What is the worst thing your Mother-In-Law has done to you or your children?
I'm very lucky; I have a wonderful mother-in-law. But when I was first married she undermined my ability to be a good housewife. I forgave her because she didn't know any better.
The worst thing my now ex mother-in-law did was when she tried to make my daughter her own because she had two boys but really wanted a girl but she knew that before she had her tubes tied and clipped. She favored her more and always changed my daughters clothes and then put on her original clothes back on. She really thought my daughter was her own and did the opposite of everything I said. She also could not let her son go and still mothered him so eventually she was always in between us and the end result divorce. She even went as far to try to run me over but it was not a good attempt and she just hit me to try to knock me off my feet and slammed her brakes on...my hands landed on the hood of her car as a natural reaction when someone does that...the worst...she called the police on me because I touched her car!
My husband has a son from a previous relationship and up until we got together (I had a daughter as well fom a previous relationship) and had 2 more daughters together he was an only child and her only grandchild. She would pick my step son up on Fridays from his mother's house (that was fine because then I didn't have to put my girls in the car and drive a half hour to and from) and then take him out to eat and drop him off with a bunch of things she had bought him. In the meantime my daughters didn't understand why she never took them anywhere or bought them things. I finally had to have a conversation with her about it and told her that if she wanted to continue to do that then she needed to do for all the children, not just him or else keep what she buys him at her house. She was over sensitive about it and it turned into a huge fight. It stopped that though and we never had that issue again! She used to interfere with how my husband was with his son and tried to undermine his authority as a parent but I finally got him to stand up to her and she doesn't do it as much anymore or at least not intentionally, when she begins we quickly remind her who the parents are in the home and that he needs to follow our rules and respect us and that if she doesn't give my husband respect as a parent in front of him that he will never respect his father. Things have been a lot better though.
