Mother-in-law resents my full-time job and says kids are badly behaved | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: ACCORDING to my mother-in-law I have put my career ahead of my children and as a result, they are rude and lacking in discipline.

She thinks I should have stayed at home like her and focused on my children.

My aunt told me what my mum-in-law had said at a recent family christening and now I’m fizzing.

I am 41, married and have two sons and a daughter.

They are 10, eight and five. My mum-in-law is 77.

My children are definitely very lively but they are not rude or undisciplined.

I love my job as a palliative nurse but I’d never put it before my children.

And I’m not sure how we would cover our bills without the second salary.

Should I have it out with her or keep schtum for the sake of peace?

DEIDRE SAYS: It is always hurtful when someone close is critical.

Talk to your husband and see what he thinks.

Could her words have been exaggerated or misunderstood – were they reported accurately?

Perhaps he or you could have a chat with her when you feel calmer.

Explain that you understand she made different choices and found her criticism hurtful.

And remind her you are doing your absolute best.
