My mother-in-law bribes my son. I know what your thinking! We all bribe I kids for good behaviour and so on... but never for love in return. she is emotionally abusive. I see what she has done to her sons and I don't want my son to grow up this way. She has even threatened my husband... saying she will "disown" him. Normally is she doesn't get what she wants or doesn't get her way. I can see her doing the same thing to my son. This concerns me. I don't know what to do. We live with my in-laws due to financial problems. PLEASE HELP!

How old is your son? What things does she use to bribe him?

What issues has she threatened to disown your husband over?

How much time are you actually in the house around her? Is your son in school or daycare? Do you get out of the house to go to the park or to get together with friends?

It would be helpful to have some specific examples of incidents.
