What do I do when my sister won't butt out?

Okay I have a mentally challenged sister who will not stay outta my business, or my life. She always calls me a bad parent because I have school and work to go to, so I leave my son with his grandmother. Every little mistake I make she always tells me she can do better. Shes never had kids, she doesn't even know the things I go through. My fiance has left for the military and she calls him a bad father, but hes trying to make our life so much easier. She keeps on butting into my life and I'm at my last straw. Shes called the cops on me god knows how many times. Shes changed stories around to make me look like the bad person.

Untill you've had kids don't think anyone can tell you what to do i breast fed and all i got told is it's easier to bottle feed so they could look after him it drove me round the bend sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind and just tell them straight out and there no easy way sometimes he six month and the best thing i've ever done and don't regret it for one minute so chin up and get them told :)

My sister is mentally delayed she's 12-14 years old in a 25 year old body. She suffers from depression and ocd and possibly schizoprehnia. She's already dropped my son on his head at 3 months and his back cracked, she's lucky he didn't break anything. She still blames that on me, I don't get it she was holding him the whole time when that happened. I tell her to stay outta my space she won't even if I stay away from her. I'm only living with my mother till I can fly to Alberta to start my life again with my fiance and our son, but in the time being I cannot deal with this and a growing 10 month old at the same time. She picks fights all because my son starts crying because I left the room to make him something to eat. It's just really confusing lol. She even said that she never wants kids then suddenly she changed her mind all because I had my son. Whats the difference from me being 20 haven a son n getting engaged, to me turning 25 n all that happening then, its just odd. She picks fights when my son is around, I don't find it healthy because his hisyfits have gotten worse ever since shes been on my ass about every little thing.

My brother and sister think they know it all about parenting also. They aren't mentally challenged and they don't go to those extremes, but they do feel the need to tell me how to do things or that I'm doing it wrong. They don't have kids and have no idea how hard it really is! I just laugh and tell them I can't wait till they have kids!

When you say mentally challanged, how do you mean? I have a brother who is also mentally challanged, but he understands when I tell him to just back off. If she doesn't or won't understand that she is way out of line, then I think you need limit your contact with her. Sorry I can't be of more help.
