You should be furious! I also feel that if your husband loved and respected you, he would feel the same way. <br />
I'm sorry to expose yet another possible instance of disrespect, but that's what I feel is reasonable,expected and rational. <br />
I'm sorry to say though, that if your husband does not voluntarily make his feelings known to them that their comment was inappropriate, rude and down-right cruel...there is nothing you can do. If you say something to them about it..they will most likely give some lame *** excuse and the end result will you being considered a "*****".<br />
That's been my experience! <br />
Better off just telling your children that that is disrespectful and their grandparents were wrong. It may help to give them a example like...What if you referred to him as "the boy" or "my offspring"..even though they are true comments...How you refer to loved ones says something about how you regard them, feel about them and love them.<br />
Children want to know they are loved...Explain it to them and they will see for themselves how inappropriate it would be to call you anything other than MOM or MOMMY!
I would get more than just mad.......<br />
Also I consider "Mum" to be a title.......You are the Mother and deserve that title.<br />
She has no place undermining your role.<br />
I hope your husband is supportive.
Um what? Hell no it is not wrong of you to get mad at that. Yeah, it's their grandchild, but it's YOUR child.. You and your husband are the only ones who have a right to tell him/her what to do...<br />
return the favor?<br />

I would not like to have your in-laws.<br />
They are teaching your kids to act disrespectful in my mind.... you should be furious!!!!
of courseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, kids with time will hate u cuz only a kid that hater her mom calls her by name
Tell them you don't appreciate it, you find it to be disrespectful on all counts and they can either stop or they can have limited time with their grandchild.<br />
You're the parent, you control the situation.
oh, I'd be there right along with you! How DARE they! What your child calls you is between you and your child, no one else's business! <br />
And yes, your husband needs to have a serious talk with his parents about the fact that they need to respect you and not teach your child to disrespect you! If he has no spine, then you need to tell them off!
Those husbands parents wouldn't even get in the door. Does your husband not call his parents by their first names? If he doesn't you had better have a damn serious chat with your husband about this problem. As far as I am concerned you gave birth to that child not them. Being called Mom seperates you as the adult from the child. Tell those people off as well as your husband.
Does you child call them by their first names or does it he use Grandma and Grandpa? It may simply a case of them calling you by your first name and the child picking up on it. As a grand parent I have always made it a point of referring to my daughter as "mommy" when the children are around to avoid this confusion. Just tell your child's grandma and grandpa that we are all going to use the same name for each other that we wish the child to use to avoid confusion.
I would step in and instruct them not too tell him things like that and I would tell your son that you prfer he doesn't call you that.Don't let them do that you you!
Even if you are not his real mother i am sure you deserve to be call mom, and if you are his real mom then hell with your husbands parents i would say.. cheers from Singapore.
Yes...it is ok to feel whatever you feel..And yes, I would get mad for this too. I would consider it a lack of respect, but still try to resolve it in an amiable way.
Are they crazy? you are his mom they should teach him that. Not to call u by your name! He should call them by their names then.
