I recently moved in with husband to my mother in law's house and she is always calling my 4year old daughter (her grand daughter) negative names, picking on her and pointing out only the bad things my daughter does! I don't really know how to handle this situation! I usually call my daughter and tell her every time some one does something like that to say "stop don't do that" and walk away!
I also understand that she was raised that way and that is the way she raised her sons, BUT name calling from someone who my daughter loves is bad for her self esteem!
So how can I let my mother in law know that she needs to stop that with out sounding rude, offending her, or hurting her feelings?
