Or do you just agree to disagree?
I have to say that my mom and I have some major differences when it comes to child raising. But her ways aren't necessarily the best ways, nor are they right. Besides, as I often like to remind her, I am me. I am not her, therefore, I am not going to do everything just as she did.
There are things, however, that she was spot on about.
And yes, I do tell her when she's right.

I do everything opposite of what my mom would do. I don't think she was a very good mom and I want better for my child. She criticizes me but I let it go in one ear and out the other. I feel bad for her because I know she never had the kind of loving relationship with any of us like I have with my daughter. She will never know the joy I have.

haha we agree on a few but the weird part is how angry she gets when I don't do as she says.Since I finished college at 22 I have been self supporting by either me or when we decided for me to be a SAHM my dh.We have never lived with her , needed her to be a built in babysitter or borrowed a penny.My kids are far from perfect but rang from middle school to college and are honor roll students ,not perfect but good kids nothing major.Yet she seriously thinks she should tell me the correct way and my thoughts are worthless.She thinks she should be obeyed.So though we live in the same city I let the machine pickup and return calls about every 10 days and see her about once a month except for holidays and birthdays etc.I tried to just nod and say will see but that led to being screamed at for patronizing her.She expects total obedience.It is sad but about 13 years ago when she decided she named my youngest I was done.
