kid throwing tantrums

When your kid is being naughty (throwing tantrums, shouting and screaming) and you tried to stop your kid. But the in-law is encouraging all the naughty acts. So do i disciple the child only after i get home?

How do they encourage? Don't hesitate to discipline your kid when he is doing something wrong. If you do it at home, your kid might not remember his mistakes. Even if he did, next time he might use his grandparents as a shield as he knows that you won't do anything infront of them.

In fact, as they are in-laws. It always seem like misunderstanding would occur whenever we communicate, becos they interpret things differently. It was so serious to the point one of the in-law decided to complain to my hub's siblings n they wanna confront me.. The above issue, was a miscom becos in-law asked me how much is the dinner, as my hub gave them a treat. It was an exp dinner, which i do not wish them to feel the pinch, so i replied as its ok, its our treat. In-law mis-interpret that i looked down on him by not teling him the dinner price 😂 and made a big cry that i insulted him

Try to talk and explain to your in law.
