My MIL talks so much shit about me around my son would it be wrong if i suggested she couldn't see my son because of that ?

She calls me a W**** , B****, she says if i was to jump off a bridge she wouldn't give a sh*t , she denied my child from the getgo saying that wasn't her grandchild and all this junk. And now she calling me names in front of my son and saying i was raised in a bubble because i don't want no one cursing in front of my son??? really

  • Have you tried talking with her about not doing that. If so then I would not allow her to see him alone.

  • Tell MIL to respect your son by keeping her mouth shut or to get lost.

  • I would not allow my son to be around anyone who talked about anyone I cared about like that.

  • If my MIL ever did something like that (and bless her sweet heart, I know she wouldn't) I'd definitely not let her see my kids. I wouldn't even bother having a talk with her because, well, she's a flippin adult and should KNOW BETTER!

  • Sounds like hub needs to put his foot down with her. He needs to tell her that she needs to respect you and your child or she will NEVER see your son EVER again. Would he be willing to do this?

    PS My MIL had been trying for years to get my husband to divorce me because, in her words, I was a gold digger, no good mother, etc. (Yeah, I met him he was a meat cutter for Sam's Club making barely more than minimum wage...yeah, I'm a gold digger alright!) He finally told her that if she said one more nasty comment or tried to break us up, she would NEVER see her grandbabies again. And guess what? She's been nothing but sweet and kind to me since.

  • You really need your hubby to back you up on this and it would be best if it came from him. Swearing aside, it's the things she says about you ... they're awful. You need to get your hubby to see that it's not just that you don't like it, but that it's not good for your son to be hearing that stuff about his mom. Ask him what he'd do if it was a stranger on the street or a co-worker or friend who started saying things like that about you to your son. What would his reaction be then? Would that person still be allowed to see you and your son? Would they be allowed in your life?

    In the end though, you have to do what you have to do. And that may mean putting your foot down about this. Good luck.
