i have a daughter who is turning two in december, i have been unemployed for the last two months and recently got a new job. The babysitter her great grandma has not been giving her naps and when we get home she is so tire and just acts out. Screaming, hitting, yelling for meme (her grandma my future inlaw) and wont settle until meme brings her to her bedroom and rocks her after about five minutes of alone time with meme shes fine? I am so frustrated because we live with the future inlaws and she just butts in whenever she wants and when I try to take her back and get her to calm down I am the bad parent the witch. Help me I dont know what to do?!

I think you need to talk to your future hubby and get him on your side. And then you should both sit down with your future in-law and explain what you want to be done with your daughter. If she can't respect what you want with your daughter maybe you need to look at getting a different sitter. If you do go with a different sitter maybe you could say that you want the grandma to be a grandma and be able to spoil her some but that your daughter needs to be with other kids her age.
