I fell down the basement steps and broke my leg. I was lucky I had my cell phone with me. I have two kids ages five and seven and my Mom came to help out. She doesn’t do anything right and pretty much lets the kids do what they want. This is really getting on my nerves. How can I get her to do things the way I want? She doesn’t seem to hear me.
Your Mom has been doing things her way all of her life. She probably doesn’t want to change her way of doing things. Right now you really need her help and even though her way is different from yours, you can survive for a while. If she wasn’t there how would you handle this? You could hire someone to do things your way but they may not do things exactly right either. Take a deep breath and try to relax. You will eventually be able to have your life back.
