Son always acts up around grandma

Everytime my mom comes to visit my 3 year old son, always acts up, won't listen to me and my mom critizes the way I raise my son. Any help?

I have three kids, 14, 10, and 1 year old. My mom took my oldest son for me to go to school, she had him from the time he was 3-6 off and on. I also lived with my mom when he was born. So he spent a great deal of time around her. After this my son never listened to me. My son still wants to go live with her now. You must never let your mom critize you in front of your son or even let him hear her say anything about you. It is a very bad sign when he does not listen to you when she is around. You have to dicuss this with your mom and find some way to stop it. Each time she is around you need to make sure your the one doing the dicipline and not letting her tell you otherwise. This is your home, not hers... and you are out on your own now making your own choices for yourself and doing what you belive is right. Don't let her get over your time. As the years go by it will end up being much harder if it continues this way.
