Has anybody ever experienced issues with inlaws from India and your kids who are growing up in the USA? My husband is from India and I grew in a Western country. My inlaws has expectations when they came here and had problems with my western thoughts and lifestyle. When my son was 4 they told me how they think he should be raised based on their thoughts. When I simply tried to educate them that kids who grow here, assimilate to the western culture - they took offense. They are educated and my husband is a doctor but they have never mixed with others and so are regressive not progressive. My son is now 7 and does not speak Gujarati with them but only speaks English. My husband has now understood and to protect me he has told me to not call or speak to them. I fear if they ever try to come here again as they are not accepting but controlling. And most of the day they are at home with me so they comment and talk when my husband is at work. Then they are verbally abusive and put my husband in the middle. They use their position as elders to make us do what they want and my mil tells me “I am older than you” if I talk back. I don’t want it to affect my son. So my only option would be to go to my moms house with my son. She lives nearby. Is this best? I fear what this could do to our marriage.
