Re: "Bribing" for affection - too sensitive, or just let it go?

I would def put a stop to that non sense and my disapproval would be known. I think it is rude to try to force someone into affection and invade their space against their will.
This exactly. I agree with you, OP, and I would probably explain my feelings as politely as possible to my MIL privately if she continued to do things like that.
