as a mother.
im about to turn 23 and i had LO when i was 21, i work fulltime and my mom watches her while i work, also i pay her $600 a month, not much but its what i can for now.
Theres been several times that both my parents say stupid things and i let it slide but todays comment was just overboard. I drove my brother who is 11 to school, and we dont have a good relationship because obviously hes younger and i already have my little family and im older, so he started whining because i was going to drop him off, i told my mom how he was acting and she said that my own baby doesnt want to leave with me and also cries.
They always make comments that i dont do anything with my LO and that i never take her anywhere.
im just fed up and tired of them disrespecitng me like that. They act like they were the best parents.

They said that your baby cries and doesn’t want to be with you????
I’m not a mother but was under the impression that babies cry period because they are babies? And your child is now toddler correct? So that’s not cool.
Why do you suppose they say things like that?

If he doesn’t want you to drive him to school he can walk.

i dont know, they baby my brother waaay too much to the point where hes rude and they dont say anything.
they would never let him walk, and i didnt have a problem taking him, they just say stupid things.

Two unfortunate truths.
#1 – your little brother can walk if he’s unhappy with his ride.
#2 – you can find a new babysitter if you’re unhappy with their attitude.
Your parents should respect you, but it sounds like you interact with them so much because you’re taking advantage of low-cost daycare. Maybe they feel a little bit taken advantage of, or feel like they’re parenting for you? It’s a fine line with grandparents when they have your kids for so much time. It’s a provider-client relationship, yet they’re still doing you a favor.

i agree, and on top of it we live together which doesnt help the situation, FI says for us to move out and our relationship wont be so strained.
i only work because were buying a duplex together under FI and my name, something that benefits them and us.
