How to deal with mother's criticism

Anna - posted on 01/20/2010 ( 1 mom has responded )




After I had my kids and after my son has passed away my mother always tell me that I would never graduate school and that I can't go to college because I have kids. She would always threaten to kick me out and say things like "you killed kamyni because you let him go over his dad's house, don't have anymore kids you can't take care of them and I buy everything you have a dead man he doesn't have a car or money...he's black" and when my daughter starts acting up she always tell me "black kids are bad I don't know why you have a black boyfriend" and she never believe's in me and she always put's me down. How am I suppose to keep dealing with this? I have yelled back at her but things get worser she does it on certain days or maybe she's pms-ing

That's not criticism, that's racism. I'm not sure what to tell you, except that your mother is your mother, no matter how wrong she is about things. She probably doesn't know how to deal with your son's passing, too. Seriously, go to counseling... try to get her to go, too.
