My 4 year old son loves books and puzzles and my sister in law always has to say something about it. She never says anything about how good he is in his little football league or how may shots he made in basketball. When we went to the toy store with her and her family my son said "I want to go check out the books first" and she said "oh my god" like it was a bad thing. What is so wrong with my son liking books and learning?
She actually told me that I better toughen him up. What the hell does that mean? I'm not going to try and "toughen" my son up by making him fit into this dumb jock role she has in her head. Her kids are so self involved and she never read to them or instilled knowledge into them.
I've tried to stay non-controntational because my hubby just got his relationship back with his family and I don't want to rock the already fragile boat. This kind of thing would make him disconnect from them again.
What should I tell her so she'll just drop all this nonsense? I'm so tired of her attitude and rude tone.

Tell her that you don't apperciate her comments! That is just rude and it sounds like she is just jealous that your child is smart!
You don't have to discourage him from what he likes. If she wont stop with the comments stop going with her to the store and places.
I understand your husband just got his family back but you need to stand up for your son.
