I really hate having my mum over my house because she usually comes in and inspects every corner of my house and complains about everything she doesn’t like!! If I have too many fizzy drinks she’ll complain or she’ll make a fuss about fingerprints that my daughter left on the wall that I haven’t yet cleaned because I’m busy with another task. Me and boyfriend dreads when she comes over but it’s not like I’m messy I keep a clean house but sometimes it’s impossible to keep it super duper clean with a one year old. I’ve spoken to my mum about not appreciating having her coming over and complaining about my house and it’s led to arguments so she kinda doesn’t come over anymore. Anyone else been through this?

  • Luckily, no! Maybe go to her house for a visit or suggest she lends a hand to help clean up!


  • I think you need to sit down and let your mum know your house your rules, if she can not follow them then agree to vist at her house rather than yours, good luck with that


  • If you get stressed or worried when she a about to arrive, just remember it’s your place she is a visitor,her help cleaning is appreciated but her nasty comments aren’t.


  • i would be annoyed too! I think its good that you said something. My mother in law was a bit like that- always commenting on my oven and microwave, i would just pretend i didnt hear her or i would give her a long stare and then walk away lol a bit rude but she stopped doing it after a while.
