You don't have to let her see your kids. My mother and I never got along either. She abandoned me when I was a baby, among other things. I tried to encourage a relationship between her and my two children. It failed. On the rare occasion we'd ask her to watch the kids so we could go out on a date, or just get errands done without kids in tow, she made it seem like the world's largest inconvienience to watch/play with her grand kids for an hour (We haven't spoken since Christmas). My dad is no better, for other reasons; thank goodness for my in-laws who are fabulous.
Nowhere does it say you have to let your mother see your children. You're a grown woman now and able to make these decisions yourself.
