Everyone I need help. My baby is now eight-months-old however we have had issues with my husbands family non-stop.
Since he was born his family have ruined events like his baptism taking him away from us, and have taken him out of his pram asleep and just treat him like a football and something they have access to whenever they want. I always thought they would be close to my son but they don’t get boundaries.
My husband doesn’t speak to his sister since she ruined our wedding and wouldn’t apologise for it. My husband’s mum knows this and we asked for no photos or any details to be sent to her however we found out his mum is sending her messages and photos behind our back.
She invited her to his baptism and then let her hold him without a mask. His parents think they can ignore us but then when they want to come over they just come over and don’t even ask. We have asked them not to kiss him and they still do so. We didn’t talk to them for a few months because of this however we had a long conversation and said things have to change, we got rid of her on Facebook because we said she won’t see photos of him but she is welcome to come see him with us here, now other people my husband’s Aunty is sending his mum photos of him when they know they shouldn’t be. My husband’s mum replied with, ‘It’s okay what my husband doesn’t know doesn’t hurt and I’m not planning on telling him,’ which proves they still don’t respect what we want.
I don’t know where to go from here. I just want them to respect us as parents and what we ask but they just don’t.
