So when we moved into our place 2years ago we agreed to have my dh mom move in with us I didn't think any thing of it because weave lived with her before. Ive always loved her we've never had a problem until recently. I suffer for social anxiety disorder I have to admit that when I'm not entirely comfortable with someone I tend to get a bit nerves and instead of showing others what I'm going though I tend to shy off to myself. even though I've know her for about 7 years I'm still not completely comfortable with her so at first I thought maybe her actions were due to my quietness which I don't really mean it has nothing to do with her. But recently Ive been noticing little things like when I talk to her she tends to not listen to me or change the subject she try's to throw nice hints to me which actually feels like hurtful hints that my way of doing things is wrong. She tells my daughter she can do things I tell her she may not. I feel like I have no control over my home my dh is just the same. Its getting to the point where I feel like I would rather be happy with my kids in my own spot I mean I cant even decorate my own home. I love my husband he does take care of us but I need a piece of mind I would like to raise my kids the way I want to I would like to make decisions in my house hold thats mines!!!! What do you think??Answer Question

I know many grandmothers who are like that. I can relate, but it's not his mom that acts like that, it's my mom. While we have never lived with my mom as a family we did stay with her for for a few weeks due to repairs and I noticed that when my dh is around she will not dare come out her mouth like that. When she asks to come over I will make up an excuse that I already had plans. While she doesn't comment on his parenting style she just makes annoying comments like 'didn't you tell him i'm comming over? how come he hasn't come upstairs yet (from basement) to say hi' 'How come he hasn't offered to come over and mow my lawn, what kind of man is that' It's VERY annoying and no matter how many times I tell her to cut the shit she continues to do it.
