OTM, my brother in law is getting out of jail on Friday. He was in for a year for not paying child support. When he is out he is living with my in-laws. My kids have sleep overs at my in laws house, and now that he’s home I told my mother-in law I’d rather not have my girls stay there. Something about being in jail makes me uncomfortable, I don’t know his mind set now. My mother in-law was highly offended. Am I being unreasonable?

Dear Vicky,

No, I don’t think so. Vicky you are their mother and if you are uncomfortable then follow your gut.
I understand her upset but she has to remember that while incarcerated your brother-in-law was exposed to things that may have changed him a bit and he may need time to adjust. He has been gone for a year and everyone must reconnect.
In my opinion, no you are not being unreasonable or disrespectful, just honest.

Good Luck and Huge Muther Hugs,

One Tough Muther
