DH was telling me that he was annoyed with something his mother had said to him about DS. That he (DH) never behaved that way, that he was a good kid, had the patience of a saint (he still does btw). DS does have discipline issues and he's very temperamental and impatient (he gets that from me unfortunately), but we're working on it. But it hurts DH to have her talk that way about him. It's like she (and FIL) believes he should be this perfect child that does exactly what he's told, when he's told (wouldn't that be nice!). He doesn't like it because he recognizes DS as his own person and he shouldn't have comparisons made like that.
It's gotten to the point where we don't really enjoy spending time with his family anymore. When the holidays come around, we kind of get that "Let's just get through this (*sigh*)" feeling again.
Does your family do that?
