I just recently moved back into my mom's house with my 2 year old daughter. (temporarily, I hope.) Ever since, I have had issues with her not respecting my parenting requests. For some examples, I ask her not to pick Lily up every time Lily cries, yet she does. I ask her not to give Lily candy/sugar/bottles of milk before bedtime, yet she does. I ask her not to give in to Lily's crying at bedtime because she doesnt want to go to bed, yet she does. Why cant she just respect that I dont have the same parenting style that she had? I try not to spoil my daughter, (to extremes, anyway) but my mother does. Why? I've tried to ask her before to respect what I ask and she constantly ignores it. It's getting on my last nerve, and one of these times Im just going to blow my top. Every time I try to address it, she just gets mad. Im fed up. "That's what grandmas are for." "You cant just let her cry, thats mean." "She cant go to sleep without a bottle." WELL NO SHIT SHE CANT. Because you dont give her a chance to adapt to it. She gives her EVERYTHING SHE WANTS AND I CANT STAND IT. Just earlier at 8, which is about Lily's bedtime, she gave her a powdered donut! RIGHT BEFORE BED. But guess who has to stay up with her until midnight because she's hopped up on sugar? ME. Does anyone else have this issue? Any advice?
