Horrid mother in law and your child (ren)
06 July 2016, 20:15
Nairobi - There is this culture where, once a son
marries, they do not go and live in their own house with the bride but the
bride moves in with the family.
I just can’t.
Every single day with people I have to make
a good impression on and if that fails I have to put up with it, I cannot.
Dealing with sisters and mothers on a daily basis will either have me walking
out on someone or killing somebody.
Today’s mothers in law are very urbane.
They are still living in town and next to you. If she is a good one, thank
heavens because you cannot do everything by yourself but how do you handle one
that has something bad to say about you?
Most people do not understand why some
women would not want to visit or deal with their own mother to the husband. Now
can you imagine one that has something bad to say about her every time?
She will keep her children away from her;
for the simple reason that that woman can easily turn her children against her.
Enough time with the child and enough whisper to the ear and the child will
easily become an evil seed that the mother has to deal with.
That is why when most mothers sense a bad
tide when it comes to her man’s family, she just pulls her children away from
them to avoid that type of damage.
