Im not sure an article or place of support (blog?) exists, but dh and I have been harshly criticized by extended family who believe we're harming our dc for practicing gentle parenting, homeschooling, natural health, etc...basically, every parenting decision we've ever made is being criticized and now that our dc are getting older, they are being criticized too.
After explaining that we will not tolerate their interference, criticism, or attacks any longer they have decided that they do not want to be a part of our lives. Although I mostly feel this is a benefit, it's still painful to know that do not support us at all, to the point where they will not even try to have a relationship with our dc.
I've read Toxic In-Laws, and it certainly helped keep me from feeling guilty or responsible for the situation. However, now I'm looking for guidance on how to move forward with my family. My dh is very hurt, as am I, but it would help so much to read about others who've experienced and dealt with family criticism for doing many of the same things we value for our family.
Does anyone know of a good resource?
