  • Tell her straight out. Tell her your her mother and you need to learn to do things without her butting in.

  • Let her know you appreciate her help and her suggestions, but dd is your child not hers and you need to be able to be Mommy, so she can be GRANDMA!

  • You should have to step up and tell her.

  • You have to look at it for her point of view for a second. 16 is very young to be having a baby. Still a child to her really. (Sounds like you have stepped up to the plate in awesome fashion though so good work!) So have a talk with her saying you realize you mean seem incapable in her eyes but you are doing your best and would like her to just give you the chance you deserve. Showing some understand may keep it from escalating more than you would want.
