what do you, or would you do when other adults correct your children in front of you? especially when you dont feel they dont need correcting. this has happened to my children in front of me a few times, and it absolutely makes my blood boil. dh has an ex-sil(i never did, nor do i now claim her) who did not like boys and made it known. her girls would tattle on my boys about things that didnt even happen just to get him in trouble. i could tell from the whole senario, they were falsly accused. instead of telling her daughter to let their mom handle it, or to come tell me, xsil took it upon herself to hollar down at my son in front of me(during one occasion). i proceeded to call him up(they were playing in the basement) and told him to stay upstairs where i could see him, or go do something away from the girls, for his own protection. this happened quite often with her, and i am soooooo glad she is an x now. my mil would occasionally try to drop my kids off at this x's house to play, and i made it very clear i did not want the x soley in charge of my boys. my mil said, "oh, she wont hurt them". i said, no she wont, but we all know she does not like boys, and i wont put my sons in that position.
it has happened at other people's homes too, where my kids did not "know all the rules", and instead of telling me, would just yell at my kids right in front of me. we were visiting another relative with a baby, and the mother wouldnt let my children play with the baby's toys, because they were the baby's and my kids were "too old". huh??? whats up with that?? they were playing with them, with the baby. they were bored, and were entertaining themselves and the baby.
has this happened to you?? what do you do?
