Alright I have been having some problems with my mil, she feels she knows everything there is to know about raising kids and tries to tell me how to raise my son... not just helpful tips, she tells me how to do EVERYTHING!!! well yesterday, she was over and my husband was tossing our son in the air, except he wasnt letting go of him.. well she began telling my husband to stop, over and over and over again saying he was going to drop him and it wasnt safe.

My MIL is similar. She likes to butt in sometimes. But I love her, and make a joke of it. Or I get irritated and fuss. But she usually backs off, because she knows that I still love her. And she knows I am right. (that I am mommy, I have final say). Just let her know that you care for her very much, and want to have a good relationship with her. But you also love your son very much and will ALWAYS do what's best for him. So she doesn't have to worry; and she can't keep undermining you, because you ultimately have final say.
