"Welcome to -- When adult children marry and leave home, life can sometimes get more complex instead of simpler.  Being a mother-in-law or daughter-in-law can be tough.  How do we extend love and support to our mothers-in-law, adult children, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, and grandchildren without interfering?  What do we do when there are communication problems?  How can we ask for help when we need it without being a burden?  And how do our family members feel about these issues?  We invite you to join our free forum, read some posts... and when you're ready...share your challenges and wisdom."

This is such a good thought when speaking of forgiveness: Corrie Ten Boom harbored such hatred, as you'd expect of her Nazi capturers but this is what she said:

Corrie Ten Boom, who survived a Nazi concentration camp during the Holocaust, said, "Forgiveness is to set a prisoner free, and to realize the prisoner was you."


I am going through the same thing with my daughter. Also my childrens father is a narcisstis we have been divorced 20 years but he is still the controller of the children They have no respect for me or others  It is a mothers worst nightmare to have children who dont care


you gals, I feel so bad for all of  you...but, as you all agree, bitterness is poison to the soul...

I hope you all know, I don't hate my DIL...and I would forgive her in a heart beat if she'd just stop all this foolishness...

but, I gotta tell you, if God forbid, something would happen to my son...I don't know how I'd feel about her then....

When he goes back, I worry's very frightening...and I think about all this bad blood between I don't even know him any more...what we have missed out on...and how we yelled at each other at one time...I believe now, I'm more angry with him and his father, then I am with her?  At least I can understand why she is the way she is...but I can't understand his father or my son, for being so passive...and excusing all this ugly behavior.

Girls, hang in there...we have each other, and it's soothing to know that..we're like sisters yanno?


Good quote Chickybabe...I really like that one.  I truly do not hate anyone, neither do I wish harm on any person. I forgive but in doing so it does not mean I will befriend them or want to be around them I just do not have them in my life. No matter who they are.
