Obviously, this is a general question and does not always apply, but from an objective perspective why do you think women argue more than their male counterparts?
Why does this question come up? On my SO's side of the family his sister(age 24) and his mom(age 50) argue like they are still in the teen years of her raising. Also, the grandmother(age 76) and the mom(age 50) argue like they are still in the teen years!! Its very frustrating for any present company, but I do not get involved unless I can say something that raises awareness after they have come to me ready to vent.
I wonder if it will affect my relationship with my daughter to see this type of behavior on a regular basis. My mother and I have a very close & respectful relationship and I hope my daughter and I are the same.
Do you think it is appropriate to let these women know their visits will be limited to seperate visits and minimal group visits if this persists? Or should I just figure a way to just make that happen without saying anything?
Any thoughts or personal experiences you all have to share?
P.S. my daughter is 7 months old.

I think the relationship you have with your daughter is pretty much in your hands- i don't have a relationship with my mother- but, my daughter is my very Best Friend & i am so blessed to have such a close relationship with her- all mom & daughters are going to have a argument every now & then b/c we are just human- i think it is all in the way it is handled..
