  • Sounds like you're upset about it and don't want to tell your Mom it bothers you, so you take out your frustration on your husband. The only way to stop doing that is to tell your Mom how you feel.

  • You can't change your mother. You can set boundaries for what you allow into your own home.

  • isn't that the wisest thing I ever heard..."you can't change your mom"...family of origin stuff is the hardest to modify....I have to trust the world is a save place for the most part..and limit my exposure to my family when they are freaking out about their stuff (OK they are complete Tea Party people ~they treat people poorly and claim to to be thinking all holy...but they are old).
