I have a very strained relationship with my mother due to emotional and physical abuse she put me through as a child. I didn't speak to her for 5yrs of my adult life due to her b.s. She doesn't spend any time with my daughters and favors my neice over them because their father is a black man. But get this, that whole side of my family is African American!
Over the holidays, my mother didn't take her pills and was stressed out I suppose and tried to physically assult me in front of my girls and my DH. My oldest was traumatized by these events and still is to an extent. I guess my question is, should I allow this woman to see my girls at all, or am I doing the right thing by keeping my distance. Should I try and patch things up for my girls despite the b.s. and harm she's caused my family?
