Neither. My sister is... Well, I hate to say it, but she's sheeple and isn't intersted in reading anything that isn't related to SIMS or WOW. My father in law is 76... Lol! My mother has passed and so has my MIL. My MIL always gave great advice about DH, though! : ) I miss her! : *(

His....not mine....just to give an example why....when my oldest DD was potty training.....my mother screamed and yelled at me (I was living with her at the time) about the method I was using to potty train.....I wasn't doing it right.....I HAD to do it her way....as I lived under her roof....(her reasoning, not mine).   Thus I went through 3 weeks of potty training hell....trying to do it her way.   After my place was completed and I was able to move out....I switched back to the method I had started using to begin with.....she was completely out of diapers even at night....with-in 3 days!!

My mother is too much of a "right-fighter" for me to take any of her advice when it comes to my children.  I remember what it was like growing up with a mother who could not be satisfied....don't want that for my children.

Kinda both. Best advice from my mom and his stepmom is good but things from his mom and aunt and that sides grandparents not so great. My dads side of the family is horrible with advice too
