What to do?!
We see my sister in law and her family and my inlaws once a year for two weeks. Everything is great for the first week. The second week we rent a house to give them some space and still my sister in law acts like having us there is too much for her to take!
She takes my kids behavior personally! For instance, if my kids and her kids disagree she gets mad at me! Her tactics are super passive aggressive. She will ignore me and not look at me at family dinners or not respond when I ask her something.
How can I deal with this? I have tried talking to her and she just brings it back to our kids. Her issue is with me and frankly she seems jealous. She wants to replay every little tussle our kids get into. My kids are 9 and 11 and her kids are 7 and 9. She acts like my kids are monsters and during the last trip she was angry at one of my kids one day and the other the next. In her eyes her kids are helpless babies and my kids are monsters.
