My parenting skills are being criticised by my boyfriend's judgemental sister | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: ACCORDING to my boyfriend’s sister, I’m a work-shy  scrounger and had a baby to get a council flat.

She is always criticising my parenting skills and I know she looks down on me because I get universal credit.

I’m 27 and, through no fault of my own,  a single mum to my son, who is three.

My boyfriend is 30 and his sister is 34. They’re very close.

He tells me to ignore her but I can’t.

She’s always sticking her nose in where it’s not wanted and it leads to arguments between us.

I want him to defend me and tell her where to go. Instead, he sticks up for her, making excuses and saying she’s just a forthright person.

He looks up to her, like he’s still a little boy and she’s his big sister, and he asks for her opinion on everything.

But if he listens to her opinion about me, I can’t see our relationship lasting.

DEIDRE SAYS: Your boyfriend is stuck between you and his sister and, unfortunately, seems unable to stand up to her, even if she upsets you.

You need to talk to him calmly and tell him how this is making you feel.
