My family, my husband, me and our two girls are moving to another state. My parents are totally unsupportive of my decision to leave the area. They would rather me stay near them. I want to be completely independent with my own family, and our own rules. I've always lived really close to my parents, but I think that its time to move on to my own independence. My mother is very controlling, she wants to know all the info on issues that don't concern her. And tries to rule everything, its very complicated. She bashes my husbands career choice and says terrible things about him in front of our kids. I've told her to stop. That they don't need to hear that sort of talk about their dad. She doesn't listen. My dad is a little better, but he doesn't interfere when she's going off. He's much more of a silent type around me. Now a big thing is I was living on my own with my husband and kids and then they asked us to move in with them across country saying life would be better. So we did. Mistake. Its only gotten worse. Now I have to figure out how to get my things out of the house with as little confrontation as possible. I don't want my kids to live anywhere where they see their grandparents fight with one another everyday, and bash their dad. How do I make this easier on them and get our stuff out easier with as little confrontation as possible????????????
