We are staying with my dad temporarily right now and its becoming a bit uncomfortable. It will only be a few months until our house is ready but I just don't know how to approach this without seeming ungrateful, however its becoming quite an issue for both dh and myself. My dad is VERY old school, as in comes from the generation where children were seen and not heard. He harps on my kids for everything, EVERY LITTLE THING. "You're walking too loudly, you're not suppose to color that way,etc". Meaningless shit that has no point. Well first week it didn't bother me, he's old (76) and hasn't had children around in a long time so I thought he'll loosen up just give it time. No its worse, he jumps on my kids constantly so much so that I really feel like he's stepping on our toes as parents and putting his two cents in when its not his place. Last straw was tonight, dh and I had stepped out of the kitchen when my 4 yr old asked for more pork chops. My dad said "OK I'll get it" then proceeds to cut it up and put it on a plate. Just about this time dh was walking back into the kitchen and he heard my 4 yr old say he didn't want it cut up. My dad slung the plate on the table and barked "you'll eat it like it is". Dh came to me immediately bc he was so mad he was afraid of what he might say or do and I am now seething myself. We don't speak to our children like that PERIOD, and I really am not comfortable with my dad doing it either. I feel like I'm in between a rock and a hard place because this is his home and he is allowing us to stay here....what would you do??
