Breathing treatments are a serious thing. I would be mad too! Your husband should back you up and talk to his parents about it.

If you did nothing wrong, don't apologize. If they won't respect you, make them!! Don't let it bother you, you are doing what you think is best and they shouldn't have put your daughter at risk. Let them have time to think and hopefully grow up

My rule is I refuse to handle issues with my in laws. I tell my husband about it and finish it with "Deal with this, NOW." I know he can handle it all better than me and it will be accepted better coming from him.

Also, no need to yell at your husband or them. Just be matter of fact about it. They put your child in danger and that's unacceptable. They should apologize.

Ughhhhh in-laws. Firstly, you're right to be upset. You gave them specific instructions and they didn't follow them. So she was "fine" huh? Well what if she wasn't? Things can change so suddenly with breathing problems.



Sadly, they won't see the error of their ways if it's not blatantly shoved into their faces and explained thoroughly. They don't think they've done anything wrong here because things were different when they were doing the parenting. I've seen so much of a difference between how one age group interacts with their child as opposed to another. To them, your daughter's breathing issues are just something that's there when it's there and not a problem when it's not. Unless you call them out on it, make them see that the medication is preventative as well as a treatment, they won't get it.



Keep calm and explain it to them. Making a scene will just reinforce the fact that you're the "overbearing daughter-in-law" who thinks she knows better. (You actually do know better though :lol: )

Quoting Amanda Contento:" he's a wuss because his dad is an ass. His dad is a former Marine and I don't know what the hell they ... [snip!] ... to make that decision not me forcing her to do something she doesn't want to do. I was PISSED they said those things to her."


I wouldn't be letting them around her unsupervised honestly. That's mental abuse really.

Quoting Amanda Contento:" That was the last time ever because I never want her to have to go through that ever again. I don't speak to her that way and he sure as hell doesn't get too. "


Good for you :D
