I was having problems with my mother-in-law in our house, we have our own house but my wife bring her mother with us.The problem I was having right now is sometimes my in-laws decision is different from mine specially when comes to kids activities. She don't want to hit my single boy. Are you guys having the same problem and how did you manage this conflict?Feel free to share it here. Thanks.

well if i understand your problem right you mother in law is taking over and telling you what your kids are going to do rather than letting you be the parent. you need to talk to her and tell her that its your house and that she needs to not try and take your responsibility away from you. they are your children and you are responsible for thier care and activities. you need to take control and put it back where it belongs...in your hands. but do it respectfully because you dont want to hurt her feelings either.

I was suppose to do that many times but I was worry the results that will happen after we talk each other. I have noticed that even my wife got a conflict with her mother and one time last month they have mis-understanding at night and when we woke up in the morning my mother already not in her bed, then we heard from our neighbor that she goes to her sister. My in-law still has old paradigm thats why it is very difficult to convince her to get away such.Well you have a good advise and I really appreciate that. Thanks.If I find the right time then I will talk to her.One time I test here in a simple case scenario and I've got a negative results, mostly she will not talk you the whole day.
