DH's family is tearing us apart
His family always criticises the way I parent, everything I do is wrong, because I believe in attachment parenting/co sleeping, you know the deal. I never say anything but one day stupid old me decided to go on a ranting rampage on Facebook, somewhere along the lines of "buying a gun and shooting people as I've had enough of people trying to criticise the way I want to parent MY child" .. I know, very immature, but felt good to let it out even it was Facebook as I literally have no one to talk to. This was sparked because DH mum commented on how it was inappropriate for me to travel alone to take DD for swimming lessons. Excuse me? Second I checked, what I do with my child is none of your business and two I'm the mother, I don't have to justify my actions to anyone other than DH when it comes to DD. Well, that status has caused so much problems with the whole family! DH mum called up DH dad, who called up DH brother who then called up DH, THEN EVERYONE CALLED UP DH. So he's copping the brunt for my actions, so I decided to confront them saying I was sick and tired of them criticising my parenting, it's a learning process, I may not know everything but I'm learning as I go and for them to judge and make snide hurtful comments really hurt my feelings. Well, they didn't take so lightly to that and it pretty much blew up on me so I decided to block both DHs mum and brother on Facebook. The only this is, the only way they get to see DD was through my Facebook, so by blocking them it pretty much means they don't get to see DD grow up because they live interstate. Again, they called up DH and he copped the blame because I blocked them. I want to unblock them, but I don't want to have anymore ginormous fights in the family over a silly status, and if I god forbid were to go on a rampage again, it will cause problems again and I don't want that :/ Me and DH are always fighting about his side if the family and what they say and I always get upset because, I don't have any family, my parents pretty much abandoned and sometimes I feel so alone, I'm trying my best for my daughter and feel like I would be a better parent if I were alone, doing it by myself sp I don't have to out up with his side of the family. It's been like this since I first got pregnant, and over the months has gotten worse as DD daughter grows up. I don't know what to do, I love DH with all my heart but all our fights are over his family to the point where I just wanna break down and not go on, it's never ending. Sorry for such a long post, just wanted to get it off my chest. Maybe some of your ladies have a solution to my problem or have gone through the same thing as me? Would give good to hear from you.
