Ok so the significant other of my childs grandpa is always (for yrs now) questioning my parenting and does not respect me as a parent. They are always telling me im wrong and whenever my child is at there house all of my hard work raising him goes out the window. Im really just tired of it! I just got into a big disagreement with this person and they say an do whatever it takes to bring me down. This person dosent even have kids of their own and is always talking about their friend who is a child psychologist which they throw in my face everytime they dont agree with my parenting. It really is just ridiculous. They allow my child to do whatever he wants even if he throws the biggest tantrum. So Im at the point where i really do not want this person to have anything to do with any of my children. I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. My child will be heart broken for not being able to go there and visit but i will go crazy if i have to keep putting up with all this negativity and literally having them making me out to be the bad guy to my child. So I guess my question is, Would you take a break from letting your child be around this situation for your sanity an for possibly what may be a better choice for your child in the long run?

tell them until they can respect you and your parenting cuz you are you the mother of the child. and you dont need to put up with that shit, cuz in the end when your baby gets older he will know hecan get away with anything with them. and that is not good.

You need to do what's best for your children. Remind the grandparents of just that, they are the grandparents, and not the parents....

Ya thats what I was thinking but I talked to the kids father tonight and he told me if i didnt let them see the kids he would never help us if we needed it and started threatening to take me to court, its a mess. Thanks for your comment, appreciate it.

I would. My children were not allowed my to my exhusband parents for 5 months until they learned to treat me with respect. I gave them warning then one day had enough and only allowed my ex to visit them in my home with me home. Now we are finally at a place were we can all be civil.
