Working it Out?

I spoke to the town council officer about the case with the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law. She seemed like a reasonable and nice lady, and she said that the town council's stance is that this is a family matter which they will not get involved in.

The daughter-in-law also wrote to say that they may ask the mother-in-law to move out. Very sad that it has to come to this, but the relationship may be so toxic that it cannot be saved without a lot of work.

This is a social issue that can be referred to a nearby family service centre. Check the MCYS website for a directory for FSC's.

I agree - I think it's a sad case. What is extra sad is that the daughter-in-law is now saying she wants to get MORE authorities involved if her mother-in-law does not stop feeding.

I can imagine how difficult the "son" and "husband" person involved in the middle is feeling.
They are all "victims" of the situation and will be very challenging for counselling and family mediation.

Vegancat - agreed. No one wins in this.
