A huge part of my stress right now is my Mother-in-law. She smokes, and I have nothing against smokers, but my son has asthma. I told her that he is not allowed to spend the night at her house any more because she smokes in the house at night. During the day I'm fine w/ him being over there. She went ballistic, and said that she would rather just not see him at all if I wouldn't let him spend the night. I turned into a huge fight and she didn't talk to me for 3 months until I appoligized for being ( as she said) "rude" and "not letting her see her grand children"...My husband always sides w/ her or says nothing. I only appoligized in the first place because he got mad at me and said that this whole thing was my fault. I don't know what to do. I don't dare talk to her again about it for fear of her wrath. Any advice?
