Original Visitor's Question from a 41-50 year old Female
My brother'n'law and his family live around the corner from us and they have three children,two girls and a son. We have one child, a son. Our son gets on good with their son
and I take our son around there to play, but sometimes find
it diffcult because my sister'n'law can be rude in some comments she saids,which is a shame for my son and nephew.
We just saw them last week, but she was rude (not overly
rude)Suppose to go over there again this week but I dont want to, my Husband wonders why I dont want to go over there. If I say anything, he thinks I'm complaining, and I
dont want to start any big fights between any of us. At the
moment I'm going to keep my distance for a few weeks, but
what do you think I should do in the long run?

User Submitted Advice from a 31-40 year old Female
Draw the line

lay the ground rules early on about what type of behavior will and will not be acceptable around you. I put up with my sister-in-law being a real witch for more than a year while my husband ignored it (or got mad at me). If I had it to do over, i would have drawn the line early on and stuck to it.
