Quoting →Ebahϖ:" they dont respect me. my family is a bunch self centered smurfs. if i just let them show up and not ... [snip!] ... up it would be a personal attack on every single one of them for some unknown thing they did that never mattered to start with."
I understand what you mean. My mom is like that. I told her that the hospital rules about visiting were visiting hours between 2pm and 8pm and no one under 16 allowed. She freaked out and said that she won't get to see the baby and for me to just send her a picture. I have a little brother and sister that are 5 and 6 and apparently she can't get a babysitter. I've learned with her to just tell things to her straight, while still being respectful, and if she gets mad then she gets mad. It isn't easy because you want to make everyone happy but you shouldn't sacrifice your happiness. Just tell them that the nurses will turn anyone else away. If they still show up it's their problem.
