Can A Grandmother's Love Be Overbearing by Taliban: 2:04pm On Jun 01, 2013
My fellow nairalanders in the mature family section has anyone had an issues with the topic especially the women. Cos my wife keeps having issues with her mom on how to take care of our child. According to my wife her mom wants to tell her what to do and expects her to comply. This issue is actually putting a big strain on their relationship. So pls advise how can this be sorted out? As a guy I don't want to get involved in the issue but at least I just try to calm down my wife and tell her not to say something she will regret. Let share experiences and best practices for dealing with issues like this.

Then, tell your wife to simply answer ok to her ideas and do what she pleases with her child since they are separated by distance.Its easier for her to pretend she agrees than outrightly rejecting her ideas.

Yes smart way of dealing with it. But what happens when they visit each other? Cos the last issue happened when my wife spent a couple of days with her.

The elderly should be followed with wisdom,most of them believe they know it all.its hard to let them know that their retrogressive methods doesn't work anymore.i always use this line "His doctor said it should be this way",at this point any reasonable mother should know to back off.
