Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

My Aunt told my 8 year old son, "Your Mom is UGLY!"

My aunt has always been a difficult person, kind of a bitch.  She can be nice and generous, and my kids love her.  The last visit I had with her, she was a total bitch, so I was going to keep my distance from her for awhile.  I was talking to my cousin about our Aunt, telling her I'm thinking of going and visiting her.  When I got off the phone with my cousin, my 8 year old son came up to me and said, " I have to tell you something. The last time we were at Aunt Patty's house, we were on Facebook playing a game and your photo popped up, and Aunt Patty whispered in my ear, "Your Mom is pretty ugly, she looks really ugly in that photo!"  My son didn't want to tell me, he was afraid my feelings would be hurt!  My question is, what the heck should I do?  Should I confront her, I really don't know?

I wouldn't confront her...it wouldn't do anything. I'd just keep my distance from now on.

i think i would talk to her first. after all, she is their aunt! ask her to not say mean stuff like that around your kids. that's just teaching them to make fun of people behind their backs! i wouldn't want to just stop all contact, then your kids might start asking why they can't see her anymore. but whatever you choose will be best for you and your kids!! so best of luck!
