Should I trust her or not?

About a year ago I saw my sister in law put her legs over my sons when they where on the trapoling. A red flag went up in my head and I pulled my son off of there. then I told my mother in law to talk to her about it. then a few months later she was tickling my son and I saw her press her hand hard between my sons legs, I took him out of the room and left.

Then I told my mother in law about it and she said "She'd never hurt these kids." So I told my sister in law to stay away from my son. Also because the whole family told me I was wrong. She didn't talk to me for 3 months and didn't see her at all so I told my mother in law that if she'd didn't talk to me then I was going to turn her in. I get a phone call from her and she said I was making stuff up. We finally got things straighted out, but I still feel like I can't trust her Should I trust her or not?

  • I wouldn't. Mother's instinct is a strong thing and if you feel that she did something inappropriate, then I wouldn't trust her.

  • I'd go with your gut, but stop making such a public ordeal about it.

    What you are insinuating is very serious. Unless you have proof, just keep your child away from her and try to keep peace for the time being.

    Always trust your gut. I'd rather burn a bridge then let my child get hurt.

  • I wouldnt trust her if you see her doing that to your child you have every right to protect your child. You should have never settle nothing with her keep her away from your child. Your doing your child a big favouor. I have been sexualy maltested and I wish my parents where their to protect me now I have to live with it from the rest of life. Make sure your eyes are at the back just as well it is at the front.
