Toxic mother in laws

Kelly - posted on 07/27/2016 ( 2 moms have responded )




She abuses, sabotages and tries to ruin our relationship in front of my son. Yes he may not understand yet as he is 8 months but this is a habit and needs to stop for the sake of my son for when he does start understanding. She has now gone thus far as to tell stories about me and falsely accuse me things because i laid down boundaries. Now i am evil? Really? She somehow also likes to tell me whats going to be what when it comes to my son and since the day he was born she shows all signs of obsession and that she wants him for herself. Like its a second chance. Please help as my gut is throwing me red flags that this woman is dangerous

Kelly, I am sorry that you are going through this situation. There have to be boundaries set in this relationship. Even if she wants a "second chance" in raising a son, she is not the child's mother. It may be very hard but you need to be firm and consistent. I had to say no to my mother-in-law a few times. She was becoming overwhelming at times and it actually helped. It felt good to stand firm in how I wanted to raise my child. No one should come against how you decide to raise your baby. Here is an excellent resource I would like to share with you.

Is your husband doing anything about this? His mom, his place to deal with it.

In the meantime, I would control the situation by not having her over your house, but visiting hers. So when issues arise, you can just leave instead of trying to make her leave your home. If you live in her house (you have not said either way) then its time to move out.
