I’m struggling with boundaries and communication with my mother-in-law. There are many instances where I feel uncomfortable by her actions but I haven’t spoken up because she is very sensitive and always gets very bent out of shape if I say anything remotely confrontational. This has led to underlying bitterness on my part. There is one issue I do want to address. She shares drinks with both my husband and my 2 year old son. I was raised to know this is unhygienic and I find it off putting and uncomfortable. I was wondering if anyone had any input on my situation; how should I bring it up? When it happens again? Ask my husband? Send a text? I don’t want to make her feel bad but it does baffle me that she doesn’t see how rude it is to potentially subject my son/husband/me to disease or illness and at the very least backwash! Lol. Thanks!
