How do I deal with my mother?

My mother has never liked my fiance and my daughter started calling him daddy. Which is good becuase she doesnt know her real father and needs a father figure in her life. Well she comes home from grandmas one day and says mommy mike is my friend not my dad grandma said so. Mike and I plan on marrying this year and any attempt mike makes to get closer to Krysta to be a dad is shot down by my mother. how can I explain to Krysta that mike will be her daddy, and grandma can not change that.

  • Explain to your dd that getting married means he becomes your partner & her daddy & no matter what anybody says that's the way it is. Talk to your mom & explain to her that she needs to be more supportive or you'll be forced to stop allowing your dd to spend unsupervised time w/ her to avoid situations like this one. Grandma needs to deal w/ whatever reasons she doesn't like him like an adult & not involve your dd. She should be the last one grandma's talking to about her dislike!

  • You need to deal with your mother! She should not be saying these things to your daughter.
