Is it ever appropriate to keep your baby from your family?

If you aren’t getting your way with your in-laws, is it appropriate to hold your child ransom and not allow them to see your child or significant other?

Depends on what the family have done to make you feel this way

Hell yes for all kinds of reasons. It’s THEIR kid and your not entitled to time with it

It would have to really depend on the situation.

Depending what it is???
If it’s nothing serious, but they aren’t respecting your wishes as a parent then I’d have supervised visits only

Depends on situation are they disrespecting you as the mother or your wishes regarding the child. Or do you just not like them?

As long as you trust the inlaws to always look after your child you don’t have to like them.

We are going through something like that right now. My bf decided to not let his mother see his daughter anymore due to her alcoholism and how she’s treated everyone and has cut all ties with her. I and his sisters have backed him up 100% on his decision.

Depends on what the situation is. I don’t have to see my in laws but I do want my child to see them unless they have done something against our wishes as his parents or harmed my child and the same goes for my mom. When she threatened to come to my house and beat my ass because I said something she didn’t like, I told her to never call me again and never come near my house. Shortly after we moved back to New Mexico and when her dad /my grandpa got sick, we started talking.

Absolutely. Going through that now. Don’t respect the mother, then you won’t see my kids.

My in laws piss me off so they dont get access through me. If their dad wants them to have anything to do with them I dont care. I just stopped my in laws from being a part of my life not my kids.

Depends on the circumstances IMO. If it is a for safety concerns regarding yourself or baby, yes. If it is because there is a hostile environment, yes. If it is because they are a wear on your mental state, yes.

Depends on the situation and the relationship of the in-laws

Depends on the situation. If it were me personally and I didn’t get along for whatever reason I would still allow my spouse to take my children.

My father in-law hasn’t seen my kids in over 5 years

Depending on the situation but in my opinion no! That’s not healthy for the kids being kept from family. But who ever thinks of the kids anyway??

Aren’t getting your way?! Ugh no it’s not right. If there’s more to the story and a different senerio then maybe but just for not getting your way NO
