i was at my parents place today, we were having a great day, my husband, father, and sisters boyfriend were playing poker, my sister took a nap, and my mother and i were getting ready for supper while our sons played on the floor. everything was great my brother (who is 4 btw) hit my son (who is 2), my mom asked my dad to but my brother in time out, which again was fine until my brother started saying bad things he said that he wanted Dereck (my son) to go to a bad place my father gave him a tap on the mouth after saying this 4 or 5 times. then my sister charged in yelling at my father telling him to take one of his pills (anti depressants) after this i grabbed my sons and got out of the way. i put on a movie because my boys dont need to hear their grandfather yelling. all pf this ends with him kicking her and her freeloading boyfriend out of the house and him storming out.

and then after all this my brother hits my son again then my husband scolds him and my brothers in the kitchen crying about my husband hitting him next thing i know my sister has pushed my husband across the room (and im not exaggerating) there was again a little arguing my husband ended up apologizing and she blew him off saying that hes dead to her (which has really upset him) among other awful things.

these things dont happen a lot but my brother hurting my son does. all my son wants to do is play with his uncle. oh and what my brother does is pretty much unprovoked.

now he is talking about fixing up our place a bit, selling it and buying closer to his family i am close to my family and they live an hour away. should i let him do this or insist we stay near my parents?? my problem is that my sister in law is loose with money where we cant be and my son might expect the same things they get. and my mother in law is sooo against buying things used (most things i buy are used) let me know your opinion please

Don't make a decision based on one blow up. Right now wounds are fresh and tempers are hot. This isn't the greatest time of year to sell a house either. I would wait until spring or summer and see how things are then. Maybe make some improvements that you'd want done whether you're staying or going. Things may be better, worse or the same in a few months. Don't burn bridges yet.
