Help me with these crazy in-laws please

OK. here goes. I have been married to my wife for about 6 years, and for as long as i have known it I have been dealing with here irresponsible family. They are constantly asking for money and favor after favor. They have no boundaries when it comes to respecting me as a individual or as a father of our daughter. I guess my question is..... How do you deal with in-laws that dont respect your views as a father for your child, and should I or should my wife be setting the boundaries with her parents/family in regards to how they interact with me. I am perfectly capable of letting the family know what the deal is, but for some reason it works out better for me to cater to their narcissistic tendencies because this provides me with the most and fastest relief....HELP!!!

Re: Help me with these crazy in-laws please

Looks like they are leeching off you, only way is to cut them off really.

My mother-in-law always hated me, hated my blood, faith, soul, work and even tried to get the missus to abort our daughter in the past (and that's when I lost it and cut her off and made it literally impossible for her to be within 100 meters of my daughter who she wanted murdered...)

Over time she learnt the errors of her ways however, she started to regret her behavior being unable to visit her own grand-daughter for a year. Sometimes people just need to face some consequence before they learn. In your case as well.
