"I don't like what my mother-in-law says in front of the kids. What should I do?"

No one wants conflict within the family—especially when you are all living under one roof. So what do you do when there’s a disagreement between family members? This week’s Tips On Teens question comes from a parent who wants to talk to their mother-in-law about problematic behaviors, but isn’t sure how to:
“My mother-in-law has been staying with us during quarantine. She grew up in the 40s, and still holds many views my husband and I do not agree with. The longer she is here, the more I worry that our kids (all middle schoolers) will parrot her beliefs. I want to call her out, but she’s also my mother-in-law, so I don’t want to create a rift in the family. Is it appropriate to pull my kids aside and just talk to them about her?”
