I wouldn't go over there anymore! nor would my child go over, they need to know that it's not ok to treat you like that, and especially not to say things like that to your five year old! There's an annoying old saying that says you teach people how to treat you. If you let them treat you like this and don't do anything about it, it will teach them and your five year old that it's ok. You also need to sit down with your child and let him/her know that what they said was not ok, and that mean things like that hurt people's/mommy's feelings. And get your husband involved. He should be behind you on this 100% Good luck!

I would put a stop to any visits. These things are completely unacceptable. It is also time for your husband to step up and have something to say to his family about their behaviour towards you. That's just disgusting, and you don't have to put up with it.

I actually am going through similiar situations with the 'in laws'. They would talk negatively when my man would go over there, and about him and I both to his siblings. We no longer have contact with them (for more reasons than that), because we didn't want them talking negatively or making snide remarks in front of our children.

I would keep my son away from them if your family are this disrespectful they do not deserve the joy a child brings to the family. There is no justification for this behaviour, they are adults and they know what they are saying. You and your child do not need to be around this so stop the visitation until they modify their language and respect you and you child. Horrible thing to do I am so sad for you.

You as the parent have to protect your child and step up to them and say, you do not appreciate the way they speak to your child, either change your attitude of do not get in contact with him. I know this is a difficult one.. goodluck
