I am divorced w/a six year old daughter. I have always tried to be fair and flexible as far as visitation not just with her father, but giving his immediate and extended family separate visitation when possible. I have especially allowed my sister in law alot of leeway to do and take Meghan where ever and whenever she wants even though it cuts into my own time with Meghan. This weekend, she cut my daughter's hair from hip length to the top of her shoulders w/out asking me first. No, she's not even a hairdresser. I restrained myself and politely asked that she ask permission in the future. She blew off at me, gave me a bunch of excuses, and said that when Meghan was at her home, she could make "small" decisions like that. I told her that if she wanted to continue to have the privilige of me giving up my time and me entrusting my daughter to her care, that she needs to respect my requests/decisions. This is actually the first time that I have ever asked this of her. Now a huge family fight has started and I'm the target. Am I out of bounds? How should I respond? ANY advice is greatly appreciated.
