Q: Whatever the mother do for her child she has to face criticism from everyone-from in-laws, her own parents, relatives about parenting style. It's from my experience and I am hurt. What about you all. How true it is to you? Do any of you experienced the same? How to handle it without letting relationships spoil?

Just hear and be calm.Ignore. If something good..take it. If you feel..it's not, leave it. Everyone will be concerned about kid.

Dear, first you need to understand that whosoever (in-laws, relatives) giving you advice loves your child too.So, they really care.
Secondly, it's just a difference in perspectives, somewhat like- if I ask you what makes a human being happy ? There would be different answers and all correct from their point of views.
If possible let them know calmly why u choose a certain parenting style, if they understand good and while many won't than give them assurance that you will try their parenting style too to see what work best for the kid.
And The problem you are facing is not new and too common, specially in joint families.Clashing of opinions is something inevitable and one need to balance this out calmly. Take special care that one's kid do not get influence by it at all !

Thanks for the tag asha Chaudhry ❤️❤️.. It seems this post was posted twice by mistake... I answered d other one... N pasting what I replied there 😊...
I second u Charu Sareen Gujjal  n Priya Sood...
Parenting isn't a race,  it's about embracing every moment and love n care... Each parent does the best to their capabilities...
I have received some really mean comments from ppl in the family and even from ppl walking on the road...
I have broken all d possible stereotypes of parenting and have seen ppl rolling their eyes... But for all I care...
I have never put a kala teeka on my girls, n I know for sure,  that for a superstitious thing like this I had to fight the world to make a point that Wat I was doing was right...
What matters is that in ur heart u have to HAVE TO believe u r doing ur best,  and that's what matters... I have invented a sarcastic smile for such ppl... I give them that and say nothing now and move on n keep doing what I want to...
Give a deaf ear girl...
