Is this natural or just plan wrong?

My hubby's mom used to try to dictate my oldest sons life. It is her first grandchild but I just don't like what she is doing. She had him call her mom, always went behind my back and asked her son (my husband) if she can make him look the way she wanted. And she only baby sat him and not his younger brother. She was there for his birth but this is just getting out of hand I think. But my husband thinks it is perfectly find and that to just let it go. I just dont know. She even tried to call a mental facility on me because I yelled at her and didnt want my son to go with her that day. She is just annoying. So is this natural or just plain wrong?

  • Just plain wrong. She had no right to try to get YOUR son to call her Mom.

  • Something is not right with this woman, this is not a healthy relationship for her or your son. Your husband is wrong not to think this is weird!

  • My mother in law acted like this. It's easy for your hub to tell you that it's "nothing", your the one who is having to deal with it. When this happened to me, I sat down and made a list of what I found to be acceptable and not acceptable. I filled an entire notebook, lol, but at least I was thorough. Maybe sitting down with both the mother in law and your husband and having a serious conversation about why you are upset is in order. It sucks that he is teaming up with his mom though. Be strong, don't lose your cool, and get your feelings out. YOU are the mother, what YOU say goes.
