britty:  move? Lol, sorry too easy.

Your husband needs to stand up as the man of the family and protect his wife and kids. Your fil is not respecting either one of you with his behavior and he needs to be put in his place. If he doesnt learn after confronted, then putting space between all of you will be the only way til he realizes he has to keep his mouth shut or get shut out.

Two questions.

Who does fil think should be on your bank account? Fil or your hubby? Fil NO x100! That would be very much a boundary issue.  If it is hubby; hubby probably should have access for emergencies or at least fill out a power of attorney.

How does hubby handle fil? If hubby has your back, this can be dealt with by politely and firmly setting boundaries and house rules. Then enforcing them.

Also hubby can take kido to visit the grands when you have things to do(work, grocery shopping, hanging out with friends-haha). That way the in-laws get kido time, but you don’t have to spend as much time with fil.

I suggest you make a conscious choice not to let Father-In-Law push your buttons. Just thank him for his opinion/contribution/idea, then tell him that the two of you already have a plan.
