A strategy that will help you guide you to arrive at the right decision is to ask yourself which boundaries are for your child and which ones are for your in-laws. Of course, as a parent, your objective is to do whatever will benefit your child.
Furthermore, have patience. Even when your in-laws do agree to the boundaries you put forth, it’ll take time for them to adjust. There may be a few slip-ups on their end, but remember; no one’s perfect!
Setting boundaries is not just a one-and-done deal. It’s a process that will stretch on throughout the years until your child is finally old enough to decide how to establish their own.
So in the meantime, keep up a united front with your partner and make sure you have each other’s backs every day!
