Well shes not technically my mother in law cause me and SO aren't married but were as good as I can't stand the women just found out today that she's been smoking in front of my DD when she knows how strongly I feel about people smoking in the same room as my daughter shes so selfish and my SO doesnt see why I'm so mad she doesnt respect my views at all I can't stand the women no wonder she doesn't come to our house shes not allowed to do that here and i told my SO theres no way the baby is going up to her house if that's how she's going to act am I over reacting x
I will lose the plot if she smokes in front of the baby, we always have the same argument to shuff78212 since my DD was a baby but my SO doesn't seem that bothered she only sees my daughter for a few hrs u think it wouldnt be to much to ask! x
You have to ensure you and your SO refuse her access when she will be alone with your child. You both have to agree on it which might be a problem if your SO does not hold your view as strongly. Check out online as now they say third hand smoking can also be a problem for little ones.
Wow I never thought about "third-hand" smoke. Second-hand is bad enough!
To the OP, you're not overreacting. Smoking around kids is BAD for them. I recall living next door to a set of twin toddlers who had parents that smoked. I don't know whether they smoked indoors or not, but in the wintertime those kids had the most awful, deep barking coughs I had heard. I felt soo bad for them. It sounded painful. It's smart to keep your precious daughter away from that!
I would happily give an ultimatum but I don't think my partner would agree he spoke to her today and she said it's her house and she can do what she likes and he said she should respect our views so we will see what happens but that's my point if she really cared about her granddaughter she wouldn't smoke near her but she doesn't shes just selfish and thinks she can do what she likes she's very much mistaken if she thinks that x
