we had my mother over on the weekend and our 2 year old hit our little girl so we told him he did the wrong thing etc and then we weren't talking to him for a few minutes I had to tell my mother 3 times not to talk to him and she kept asking why!
we have our bathroom door closed and she opened the door for our 2 year old to let him in! i couldn't believe it!
my DH had to bite his tongue (he can't stand my mother - that's a long story) mum and I have never been close and sometimes I ask myself why do I bother if it is going to be this frustrating with her all the time!
I have told her before that it makes it difficult for me to discipline my son if she is going to undermined me all the time she just doesn't listen!
I am lost as to what to do, I wonder half the time if she is the reason I am often grumpy and if I should just stop all contact
I just don't know what to do anymore
