Boundaries with mom
How do you all handle setting boundaries. My mom I feel has crossed every boundary I have tried to set.
1. NO JUICE
2. Please no strangers holding / touching babies hands or face
3. Don’t talk a certain way with him
ETC. he is 8 months and I’m just so tired of it. Every time i set these boundaries I’m being told that I am “saddity”. How that even equals out in her head really baffles me. Oh - Also, you first time moms just don’t like to listen and that’s a problem. I want to raise him differently - that’s the big picture!!!
Ahh I’m a first time mom and here’s my opinion; You’re the mother, not her, she is YOUR mother, not your child’s, and needs to respect your rules. If anyone doesn’t like the way you mother, then don’t look! If they wanna be around, ask them to kindly respect your wishes. :)
