  • Not really, other than giving that sound of "awww" when they're being disciplined, as if they didn't deserve the discipline, but that's just a grandparent being a softy I think.

  • My mom points things out. but she have never actually criticized me as a mom.

    She did ask me to stop raising my voice at my daughter in public. I'm working on not raising my voice at her so much altogether.

  • All the time. I just ignore her since she really wasn't a parent to me growing up. I know I am doing a better job then she ever did/could.

  • My mom will give me her 2 cents, but never criticize. My MIL, on the other hand, is constantly undermining me IN FRONT of my 3yo. I could just bitch slap her! ha!

  • Not really.. but everyone else tries to. When I'm out shopping I will occasionally get that "you're too young to be capable of raising a child look" . And the fact that I look like I'm about 16 doesn't help the matter much.... (I'm actually 21) :(

  • She will give me the "look" when I tell her she cant give them candy or soda or whatever she is trying to sneek them. I actually have to tell my mom to watch her mouth around the kids. She hardly sees them and is no longer used to little kids so forgets that saying certain things isnt approprate. She also gives me the "look" when they get diciplined and she wants to baby them afterwards. I have to correct her on that too. Its like once my sibs and I grew up she forgot every she knew about raising kids.
