One woman at her wits' end took to Reddit when her in-laws and husband were ignoring her parental rules and she felt her children were suffering for it.
EmbarrassedMilk4107 explains her story:
We live three blocks away from my parents and they see our kids almost every day. My husband's parents live a couple of states away and only see the kids a few times a year.
It's easy when we go see them since we only visit when the kids are off school. But when they come see us it is at random intervals through the year. Not a problem really they are excellent grandparents. With one small exception. They think our rules go out the window when they visit.
It's mean that we don't make the kids their favorite food every day. Why can't the kids watch tv with them before they do their chores and homework. Why do the kids have to be in bed so early.
