"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."

Hi, I'm new to the forum but need advice dealing with my future DIL's mother.  Sorry it's a long story but My son & girlfriend have a beautiful baby boy and they are all living with us.  Their financial situation is not great and we are supporting and helping them all we can.  We had a few difficulties while adjusting to living all  under one roof but things have mostly smoothed out.  The problem is the other Grandmother.  She posted some very degrading, accusatory remarks all over her face book page.  I never responded and unfriended and blocked her.  We asked that she not come to our house as she doesn't seem to understand the concept of our privacy.  Now for some reason this has become a constant battle where she is demanding to be allowed to visit her daughter at our house.  she has a house of her own and keeps insisting she needs to come to our house to visit.  Even going so far to threaten to call the police (she's psycho I know).  All it's doing is putting the kids in the middle of everything.  She's obviously cant stand the fact that she can't control everyone and everything around her and I'm seriously worried that she is truly psychotic.  I'm actually considering a restraining order.  Her daughter is scared to stand up to her but I also see that she really wants her mother's love, crazy as that is.
