Well they she(mil) thinks I need to force him into it and I think that's why he's not as into anymore. She even told him that once.we moved out if he was still in diapers he couldn't visit her and I have no idea whether she was joking or not. She even had the nerve to ask if I read the parenting books she gave me. The one I have because it helps with random situations (potty training, jealousy of new sibling, biting, bedtimes, ect...) the other I haven't because it pissed me off but thats another story. Honestly I want to tell her back the eff off we were doing fine until she stepped in, but we live with her and are going to be renting off her so Im holding my tongue... for now.
Im just so tired of her telling me how to raise him!! I know ds acts just like his father but hate to say it she obviously didn't do the greatest job since she is in the criminal justice field and df was in and out of trouble with the law, regardless of the fact.df blames it on the fact his father left them when he was young. She thinks oh he's bad he needs spanked, after telling her I get a better reaction sitting down talking to him and only using spanking as a last resort.
Ugh... Im just so ready to be on our own again. Especially since it'll be easier to establish.a routine and set rules and I won't have anyone down my throat because ds is not doing what they believe he should.
Sorry needed to vent and sorry if this is all over the place, I'm mobile and chasing around a toddler as I write this.
