Family members that interfere

Does anyone have a mother or relatives that constantly interferes with how you raise your children, telling you what to do and undermining your authority? They try to make you feel like you are the worse parent in the world when you are disciplining your children? My mother never knows the boundaries and is getting on my nerves, mean while I'm a grown woman and she tries to make me feel like a kid when it comes to my child.

  • Oh yes! Is your mother mine??? It drives me insane. When my son was born we lived with her for a few years. I allowed her to interfere and it has done a grave injustice to my authority with him! Set boundaries now and let her know exactly what you expect. It's hard but you have to or your child will feel that they can override your authority with grandma!
