What Is The Polite Way Of Telling My Mother-In-Law That Her 3 Weeks' Visit To My Family Is Too Long?
If you are asking this question, ur relation with her is obviously not great. As your husband's mother, she considers ur hubby and children to be 'her family' and not just 'yours' !
How often does she visit you ? If it's too often, it's time to tell your husband how you feel and let him talk to his mother. You guys would have to clearly tell her that you want a little more privacy at home and would appreciate shorter visit . It's not really possible to convey the message without her feeling bad about it.
If you don't want to talk to her like that, maybe you can remind her that leaving her house for such a long time may make it easy for thieves to get away with any valuables that she has .. Or tell her that you guys are going on a vacation and have already booked your tickets !
Oh..no, no, no! You don't! Your husband does.
But, in the end, isn't it better to make the best of the situation and preserve your quality of time with your husband (I'm guessing that since you're the one asking the question, that he's o.k. with the visit), and try to find something positive to focus on during the visit? In-law relationships are tough, but upset in your relationship is tougher. And we all know that if mamma's not happy, no one is happy.
Honesty is the key

Why do parents get upset that their child/children have lied to them? Why was it okay for them to lie on their behalf? Do you as a parent firmly believe it's a difference between a little white lie, a good lie, or a partial lie?

How to have a polite mother-in-law/daughter-in-law relationship when the two are so different
by John 5 years ago
So I have a six-year-old daughter who constantly lies. It has gotten to the point where I can't believe a word that comes out of her mouth. I've tried very hard to teach her how important telling the truth is and that it is a safety issue, but nothing is helping. I've just set up an appointment for...

I felt that it was best because if I felt that guilty it was better to open up to him..
