We have asked my MIl and my sister to take care of our 14 month old daughter since I am back to work and each takes 2 days.
When my sister teaches lo so many words my MIl has focused to teach her daddy only and now LO points at every man and picture saying daddy!
Today, when I asked my MIL to work on "mommy" and put some books for her to do that, she started working on grandma instead!
She was reading the book "George " to her and practicing daddy with her by saying George' friend is daddy. I do not mind Daddy at all please don't get me wrong but why not mommy too? IF you guys have read that book to your child, there are so many women with their stroller in the book but she finds an old lady and calls her grand ma. right after I have asked her to please teach her "mommy" as well.
When we go to a family gathering, she takes my daughter from me specially when LO cries and before I know it she has grabbed her from my arms! When I ask my daughter to not to do some thing , MIL responds on her behalf saying" well, it's OK to do it some times!"
teaching my daughter to talk back at me.
I do not know how to handle this situations at all. My husband has spoke to her but she is full of surprises. Please let me know if anyone goes through the same and what to do.?
