I need help on how to tell my mother in law when enough is enough. We have 2 beautiful daughters 3 years and 6 weeks.
When we are at the MIL's and it is time to eat she wants to spoon feed my 3 year old so that she does not make a mess on her table, She will wipe her mouth/hands after everybite, and hold the sippy cup when she drinks.
When Z does not want to eat her dinner she will give her pudding or what ever she has on hand. When we tell Z no desert unless you eat your dinner and Z goes cry to MIL she will tell her your mommy said no but i would give it to you.
Z is potty trained but she still insists that when she goes over for the day that we send pull ups and she will keep her in them all day.
When we discipline her when we are there (which is making her sit in the hall where she can not see anyone) and she cries MIL will go pick her up and say what did that mean mommy do to you to make you cry.
It makes me want to pull my hair out. Me and my husband have talked with her several times about this but nothing changes
