My opinion is that the way to handle situations like this is to calmly 
explain to your family that the decision is yours alone. Explain that 
while you value their suggestions, you have to make decisions like this 
yourself. Your loved one will probably understand that. If they don't, 
you should hold firm. Try to avoid arguing about it, simply hold firm.

Of course, it behooves each of us not to take unnecessary risks. As I 
was losing my vision, I kept on running outdoors for excersize long 
after it was safe. I fell down a lot and cracked my scalp open a few 
times before my sister read me the riot act. Eventually I got back into 
running with a sighted guide.

Having glassware in the home is not a life threatening risk. An adult 
ought to be able to make that decision on their own.
