My SIL got very angry at my husband on Thanksgiving. He parked in the middle of the driveway and she completely lost it because when her friend got there, there was no room for him to park. She yelled at him, picked up a crow bar and wanted to hit him, threw leave bags all over our van, tried to break the back windshield, spit on it, cussed up a storm. When my husband tried to call the police, she hit him in the face. So he held her down until she promised to leave. Obviously, she has anger and some kind of drug issues. She is 34 and lives with my MIL and FIL.
NOW, my MIL says we are very 'un-Jesus-like' and unforgiving because we say we will not expose ourselves or our 3 children (7, 5, and 2) to her until she has been gotten very involved counseling and detox.
My in-laws will not come over to our house because she says we have to learn to forgive. I say we are not MAD, but we cannot allow our children around this again until she has gotten help.
PLEASE give me your very honest thoughts. My 7 yo is very upset and I believe he is blaming us because my mil told him that he could have his present but only if we came over to her house.
I don't like someone saying i am unforgiving and I am frustrated because she doesn't seem to understand why I cannot expose my children to this, or risk my husband holding his sister down again, and then if we call the cops, she may try to counter and get HIM arrested.

There is no way I would submit my children to that ever again. If your inlaws want to see your kids, they can come to you - without the psycho SIL. If the don't like it, oh well.
