My oyfriends mother is driving me fucking crazy! She is interfaring all the time, telling me how to raise our two oys aged 4 and 7, complaining coz we dont discipline them, we let them chose when they bathe etc.,what they say etc. The bitch is making life impossible for me. My bf has told her to butt out of our business and our lives but it hasn't worked.

Last week she complained to me because I allow my boys to run around the shopping mall without shoes on (they are always barefoot and so am I), I told her to mind her own business. As far as I'm concerned she talks a pile of shit and really needs to be ignored. I'm considering stopping her from seeing the boys because she is such a bitch, but they would make my bf a bit uptight, even though he can see my point of view.

What do you guys think?

I think you are going to have some runaway teens on your hands and you will be asking us how to control them in the near future!
Yes there is some benefit of teaching your children to be able to make choices but there also has to be structure. Children need boundaries and it's a parent's job to set those boundaries.
I think you need to take a good look at your attitude first instead of calling your MIL all the names under the sun. I can see that she's worried about the future since you can't see it. She has brought up her children and knows why children need discipline. By stopping all contact the main people you are hurting are your children! Why deny them their Grandmother just because you think she's a bitch? That's very selfish and childish, but everything you wrote sounds like that so I don't expect you to take on board any advice that isn't what you want to hear.
