A mom isn’t sure if she lost her cool after her in-laws “criticized her parenting.”
She went on Reddit to rant about the situation. Her mother-in law and father-in law dropped by one day. Her husband spoke to his parents about “not contradicting” he and his wife’s parenting in front of their kids in the past. The mother-in-law ignored the warning this time.
When the kids were standing on the couch with no shoes, the mom reminded them that shoes don’t belong on the sofa. The mother-in law immediately disagreed with her and assured the children that it was okay.
The oldest son, already having issues with authority and refusing to take off his shoes, was the one who refused. The mom was “livid.” Her husband tried talking to his mother, but they argued. The mom confronted her mother in law.
“I told her to never undermine me in front of the children again,” the Reddit poster wrote. “She started saying something about needing to spoil her grandkids but I cut her off and asked her if she understood what I said.”
The mother in law ran off to cry in the bathroom. Now, the Reddit poster’s husband is upset.
Reddit users believed that the conflict started with the mother in law.
“Grandma needs a time out,” a user commented.
“You didn’t overreact,” another wrote.
“It is extremely rude to criticize another person’s parenting,” a person said.
