I just would like some advice. I want to know how you deal with other adults who disagree with your life choices, and how you are raising your kids. I have some wonderful family, but they constantly destroy so many of the good things I am building with the kids. An example: My mom will NOT turn the tv off, and she won't even keep good things on the tv when the kids are there. We try not to watch a lot of television for obvious reasons. What tv we do watch I try to make educational in some way. Another example: Trying to instill good eating habits we often shop at farmers markets, and the kids picked out snow pea sprouts. I put them in a salad when my parents came over for dinner and they asked why we were eating grass and told me it was disgusting. They don't have to choose to eat or like what we do, but shouldn't they be a little less obnoxious about it? CJ didn't want to eat them after his Meme and Pepe said they were yucky. What do you all do when someone is sabotaging your efforts at responsible parenting?
