I can’t stand my in-laws. Why do I feel such rage towards them?

Follow your anger down to the source to see what you are really afraid of, says Annalisa Barbieri

I am really struggling with my parents-in-law. My feelings about them changed after the birth of our two children. I new scoop longer stand the sight or sound of them.

When our first child was born I was very ill, yet they stormed away from the hospital because of a perceived slight. The same thing happened after the birth of our second child last year. They didn’t speak to us for days because, they said, they had been sidelined. I was furious, as was my husband. He had it out with them and they apologised, only to complain six weeks later that we had not visited them. My husband stood up to them again and they all agreed to move on.
