I am eight months pregnant with my first child and we might have to move in with my husband's parents later on. The only problem with that is I absolutely disagree with EVERYTHING my mother in law thinks of parenting. She lets her nine year old drink coffee, they cuss all the time, and they let children do anything they want to the point that it is hazardous almost.
I'm afraid she'll conflict me with my decisions on raising my child. She has already tried doing that with our wedding and life in general. I want to raise my child my own way.

I think if there's anyway on earth you; don' t move in with your in laws, or parents period. You're grown, you got married, you're having a child, stay away from living with parents. However, we all face unavoidable circumstances, things we can't change or control. In that instance I would be very clear; not necessarily telling her the problems with her parenting. I would make sure she knew who was in charge of this child, and who the child's parent's are. Also, if you're living with the parents, make sure you don't ask the parents to keep or look after the child. Make sure you are the one keeping and taking care of the child. That gives you more leeway in speaking up for your parenting style.
