I am sticking to my guns when it comes to my daughter. They now think I am trying to keep them from her which is not the case at all and they are saying nasty things about my fiance and his family. I don't know how to make them understand.
