comment Should I stop my mother in law visiting when she doesn't respect me as the father figure?
Great answer. Perhaps I feel that way because almost every point matched with how I handled a very similar situation, but it's a great answer regardless. My fundamental base was in our traditional marriage vows that included "forsaking all others". I never took that to mean only "forsaking only those with whom I might be sexually unfaithful", but rather that spouses become #1 in each others' lives. Parents become secondary,... until children arrive; then they're another level removed. Either spouses believe in their vows, or they don't.

comment Classmates choosing soccer tournament over my sons birthday party
What did your son say? Any chance he'd like to go watch with the others (or cheer them on if they're playing) and have a party with them later?

comment How to deal with “no”?
Examples of specific "no" situations are needed. Some are acceptable while others can have specific counteractions.

comment How to explain to a 9-year-old why a relative is not welcome
Good outline of an example conversation. Appropriate balance. Wish I'd had more time to include something like it. It expresses proper concerns toward the correct targets.
