I am still so pissed. So my husband and I went to Thanksgiving at his family's house. (My husband is my kids step dad) So we get there and they act like we are not there until they start pushing my boys outside but my daughter and the other kids got to stay inside. Then it gets worse my boys didnt get to eat but my daughter got to eat and then got pie. My oldest son has ADHD and my youngest has Autism. The kids were behaving and just sitting down talking with some people. I do not understand why my boys got treated like that. It hurt and pissed me off but I mean my boys saw what happened. I know they felt bad too. I have decided we will never go there again but I do not even know what to say to the woman that did this. My husband and I were shocked at how they treated the kids.

I would have asked for an explanation and then left. I wouldn't have eaten there.

It is time to cut off the in-laws.

My husband said he will be dealing with it because this was the first time I met these people. As for leaving right away I had to give my kids a break we drove 2 hours to go see them.

Wow I'm sorry you and the boys had to deal with that.
I've been part of similar experiences with my disabled brother.
Some family/friends just can't act properly

@Dhartanya It just amazes me how some people can be. I never though that family would act that way.

@Mom2Froggy I wouldn't do that with my kids being as young as they are.

I'm so sorry you had to deal with this. I know first hand how difficult it is to deal with ignorant a-holes regarding special needs kids. My older son is diagnosed high fuctioning autism, but as he's gotten older, it more of ADHD, ODD, anxiety issues, and yes, still an Aspie. He's a handful. My younger son is typical.

We flew cross country to my inlaws house for Xmas and after a few days my SIL (whose a nut bag anyway) had a huge problem with many things, one being my son. But SHE was definitely making him worse. SHe was sobotaging him, and just being a egomaniac that felt personally offend by a 4 year old with all these issues that she was informed about.I think she felt we HAD to endure her behavior because we were 3000 miles from home and our flight was a week away. DH ripped her a new one, and we left. Couldn't get a flight home early, so we took our rental car and drove home. Cross country. Because DH and I don't F around. It was actually amazing.
And strangely enough my son did very well once he was out of her home. And we got to see the country, which was just breath-taking.

THere's going to be a lot of a holes that surface. It sounds like this caught you off guard. But don't be afraid to put people in their place. Or to drive cross country to show them you are will not let your kids be treated like crap. Good luck in the future.

Yea, I never thought family would be that way. I knew other people who we do not know would but it just amazes me that family can be worse than anyone else.
