I can deal with them not approving of my life. The constant telling my kids that I'm a rotten mother for not raising them the way I was (forced religion but only in the "do as I say, not as I do" and pretending that none of their 6 kids actually existed unless something was going to make THEM look good) not so much.
We live many states away and for he most part, I try and keep my kids from having much contact with them. No good comes from telling your grandkids how much better their OTHER grandkids are and how their cousins would NEVER get dirty like mine. No, their parents bought some mansion in the middle of an extremely poor area so they can lord it over everyone there and hire people for pennies to do all the housework, yardwork and so forth. My BIL was bragging about how he paid a group of 3 teens $10 TOTAL to mow, edge and weed his 3 acre lawn! What a jerk!!
