My mother is absolutely nuts!
All through my childhood growing up, she would tell me im dramatic. If i cried too much over being hurt, i was dramatic, if something made me sad, i was dramatic, if there was an argument and i was passionate about it and stood up for myself, i was dramatic.
I always hated her telling me that. It really put down my self-esteem. Im now an adult and have my own child, and she still, tells me im dramatic. If we get in an argument about something, she'll say why do you act like that? why do you act dramatic? Which makes me more angry! I think she does it JUST to make me mad.
Well, she tells MY daughter this now. Since i grew up hearing it 24/7, i always hated it and i do not want my daughter to have these same things told to her.
Today, they were playing around and my daughter got hurt and cried, no big deal it wasn't anything major but she did get hurt so she cried. I went down there and said, "what happened". My mom said, "nothing shes a drama queen just like you are!" I ignored that comment and just said (very calmly because i feel i have to walk on egg shells or shell jump down my throat) well shes crying for some reason, what happened? my mom said they were playing and she got hurt and shes just being dramatic. I asked her "please stop telling her shes dramatic, i was always told that when i was little and it really hurt my feelings."
What does she say? "Stop being dramatic! I can say what i want" WTH??
NOOO YOu cannot say or do whatever you want to MY child. its my kid.
How do i get through to her that she cannot SAY or DO whatever she wants to my daughter?
I need to get away from her!!!! Ahhhhhh!!! (Clearly there is more than just this ONE event)
