The Redditor, who describes his mother-in-law as a "horrible person who loves to create drama" explained that during Christmas, he and his wife got different gifts for their kids.

Unfortunately, the mother-in-law used that fact to pit the children against each other. The man recalled:

"My mil (mother in law) decided to tell my daughter that she didn't get as many gifts as my brother and that we spent less on her, basically trying to get our daughter to believe that we loved her less. We then had to deal with a crying 13-year-old on Christmas."

He also noted that his mother-in-law loved to buy super expensive gifts for people to upstage everyone and brag about it in front of people.

For this year's Christmas, the mother-in-law called to ask what they would be doing for the festivity. He explained to her that he and his wife would have a potluck dinner, but she was quick to tell them about individual family members who didn't cook so well.

Unfortunately, every one of the statements was false. Fed up of his mother-in-law's tactics, the man insisted that she doesn't come to their home for Christmas.

However, his wife doesn't seem to be on the same page with him as she believes he is "being incredibly cruel" to her mum.

Wanting to know if he was truly mean, the man chose to ask other Redditors.

Many people encouraged him not to feel bad about his decision as he was only protecting his children.

Others, however, thought he was genuinely unfair as he is totally ignoring his wife's feelings.

The man's story shared a similarity with this woman whose husband believes she is impartial to her kids because she buys her daughter more expensive gifts than her son.

Although she explained that her daughter got an expensive gift because she earned money from doing extra work chores, her husband insists that she returns the pricey gift or add the same amount for their son's gift.
