You have no right to tell me what I can and cannot do with MY daughter!
OK now that the background has been taken care of my dd turned 13 while at her dads this year. I set her up her own cupboard in the bathroom with a razor and shaving cream, bath stuff, tampons, some light makeup...girly stuff. I was telling her dad about what I had set up so far and sent a pic for my daughter to see. Later I received a text from his fiance stating some pretty horrible stuff.
She stated that my dd was not old enough to shave her legs or use tampons and that by buying her adult bath products I was setting her up to have low self esteem. Seriously lady I just bought the girl some calgon and some body spray. I don't get how looking and smelling good will effect her self esteem negatively.
I understand that when I was in a coma and it wasn't known if I would survive she stepped up into a more active parent role and I do appreciate that. Am I wrong in being offended by her taking it upon herself to tell me how I should parent my children simply because I fell ill and dad had to step up for a period of time?
I haven't responded to her specificly aside from asking my exh if he sees an issue with allowing her to start shaving and wear makeup. He said I'm her mother and that ball is in my court. I am kind of in shock because I've never had an issue of any sort with her now I feel she is way overstepping her boundaries with my children and I.
Sorry so long I just really had to vent somewhere. Bottom line is these are my children and I will parent them how I see fit. She is entitled to her opinions but I will not tolerate her expressing them in such a disrespectful and attacking manner.
