  • what i did with my mother-in-law was i wrote down the rules for while i was gone(i.e. coloring is supervised and only at the kitchen table). some mother-in-laws dont care but after i did that, she actually went along with it and now keeps a copy at her house to make sure that when they are over at her house my rules are invorced there too.
