Hi I'm corin I've been really stressing over the fact that since my son has been born my family and my fiancé family seems to want to take control over how I raise him. Does anyone else have this issue?

Not really. My parents are very hands off since they live across country but i do ask dad for his opinions on things.  In the end he always says "do what you think is best".  Are you a young mom or a new mom?  You can tell them to back off if they get too pushy.

           Do not tell them anything " ALL IS GREAT".

          Then follow your heart ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

Welcome to CafeMom,
This is your child .. don't let them tell you what to do.
They can suggest but you ultimately make the final choice :)

Sometimes families are like this.  They mean well. Sometimes people like to feel important in their grandchildren's lives. If you possibly can,  thank them, and then do what you feel is right. If they argue, explain why you feel that it is right the way you are doing it. You are the mother, and what you say, goes. I sympathize able having relatives that try to push their ideas on you.

Hopefully, family just means well.  Politely say, "thanks, we're doing fine, but if I feel I need your advice, I'll be sure to ask."

I have and I tell them to butt out or they don't need to see us. I put my foot down. Good luck!
