Hellooooooo! My mother!! AND, unfortunately, my two kids and I live with her. I try so hard to keep the peace because we have nowhere else to go right now, but sometimes I swear I just can't stand it. Tonight, my DS had a temper tantrum (he's 5). Screamed at the top of his lungs for a while. My mom wanted to beat the $#!# out of him and I simply told her I'd take care of it. She got pissy and dramatic and told me I told her to butt out??!!! Then, after I got my DS to calm down, I told him to appoligize to her. He asked for her "forgiveness" and she not only told him "NO" but that she felt like (direct quote) "I want to put my hands around your neck and choke you". My son is now totally freaked out and scared because Nani wants to kill him, I told her how wrong and messed up it was and appologized to my son for sending him in there. How do I deal? I pray, really hard!!
