I'm having a problem with my nearly 40 daughter who has a nearly 4 year old little girl, a daughter 14 and a son 12. She has started saying some things that just crush me when we are having a disagreement about the Gkids, usually when i've been watching the, and I have a different opinion.
The latest is,'You had your turn raising your kids, now it's my turn, and I can do what i want with them, Stop trying to raise my kids.'

Your daughter is absolutely right - these are her kids and she will do as she pleases (as long as it is legal and safe of course). You may give your opinion, force advice, tell her what YOU think is right for HER kids - in the end it is YOUR DAUGHTERS choice - end of story. Every parent has different ways of parenting - (forgive me if I'm wrong) but it sounds like you don't like HER way of parenting because it's not YOUR WAY of parenting? Your the GRANDMOTHER. I wouldn't push this issue to far - if your GKids see you disrespecting their Mom, they might push away from you.
