  • i would voice my thoughts cause life is to short not to say what you think and let people run over you all the time. maybe if you do you will feel better.

  • i think that as long as its not affecting the child you should keep the peace. if and when your child does know the difference then you should speak up. how old is the child? she may know the difference and just isnt speaking up about how it makes her feel.

  • This is tough, the thing you can do and feel good about yourself for is to talk with her about it. And I mean in a Big Girl voice because thats what the problem obviously needs, not shouting or whatever else. Because if you can show her that you're the bigger person hopefully monkey see monkey do :)

  • I am a big mouth so I would tell that bi*ch to shut her mouth or not come around. My mom use to be pretty bad not so much mean but she would make remarks with underlying meanings and such so I told her if she couldn't knock it off not to come around. We talked more about it and she decided to back off and watch what she says. You do not want to have this battle when your kids are old enough to be persuded and what not I would do it now and make a clean break if need be.
