Explain to your daughter some people have outdated ideas of what men and woman are supposed to like and it’s perfectly ok for her to like :sauropod: and decorate her room with them. Tell mother in law you respect you have a difference in opinion but this Is your daughter and you would appreciate if she kept her old fashion bias’s away from your daughter. She’s free to be whomever she is not what society or grandma prefers.

Do what your daughter wants if it’s your house your mother in law has no say so in the matter if she don’t like it tell her to kiss your ass

Tell your daughter to tell her grandma she should NOT have an opinion on the matter. /end

It’s not her house, bedroom, or child so…

Interests are not gendered! Boys or girls can like whatever they like. If MIL can’t accept that, she doesn’t need to be an influence on your kids. As for how to handle it, tell her you’ll raise YOUR children and decorate YOUR house how YOU please. Then give that kiddo a dino room.

Dinosaurs are adorable. I love your daughter’s idea. Tell your mother-in-law that “In this house, dinosaurs are for boys and girls.” And if she doesn’t like it she can “Stick it where the sun don’t shine.”

I would be livid. She has no right to tell your daughter what she can and cannot do to her bedroom!!! Grandma needs to butt out . …not her choice

Give your baby what ever she wants :heavy_heart_exclamation:. Grandma needs to relax somewhere else

Guess what grandma there are female paleontologists… Shock horror. Grandma, there is female mechanics too… Tell grandma to take a seat. Interests are not gender based. Your house is your daughters safe place to express her interests and if ole ‘it’s 1920 and that’s not a women’s role’ grandma can’t get on board then she should no longer be welcome.

I’d lose my shit. Your daughter likes what she likes. MIL can keep her outdated opinions to herself

It would have been hilarious if your daughter would have roared at her. Anyways, we are talking about a 5 year old that knows what they like at that age. Why on Earth anyone thinks it’s ok to tell someone, regardless of age or gender, that they are wrong for liking what they like is beyond me. In my opinion, you need to set mil straight that it is not ok to judge someone and make them feel less about themselves because of what they like.

Well it’s what your daughter wants grandma can get over it… not her daughter

Do it anyway. She will love it. Next year it might be monster trucks or fluffy animals. Do what you as parents feel to make her imagination thrive! Stay strong parents

Tell her what you think. Gender stereotypes? Why. What’s the point. Little girls can like dinosaurs and little boys can like the color pink. It’s not the end of the world here.

Thank her for her input, and then you and your Eight year decided on a theme.

How deplorable!!! I would calmly (as possible) let your MIL know that it’s yours daughters room and she can have whatever decorative room she wants. That letting your daughter express herself in her interests now is important in her development, plus studies have shown that children whom learn about dinosaurs at an early age tend to do well in school.

I have 1 girl and 3 boys when we go to Dr Nd they get stickers they always try to give her princess sticker and she will ask for ninja :turtle:! But some advice I would do posters and easy stuff for dinosaur thing I would say same if she wanted fairies :woman_fairy:. I’ve changed my 5 yr old daughter’s room 3 times in the last yr. They are a hot mess Nd change their minds to much! Lol good luck
And u should probably have ur husband talk to his mother about it!!

Ummm tell her to tough shit. Unbelievable how dare she really

I LOVE dinosaurs lol and I’m a 40 year old grown ass woman Lol.

thinking you and hubby need to do 3 things ONE get strong women in your life to help your daughter understand that her choice is a great one and that back when grandma was little, girls were taught to like only one kind of thing and now we know that girls can like and be anything they want and lots of girls love dinosaurs. TWO you and hubby need to get in your car, go visit grandma (leave kids home or with friends or family) and do a little limit setting. Her behavior was inappropriate and not the way you want to raise your daughter(s). And THREE Hopefully, if ONE was successful, your daughter will want a dinosaur room—perhaps a few (or lots of)colorful flowers and LOTS OF DINOSAURS—maybe even a pink one named grandma(lol) Good luck!!!

Throw the whole mother in law in the trash :woman_shrugging:t3:

I’d be like if she wants dinosaurs she can have dinosaurs my kid… not yours

Dinosaurs are for everyone

Let your husband deal with her!!!

Dinosaurs everywhere and I would dress my daughter with dinosaur shirts for every grandma visit

I think it is quite interesting she’d like a dinosaur theme. I am studying Biology Anthropology and there is much to be learned from them. It was the Jurassic Period and a golden time for dinosaurs. They flourished 180 million years ago. There are female Anthropologists. Jane Goodall to name one.

Explode!! Set that boundary or she’s just gonna continue to do things like that.

Do whatever your daughter wants. In a couples she will want it changed again. Maybe she will be a paleontologist!

Give your daughter her dinosaurs room. There’s nothing wrong with it

That would be such an awesome room! Stop it now (with your MIL) before it goes too far. My daughters love superheroes, dinosaurs and sharks. That’s what they’re shared room theme is. We don’t own any dolls :joy:

Go off. It’s your kids room. She doesn’t have to like it. It’s the girls room not hers if she wants Dino’s she gets Dino’s. If she wants Dino’s surf bars I g wearing tutus give it to her

Take charge of your mil-U are in control of ur own child!!! Your mil has already raised hers!!!

You can make a girls room in dinosaurs

As a mother I would expect some compassion and understanding. Can you get off your high horse and own the fact that your comment was toxic. Seriously!

Your daughter, your rules.:brown_heart:

Why would she make a big deal at 5 what she has her room in she is 5 a baby still really if she wants dinosaurs let her have them there is nothing wrong with that at all. It would be different if she was a teenager maybe but not really when I was young I did mine in teenage mutant ninja turtles I turned out ok. Your MIL needs to chill out.

Am grateful to this manager, and am happy i met him at the right time, he taught me that its not all about getting wealth but how to utilize it to get more wealth, i sincerely say its a privilege investing under your platform, i thank God for Mr. Joshua Bunker, whose right platform earned me alot of money.

Be like I’m sorry that you never got to have the room of your dreams as a child but if you EVER tell my child what is acceptable or not you won’t have to worry about grandchildren because you won’t see them . Keep your misogynistic views away from little ones!!!

Dinosaurs :sauropod: was the theme for my girls first birthday she is 17 months now and still pulls out her Dinosaurs and plays
Yr mother in law should keep her nose where it simply don’t belong, and don’t ever belittle a little ones dreams or interest

I bought this for my 7 yr old daughter lmao

She had a choice and that is what she chose. Case closed.

My daughter in her teens went from wanting Winnie the Pooh and then the next year asked for black which we did.

Show your MIL some examples! I think she’ll change her mind…

Wow… If the girl gets to pick she gets to pick. Other than atrocious or vulgar, insane wallcolor etc…

Yeah sorry MIL is way out of line. Seems like a total bitch. My 3yr old Daughter LOVES dinosaurs and has many dinosaur clothing items which were bought in the girls section but we have also bought items from the boys section. Our children should be free to express themselves! I would set boundaries with the MIL and if she cannot respect you or your child I personally would tell her not to come around :woman_shrugging: just my opinion.
I will not let anyone make my child feel bad or wrong for things she likes!

Tell your MIL to mind her own business and keep her negative comments to herself.

Your MIL is an example of why MILs get a bad rap! MILs mind your own business !!!

I’m childish so id take it that one step further and make sure every special event she had something with one on and sent on cards and even get a dress with them on! My sister used to hate me putting the girls in anything blue or dark and would go out her way to change it so I always make sure to dress them init🤣
