Once your newest addition is born, everyone from your parents and siblings to your in-laws will want to spend time with that little cutie. While most of these interactions are full of love and good intentions, it doesn’t mean there won’t be moments that make us want to pull our hair out.
When dealing with our own families, most don’t feel shy about vocalizing our needs and opinions. It can be harder to broach these topics with in-laws, especially if you have difficulty communicating or your relationship is already strained.
If thinking about this gives you anxiety, try to keep your cool and focus on actions you can take rather than worrying. Many parents have been in your shoes before, and the best way to navigate these situations is by setting clear boundaries early on.
