Hi there, Carolyn: I am desperate for help, and my mom isn’t cutting it. My mother-in-law (whom we see often) insists on weighing in on everything we do for our son … usually indicating that we are somehow doing it wrong because it’s not what she would do. Nothing objectively wrong, just not “her way.” For example, she keeps trying to feed him baby food and formula, at our house, when we’re trying to feed him “real” food and he clearly doesn’t want formula or baby food.
