I Kicked My Mother-in-Law Out of My Baby Shower When I Saw the Mean Gift She Brought to Embarrass Me in Front of Everyone

Dealing with humiliation and disrespect at your own baby shower, especially from your mother-in-law, can be incredibly difficult. Regrettably, Julie, a young mother-to-be, found herself dealing with this awkward situation among her loved ones. The gift she got from her mother-in-law caused her so much distress that she felt the need to ask her to leave the celebration. Now, Julie is looking for advice on how to navigate the aftermath of this situation.

It’s been quite a challenge for me to feel fully accepted by my mother-in-law and to fit into the family. She seemed nice and smiled at my baby shower, which made me think she was finally getting along with me, especially since I was going to have her first grandson.
As we started to open presents, a hush fell over the room. I felt sick when I demonstrated everyone her present, which was a bunch of condescending parenting guides and books with rude titles. There were approximately twelve books in total. Here are a few titles from the collection: «Why Your Kids Hate You: A Brutally Honest Guide to Parenting,» «The Idiot’s Guide to Raising Kids: Foolproof Parenting Techniques,» and «Parenting 101: How to Avoid Raising a Total Disaster.»

It was clear that these books were meant to imply that I would not excel as a mother and to cause me embarrassment in the presence of my loved ones.

No matter how hard I tried, everyone could see that I was really upset inside. I pretended not to be hurt and kept a happy face.
After twenty minutes, I decided to approach her and give back the books, kindly requesting that she leave my party. Our relationship has become quite uncomfortable lately, leaving me uncertain about how to navigate the future with her.

What do you think about this situation? What would you advise this young, expecting mother to do? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.
