A couple of months ago I posted about why we don't confront the family members (or friends) that are toxic and cause verbal problems within the family.

Good for you for standing up for yourself and refusing to let the family treat you with disrespect. I'm sure its hard to be left out of family events but harder to attend and be subjected to

Oh, my mother even said one time that me and my husband don't know what we are doing when it comes to my special needs child and if she could talk to her she could straighten her out. Imagine, my daughter has been to several therapist and mental health residential treatment centers. My mother, who has mental issues herself, has nerve to say she can make it all better. What a fantasy world she lives and and the nerve to say we don't know what we are doing. the nerve!!!!
