Hi grannies ,
I’m the dil.
I don’t want to offend my mil, who has just become a granny to my son.
I want to be fair to her and take her feelings into consideration.
But I’m v hurt from many things she did and don’t think there will be reconciliation any time soon... from my side I don’t see myself trusting her ever again.. and am protective of my child because of things she did in the past when I was pregnant and miscarried.. I don’t feel respected as a mother or a wife and don’t wanna cause myself further stress.
However I want to know how I can help her have a healthy relationship with my son, without having to force myself into a relationship with her (I’m formal)... and without risking that she might have a relationship with my son that excludes me ( aka teach him to contradict me and so on..
He is a newborn still but first impressions count.
She is coming for a month and a half to stay in her own house (she is an expat) ..
I need advice because with the amount of hurt I have I struggle to have empathy .
