I agree. Don't try to be the parent and don't push your views or you will regret it. Especially when dealing with a daughter-in-law, you are even more limited in what you can say or do. I remember I felt the same way about my mother-in-law when my kids were young. Her well-meaning statements were taken out of context "just because". I now realize that she is one of the sweetest people I could have ever known and I wish I would have given her the consideration she deserved and not try to be so defensive! There's just something about the mother-in-law and it doesn't help if your son keeps praising their mother, saying how great of a cook she is or how great of a mother she is. They see it as playful bantering but as daughter-in-laws, we see it as a competition ha ha

I wonder if a child would benefit from knowing that among some people, it is generally believed that birth once more follows death in an unending cycle.

Certainly the detailed form of someone dear to the child will vanished, but, according to this view, the relationship in a different form can continue.

wow grandparents should never discuss #1 & 2 unless specifically directed to by a parent, you are actively trying to parent and push the parents aside. These are such important topics, parental topics, boundary crossing topics...
