I live in a small commuity where everybody knows everybody so at times it's hard and where i live there are more churchs than gas stations.My mil made me mad we used to go to the same spirtfilled church so dancing i thought was exceptable . My kids started to dance and my mil came down out of the choir and jerked my kids and put them on the back row and said to me my grandchildren will not be the laughing stock of the church,so thats why i don't go there any more.

What a whack job. Sorry. Does she have a problem with boundaries? You are their mother & you were present. Obviously she has a problem knowing her place. She don't own that church & it isn't her right or choice to discipline YOUR kids in YOUR presence if YOU don't think they are misbehaving. Inform her of her place & remind her that YOU are their mother. I'd be more than pissed & if she thought dancing kids in her church was an embarrassment. She'd know the true definition of the word had she pulled that whack-o crap on mine in public at church. THEY are just kids. How does she not know if the Holy Spirit was coming down through them? They don't need to be around her alone anyway it sounds like to me.

Well first thing I would have done, after she made a seen, would have been to walk out of the church with my kids. I never would go back to that church again. Then when she called me or tried to come over. I would have told her your not welcome at my house any more. I probably would have told her she will have limited visitation with the kids too.
I would have talked this over with my DH to. Sense it is his MOM.
