my son is two years old and I have been having a problem with getting mad because my father in law yells at my son whenever he is doing somethng he thinks is wrong .When I was little my grandparents did not live close so I never had them around to get on to me or punish me so when I tell my husband that this bothers me he says it is just because my grandparents weren't around to do it and it is ok for him to do that or spank him.When I still said something to my husbad about it he got mad and said if his parents couldn't then my couldn't either which I do not understand because they don't yell at him they use a firm voice but that is it .Am I wrong for not wanting my father in law to do anything and let us just correct our son?Answer Question

I don't feel that it is anyone else's place to discipline my children, especially when I am there! It's one thing to firmly remind them of the rules, but another entirely to yell at them or spank them. I would talk to your husband first and explain to him what you mean, that you don't want your FIL yelling at your child. And definately not cursing at him! If that gets you no where, maybe you could have a talk with your IL's about it. Or next time he does it, tell him 'we don't yell at him like that'. I was so fed up at one point, I finally just started taking my kids out of the room when they would start yelling. They kind of got the hint!
