4 yrs ago I sent my in-laws an email nicely explaining why I did not want my then 2 yr old son watching wrestling. He is now 6 and just got off a 20 min phone call with my father-in-law about wrestling; when bringing it to my husband's attention he pretty much told me to get over it????? What do I do?? If I ever go against my in-laws it starts a fight??!Answer Question

Then let it cause an argument. You have the right to expect your wishes to be followed. I'd call my father-in-law & ask for a meeting then plainly state that if it continues your son won't be allowed to spend time alone with him. I'm sure your husband is using the 'Boys will be boys' excuse, but the fact is that he should be backing up your decision regardless of if he agrees or not. If you live close by to your in-laws have a face to face meeting so that the fighting doesn't get out of control as easily as it would if you aren't looking at the other. It's to easy to fight other wise. Don't allow a stronger personality to over run what you want when it comes to your children. Good luck.
