    Call him on it. "I'm sorry, what exactly do you mean by that comment? I'm not sure I understand? I am an excellent mother and have a university degree in (X) and I'm only (x) old...So what are you implying?" Then watch the backpedal

    I'd throw a similarly toned comment back at him.

    "Well I guess my lack of achievement was due to the the way I was bought up. I'm sure you tried your best though".

    See how he likes those apples.

    Ah the ol' backhanded compliment - some people are just masters at them. Classics like, "I love your new hairstyle! It really hides your wrinkles!" or "the house looks great! It makes such a difference when you actually make the effort to clean up." All delivered without a hint of humour or self-awareness from my beloved SIL.

    I find the nod & smile followed by a mimed stabbing motion when her back is turned works best for me.
