Great Grandma is turning my toddler into a BRAT!
My daughters great grandma (my grandma) watches my daughter when ever I need a sitter. I know how blessed and fortunate I am to have free child care and unlimited access to dropping her off at a moments notice. I cant seem to get GG on board with any sort of discipline or basic common knowledge on how to guide a toddler. Things like handing a cup of permanent makers to her to play with at the kitchen table and turned her back to wash dishes. When I walked in and saw the scene my daughter had maker all over her entire body and I am the instant bad guy for taking the makers away and scolding her for not drawing on paper:( GG refuses to deny my daughter anything she wants and this results in a very tired strung out 2 yo by the time i get back. GG wont even look at me if I do discipline my daughter in any way. Its created a horrible relationship between me and my grandmother. I don't want to keep my daughter from her but my child's safety and up bringing are lacking when GG watches her. I also cant afford daycare by any means:( I hate that my sweet little girl has turned into such a brat as a result of GG letting her do what ever she wants. Any advice? I've tried talking to her. My mother has tried talking to her. Do I keep my daughter from her when I'm not around or continue to allow GG to watch my daughter and hope I can keep her from being a total brat as she gets older?
