  • This is the second time my mother has done this and the only thing she has to say is "times have changed, how am I supposed to know".

    How in the world can I ever trust my mother to watch my baby when she doesn't respect my wishes!

  • I would be letting MY mother know that she's disregarded MY parenting rules twice, and because of that, she's no longer allowed to care for MY child without me being present.

  • You told her before, and she can't remember? Then she cannot babysit. I might see about an Alzeimers evaluation too. You CANNOT trust her.

  • I had a similar situation with my mother, my son is allergic to peanuts and she kept giving him peanut butter... he was 2 and kept breaking out in hives, huge ones that looked like welts. After the second time I finally had to say this is ridiculous you're endangering my child's life... she had convinced herself the "cure" to his peanut allergy was building up a resistance by giving him peanuts... Sometimes I wonder how my brothers and I made it... but I would tell your mom the same thing, clearly since she's not listening and respecting your wishes she doesn't need to watch your child. she can very easily screw up that delicate tummy of his, wait till he's older before leaving her in control again.

  • She would not be caring for my child again. Period.

  • I would go ape shit on my mom if she pulled that stunt. I definitely wouldn't trust her with my child alone again, that's for sure.

  • Never allow that person to be alone with your child!!
