We all know that losing a child is one of the most devastating things that can happen to a person. It’s hard to imagine the pain that parents go through when they lose a child, especially if it was a premature or unexpected death. But despite knowing that, it doesn’t make it any easier. People who lose a child often feel guilty, sad, and lonely. And when a person is already so fragile, they need support from the ones they love. Sadly, this woman's mother-in-law used her son’s death to cause more pain. This woman turned to the Reddit community ‘Am I the A-hole?‘ for advice on whether or not she should forgive her mother-in-law who called her a bad mother at her 1-year-old son’s funeral.

A woman refuses to forgive her MIL who called her a bad mom at her son's funeral. 💔

When a woman lost her son to congenital heart disease at the age of 1 year and 6 months, it was a devastating experience. Already in constant conflict with her mother-in-law (MIL), the situation only got worse when her MIL had the audacity to publicly call her a 'bad mom' during her son's funeral. Understandably, the woman refused to attend an 'apology dinner' hosted by her MIL in an attempt to settle their unresolved issues. Despite other family members trying to convince her to forgive and move past the pain, she stands firm in her decision. This is a difficult situation for everyone involved and the tensions are still running high.
