YOu are still giving them power over you by remaining so involved and making whatever they say so important to you. You can remain polite but distant ( giving them less opportunities to say nasty things about you ) without getting involved in their affairs or letting them get involved in yours. You don't need to allow them to hurt you, and your child shouldn't spend holidays anywhere you don't like or approve of - nowhere is there a rule that this must happen
