  • She sounds toxic, and I wouldn't have her involved in my kiddos life, tell DH to see her alone if he can't break the tie! Good luck, I think you have had enough!

  • I agree! Put your foot down. My kids don't see certain members of my husband's family (for different reasons) and that's just the way it is. Tell your husband the kids come first and if he doesn't agree, he's not much of a father, in my opinion.

  • the woman is very toxic you need to stand your ground and not have anything to do with her until she can get her own act together
