Yesterday when i went to pick up my child from my in laws there was a frosty atmosphere it turns out FIL kept doing my childs finger prick test wrong(t1 diabetic) so my child was trying to tell him how to do it any how he got irate and told her to do it themselves! My child got upset and mother in law got upset and she told him he was out of order which he replied he did not care(all in ear shot of child) then when we were leaving my child went to kiss him goodbye and he totaly ignored them! Would you send them round to there house tonight or get mother in law to take them straight round home( we live 5 mins away) because he can have the hump for says.

Take them home and have a word with FIL!!!

I wouldn't be letting my child be in contact with him if he was going to be stroppy. She's a child, he needs to apologise. Tell your daughter that so she knows he's I'm the wrong not her. Sounds like your mil understands at least. Can she not have a word?

I would be livid. The finger prick test is important to get right and your FIL cared more about his self importance at being proved wrong than about the child's health.

Not kissing them goodbye is also the act of a complete bellend.

I wouldn't leave them with him.

It sounds as if your dd is more mature than your fil. I'd be having words.

My FIL is all or nothing! He can be so helpful with things!But there is a side i dont like how can you ignore a child and in some ways my child can be just like him has to be always right! Will suggest going straight home.

I wouldnt want my child around fil when he is behaving like that.

On a side note how can you get a finger prick test wrong? It is such a simple thing to do.
