To the people who say "what about the child" Yeah, what about the child. What about the child being shown that it's ok to disrespect their mother. What about the child being told god only knows what about their mother what by a grandparent who is obviously showing themselves childish in this area. What about the child now thinking that this behavior , exhibited by the grandparent, is an acceptable thing? In the long run you need to take control of the influences you can in your child's life. This is one of those areas. As long as you and SO are on the same page you do what YOU think is best for your child!

My MIL can't stand me and has done everything in her power to ruin my marriage (10 yrs strong). I have remained respectful and continued to allow her access to her grandchildren as long as it was something my dh wanted. She is not allowed to see them alone b/c I am afraid she may take her frustrations with me out on them. However, after yrs of trouble cause my DH has seen the light and we have limited contact with my in laws. At Christmas we had not spoken to them for 4 months, but saw them at my SIL house. I sent them invites to the kids parties 4 months after that...they came, spoke little, left early. That was 3 months ago. No word since then. Giving them access does NOT have to include alone time and I would definitely see where my SO stood on this. They are his family and that (unfortunately) has to be respected!
