Ok, so DH takes DS to his football game today. MIL and SIL go to watch. Afterwards, everyone wants to go get a bite to eat except DS. He's almost 9 and he just wanted to go home and play with his friends. Understandable. However, he needs to learn to just chill and go along with what the majority wants to do sometimes, which we discussed when he got home. So, back at the restaurant, he resists, MIL gets mad, etc. etc., SIL is telling DH to be firm and just tell him "NO!" so he'll go in the restaurant. DH says "Well, I'm not going to force him if he doesn't want to go!" SIL says "Well, you're going to have trouble when he's a teenager!" DH says to SIL who has no kids "Yeah, like you'd know." She then said weakly, "Well, I do watch Super Nanny." Really??? They get into the restaurant, DS is going along and because he feels bad, says to DH "Daddy, am I a bad boy?" DH says "No, you're not." MIL pipes up and says "Oh, yes, you are!" Ok, those are fighting words. MIL has said stuff like this before and DH says he handled this, but I don't think so. I want to phone SIL and discuss this, but he says he will talk to her, which may never happen. What bothers me is that he has been nothing but a great kid since day one (not perfect, but great!) and they know it and have often commented on it. Now, all of a sudden, they act like he's going to be hell on wheels because he would rather go home and play with friends. I am chomping at the bit to speak my mind to her or should I wait for DH to handle it??
