When I was six years old I was taken away from my birth mom for neglect, severe abuse, and malnourishment on all five of her children. Since then I was adopted, grew up and re-kindled a once broken relationship with her. I am 23 years old and have fully forgiven her for anything that happened. However, that doesn't change the fact that she doesn't know how to raise a baby. She believes in cry it out and won't listen when I ask her not to feed my six month old potatoes. On the other hand, his other grandmother is great. Without hurting feelings, how do I tell my mom that she is a great grandma, but not babysitting material?
