Family Relationships: Overbearing Mothers
Everything was fine when she moved away—stress-free. But just recently she moved back. She asked me if she could live near me, which I wasn't too sure about but said whatever. But I didn't think she'd move as close as five houses down from me! Why not move in with me, gosh! Now she comes over all the time without even having the common sense to call first and takes my kids for really long walks without me and without even telling me. She also will come over and just start going through my house, telling me what to do with my kids. I don't mind her comments or thoughts, but this is my family and I will raise my kids as my husband and I see fit.
My husband keeps telling me that she is crossing the line and I should say something. I know this but I just don't know how to tell her that I just do not trust her with my kids and to stop doing things in my house without consulting me or my husband. I'm afraid that she will blow up and try to take my kids or break into my house again. Don't know how to let her know without this all blowing up. HELP!!
