How do y'all deal with unsolicited advice from family members? We've been having a rough go at it for sometime now, with the quarantine and all, and they ask how it's going and then jump straight into what my SO and I are doing wrong, mind you they have no kids at home. I've tried to be nice but I've resorted to just not answering their calls anymore..

Address it tastefully. They will continue to do so if you allow it. I'm a firm believer in the only people who run our home is me & the hubby that's it. If I don’t ask for advice don't give it. Set boundaries without feeling bad about it. Protect your peace

Mama S asks I could really use some kind words right now. I'm 28 weeks pregnant and I've been physically and mentally miserable. I don't feel like my stomach can stretch or grow anymore, my ligaments hurt, and I'm always short of breath. Mentally, this darn virus is getting the best of me. I've been in quarantine for at least 9 weeks, (I've seen a few close people, distance of course) and I feel like people just don't get the fact that I can't be fully around them due to my high risk pregnancy.
