I need some helpful advise on dealing with a loved but very stubborn and therefore difficult MIL. I don't believe losing my temper is useful, so I haven't resorted to it. I want to continue maintaining a good relationship with her, which we do have, but it can be very taxing when her wishes aren't met. Like.. not visiting as often and for as long as she wants. We do try to make an effort but not quite to her satisfaction and she will let us know.
She is a wonderful and loving grandma to our DD. We appreciate this. But we don't appreciate the side comments and sometimes guilt trip that she gives DH and I when we don't comply with her wishes.
The joys of in-laws :)
