    Hey ya'll! Today on my channel we are reacting to some MOMZILLAS that are on another level. Moms and Mother In Laws can be a total blessing, we all love a momma bear. But when your mom or MIL goes off the rails, they go all the way off. Enjoy these INSANE MOMS.

      So being the "disappointment". My dad's mom hated my mom so she took it out on me n my baby sis. my 2 older brothers (different mom) got literally garbage bags (each) of Xmas gifts, me and my sis got dollar store Barbies n that was also my bday gift to (I'm a Xmas baby). They also said my dad was the greatest. Yea the greatest at beating me like a grown man. Woke me up so I watch him beat my mom n then me. My lil sis don't remember much she said she only remember darkness, but that's cuz I would hide her under clothes or under bed with stuff shoved in front of her. But hey he was the bestest

    I was born on my moms birthday, we are 28 years apart and she’s always acted like it’s only her birthday. The only party I ever had was my 1st birthday party and she still tried to make it about her. My 16th, 18th and 21st? Didn’t exist, just about her. When I met and married my husband I found out his moms birthday is the same as mine as well. She’s so excited to share a birthday and even though we live several states apart we’re planning a belated birthday lunch when we come to visit in June.

      I’m so sorry. My mom’s birthday is the day before mine and she would often forgo celebrating her’s so that mine wouldn’t feel like a second. She even tried to have me the day before hers so I wouldn’t be after her because she never wanted me to feel second to her. Now that I’m older we see it as double the fun and I always make sure to celebrate her’s as much as mine. My birthday would also sometimes fall in Father’s Day so if that happened we’d celebrate her’s and mine the day before and then my dad the day after.

    Ok but the father who allows his mother to talk to his daughter like that is the real villain here. lol Like 100%. That mom clearly did a big number on him if he truly believes that behavior is fine and not completely toxic. I'm assuming he received the exact treatment growing up and is so gaslighted that he can't see it. I wouldn't stay with a man who didn't protect his children. Period.

      No family member nor "friend" should cause your child(ren) to cry or feel less than!!! If you hear about or actually hear it, as in this case...IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AS A PARENT TO STOP IT!! YOU ARE HIS/HER PROTECTOR!! DO YOUR DAMN JOB!!!

    My mother was a lot like this. She would say things to purposely embarrass people. And then use the excuse "I'm just telling the truth". And she wondered why I never wanted to see her after my parents divorced. 😮 Classic narcissist using the "telling the truth" reason to insult people.

      "Telling it as it is". More like, "telling it as I see it". They're not the same. In fact, individuals like this usually have a pretty warped, self-serving perspective on things.
      They think they're being clever using the 'truth bomb' excuse when they're really just demonstrating their poor impulse control and lack of emotional intelligence.
      That said, they know it's not okay. The give-away is their utter indignation when treated the way they treat others.

    As a pianist of (almost) 6 years, the story with the daughter’s performances and the grandmother pointing out each and every single flaw; not to mention flat out telling her that the performance was a “disappointment”?! How the hell does one have the balls to say that to a 13 year old kid who’s just learning an instrument?! The mother handled the situation like a champ, the husband didn’t even do shit in standing up for his child. The first thing ANY parent should think about is their CHILD. I do NOT care if it’s your mother or your father, but when your child’s self-esteem is berated; let alone being put down by her own grandmother and the FATHER does nothing?! Absolute mama’s boy for sure. Ultimately, I don’t think OP is the AH in this. Her reasoning is solid. If I were her, I would do the same thing she did. Also, if anyone is a beginner pianist, don’t let jerks bring you down just because you mess up a few notes. You’re learning and with practice and patience you’ll get better everyday! ✨

      I'd have the kid play the next performance - a duet with Grandma. Just wheel a second piano out and call the old bag up on stage. Have a page turner point at middle C and stop playing every time that note occurs in the piece, have the guy point and wait until Grandma poinks that key. Five minutes of comedy gold. Then go nc

      I'm not surprised by the things some people say to their children. my friends ex-husband once yelled at his two year old ( now 4) for not throwing a fit when she has to walk. which was not true he was just jealous of me and the our friend Jon because his kids like us more then him. so he picked her up and the 4 month old baby and left. i was just like so you want you daughter to do the opposite of what you're
      doing. however what made me laugh was 15 min later i was walking around with her and she was perfect we passed him. of course he then asked her if she stole a keychain i gave her. like im sorry your daughter is two ahe can barely talk and has no idea what you mean.

    It's sad to see people putting up with loved ones criticizing their children like that. Especially from parents/inlaws/family in general. My mothers step mom had a HUGE chokehold on her in that aspect for a long time. My mom would always try to make sure we were dressed and presented perfectly when we went to visit. But that absolute monster always had something to say about how poorly we looked. My mom never let on that this would happen. She just obsessed more and more over making us as a family presentable. Step monster also always had a "favorite" grand child, and it was always one of my brothers. And when my niece was born she made a comment to my mom about how "at least you get to spend time with your grand daughter" (for context, she has a bio grand daughter, I've never met her, I'm sure there's a great reason for that) I've always felt like I never existed to her. When I did exist to her, it was always negative. Needless to say, I never want to see her again. There are so many more stories and examples. This isn't even the tip of the iceberg. 🥲

      My mom is really nice, but she always critiziced the way I acted during friends/family visits (she did it with good intention, but she was over-the-top). Result ? Now, at 31 yo, I just never hang out with anybody, because I always feel that I can't say and do the right things. I just feel good when I'm alone. :(

      ❤️ I wish I wouldn't be feeling this so much. My grandma used to comment about everything what we did wrong, as in "cut the butter the wrong way, now it doesn't look nice anymore!" wtf 🙄 and also always had something to say about pimples, moles and weight - she really killed my selfesteem because the "favorite grandchild" game were played too and my cousins are much more quite and shy. To this day I remember things I'm sure I shouldn't have in my head. My mom somehow learned to not give fs pretty early so she tried to keep it easy on us. Thanks for that 🙏

      I cut off contact completely at this point. When I was 18, I decided not to invite her to my grad party. That also included most of my moms family. The party was great, though. I saw her again a few times through my mid 20s. I'm 31 now, and I am done for good. I haven't seen her since my SIL's baby shower. I told the rest of my family if she's going to be invited, dont bother asking me to go. I almost cut off my mom, as well. She finally got help. Our relationship is better. Still not great, but better. Thank you all for your kind words and support. I didn't think this would catch so much traction.

    My mom was a big daddy’s girl. Every time I saw him, he’d ask about the classes I wasn’t doing well in. This on top of the cheek pinching, ear pulling, birthday spankings, etc, that I always said no to and he kept doing, even into my late teens. Mom always brushed it off, but I couldn’t sleep at their house if he was awake. As an adult, I mentioned these things again in front of my father, but he said he’d always assumed we were safe w grandmother there (she was an angel, and I’ll never understand why she chose my grandfather). Needless to say, I didn’t really grieve when he passed because I had no fond memories of him. I always felt a little guilty about that, but watching this makes me feel a little better. That girl’s father and grandma are wretched, and she will grow up with the mental scars (speaking from experience)

      @Danielle King. Same here. My mother once explained her mom to us as someone who was raised in the "children should be seen and not heard" era. This explanation came after a visit to Grandma and Grandpa's house that resulted in a huge fight between our dad and grandmother because she yelled at us for jumping on beds and being loud and my dad didn't appreciate someone else yelling at us for once lol. Never been upset that my mom would go for years without speaking to her mother.

      I was the same about my paternal grandmother at her funeral. I wasn't really sad or grieving. She was a cold woman and didn't like little kids because they would dirty up her house and she always made sure it was spotless (go figure.... lovely lady). On the flip-side, my paternal grandfather was so warm and sweet and everyone loved him.

      So sorry you had this experience.
      I can relate. My grandfather used to make fun of how I looked, tickle me really hard even when I told him to stop, call me hurtful names, give me wet willys (licking his finger and sticking it in my ear), and more. I hated it and he made me cry, which he'd then call me a cry baby and to get over it. My dad (his son) never stood up to him because it was "just a joke". I don't see either of them anymore. They're both incredibly toxic people I'm happier without.

My girls grandad (on her dads side) came over during the holidays and commented on her weight, that she had put some on and was starting to look fat 😤 nope 🙅🏻‍♀️ I had words with him then he did it again… told my partner he wasn’t welcome back in my house.

He’d make comments about my weight, wouldn’t let me eat and was forcing me to run on a treadmill at 10 years old. Needless to say, I had an eating disorder by the time I was 12. Tell your daughter every day how beautiful she is. That’s what I do with my daughter now, and she’s the happiest, most confident and sassiest kid I’ve ever met.

      My mother had words with my uncle and grandfather after she heard them making comments about mine and my cousin's weights when we were early teens. They weren't trying to be hurtful, but she pretty much straight up told them they were not, under any circumstances, to talk about it. She grew up with a fair amount of body image issues, and she's never been really fat, but... our genetics keep us well insulated, let's put it that way.

    as someone who cant play music anymore due to trauma, that mother needs to protect her daughter as much as she can. if that means divorce or some sort of separation from her father and grandmother, then so be it.
    i dedicated my life to music out of necessity, despite the pain (physical and emotional) it caused me. i finally changed my path in life after a bout of physical therapy, and have only gotten better from here. i know my situation is a lot different than the girl in the story, but for her sake, her mother needs to make some serious changes

      Some grand-mothers act like that because they can't accept the fact that their son has someone more important than them in their life (is married or in a serious relationship with someone and/or have a child with someone). Their son is their property and any "stranger" aka their daughter in law or grandchildren are seen as obstacles between their son and them and they will continuously pick at them and try to separate them. This type of grand-mother is disgusting and pure evil !

      Seriously. Even if he husband isn't directly criticizing, his actions/inaction speak volumes to his daughter. I hope the daughter gets away from the sewage of a person that is her grandma.
      My mother loved to sing, I did too (still do). When I was 9, I went to live with her again, and initially I would join in on her singing and have fun with it. She wondered why I stopped after a few months. WELL, she and her boyfriend mocked me for singing in the shower. I came out one night, and heard them laughing and imitating me. They continued even after I had entered the room, they thought it was absolutely hilarious. I'm not amazing, I'm pretty decent, but 9 year old me thought I had to be awful at it. I'm 31 now and have only recently been kind of okay with anyone that I'm not close to hearing me sing. I did karaoke for the first time in August of 2019 and I had to be moderately intoxicated to handle it. It was fun and the crowd responded so kindly (I even got a high five!). It was a bittersweet experience.

      The sad thing that it's his daughter who is suffering and will have life long trauma. This kind of trauma is likely to make her doubt her own abilities and settle for an abusive relationship or for a poor workplace because she won't believe she deserves any better. I really hope that poor kid can get away from that horrible man.

    Y'know, I also had an adult telling me how stupid he thought I was when I was 7 because I was struggling with math. Spoiler alert: it was my father! The bullying didn't stop there, but I feel like that's a preeeetty important highlight.
    I cut him out of my life when I was 12, and it was honestly one of the best decisions I have ever made. He missed out on my first job, my prom and other dances, my graduation, the release of my book, and everything I've ever done since I told him that I never wanted to hear from him again.

    My (now ex) husbands mom convinced him to move us across the country to be closer to them. I did not want to, but got kinda railroaded into it. Well wouldn’t you know, in the 2 years since we’ve been here with her heavily influencing our lives, our marriage caved. In November when we were having problems, I took my rings off. I later found texts from her telling him to kick me out, change the locks and drain our bank accounts.
    He said “she’s just trying to protect me”
    😂 I’m the mother of her grandchildren, and I have no one here. She was straight up going to have me be homeless if he had taken her advice. Fuck that biiiitch.

    The story involving the grandmother and the granddaughter with the piano is messed up. Makes me grateful my parents never did that and offered actual constructive criticism with my hobbies. No grandmother or husband should act that way. Plus, playing any sort of music is a great skill and can lead to scholarships even if she doesn’t major in music by the time she hits college.

      My Mom criticized me constantly for everything from my clothes, hair, weight, attitude, etc. The 2 things that were untouchable were any hobbies (athletic, musical, dance, baking, sewing) and schoolwork (I was top 10 in school and even smarter than her can-do-no-wrong sons). If I was out there doing something in front of others, whether I was good or not. I got encouragement and lived for those moments. In my 60's, my self esteem is still in the toilet thanks to the other criticisms. I think Mom was just a narcissist who encouraged things people could praise HER for "she's so smart" "she's such a good cook" "she did well on stage" and hated me for things she thought embarrassing (too long hair, shirts too short, too fat, too skinny (yes, I was both at different times), not an important enough job, etc.)

    I’m sorry to say that I’m not shocked about the husband’s response to his wife asking not to invite MIL to their daughter’s performances. My guess is that he was gaslit his entire life by his mother and bent over backwards and accepted her insults as truth. He just learned to “take it” from her. My mom was sometimes the same way - I was driven to suicidal ideology but finally learned to stand up for myself and believe in myself and not her lies. I’m happy to report we have a much better relationship now.
    Back to their story - the mom of their 13-year-old daughter did what her daughter was too scared to do. She stood up to her abusive MIL and husband was unfortunately brainwashed by all the gaslighting. Husband doesn’t see a problem with the way his mother is insulting their daughter because he’s used to it - sad reality. Mom absolutely has the right to ask that MIL not come to performances because I feel like the least a grandparent figure should do is to be supportive and if she can’t even do that and is destroying her granddaughter’s self-esteem she shouldn’t be invited. I feel terrible for their situation.
    All that being said, Charlotte I think you’re an amazing content creator and I watch you daily!!! You always cheer me up even if it’s bitching at stupid people like this!!! Makes me feel like I’m not crazy!

      I had the same stuff with my mom. Gas lit by her vitcimhood my whole life. Finally after many many years of dealing with psychotic mom and seeing how well my dad was doing after they divorced when I was 25, and counseling for stuff in my own life falling apart. I finally started to see how toxic she was in my life and cut her off for over a year. She acted like she changed some so we very slowly let her back into our lives a little at a time and then she was good for a bit and recently went full blown crazy again. Now that I really see who she is I can look back and see lots of things in my childhood that caused me trauma growing up that I had no idea What I had really been through.
      To those of you with super toxic mothers, set hard boundaries and stick to them. If they break them cut them off. Trust me your life will be so much better off without that toxic narcissist trying to sabotage your life.

      He’s in so deep that even his arguments don’t make sense. He said him and his mom agreed that they want his daughter to become a doctor; his mom said that the wife is wasting HIS money on something as useless as piano lessons; Yet he says that what his mom is doing is constructive criticism. Constructive criticism is pointing out errors and give advice in how to improve. So he is pretty much a hypocrite cuz, the idea of giving constructive criticism is that you want that person to improve and get better in what they’re doing, a.k.a. approving of what they’re doing. In my opinion, there’s no other route than to divorce. I played in my head; even if they get couples therapy he would find a way to insert his mother into their COUPLES THERAPY.

I was naive. Then I met people, 2 sisters who were raped by their own Dad, others with physically or mentally abusive parents & I came to an understanding... some of them deserved to be alone in the hospital room, they brought it upon themselves.

    When my mother started to criticize my sons artwork and always in front of my then wife but never in front of me, I had a talk with her, caught her a few times later on and she always said it was to help him get better. I pointed out telling him he wasn't good was not helpful. I warned her more than once and when she didn't stop, I did something I thought I'd never do, I told her no more. I cut her out, between treating my son like that, she didn't treat my wife well either (see, I married the "wrong" woman in her eyes), so that was it, I love my mom, but I chose my son and wife over it all. She didn't think I'd follow through. I did. I'm divorced now, but that has nothing to do with anything I talked about here. WHOLE other story. My son? 33 now and still drawing and painting, sends me updates and pics of his work on a regular basis and I love it.

      As a kid, I wanted to be an author for my job. Specifically sci-fi or fantasy. My parents were programmers (well, technically managers and team leads, but their job was originally programming). Although they knew the likelihood of my writing bringing in enough money to live off of was very low, especially with the markets flooding with self published works, they never tried to put me down or dissuade me from writing. In fact, my mother highly encouraged it and still loves to read what I write to this day.
      Well, come high school, I wrote something that got an award. My English teachers all loved me. I joined and even hosted writers groups.
      In college, I took a computer science course and realized that, even though I love to write, I love the challenge of coding as well. Since I'd been exposed to coding and computers for most of my life, I felt comfortable getting a programming job because I'd listened to all the talk about it. My parents were obviously happy, but they still encouraged me to keep up writing since it was a passion of mine.
      If I'd been told to get a programming job as a child and lived my life being pushed towards it, I never would have done it. I would have resented it every step of the way because it wasn't my choice. I literally can't imagine what it'd be like to have parents who deny you *your* dream so you follow *their* dream.

    As someone who has had to deal with asshole family members putting me down my entire life and now seeing the pattern repeat through my daughter when she attends family events, (since i no longer attend and there is no one else to pick on) hearing about other situations where family destroys a childs self confidence and trying to dictate the direction their lives are to go in, brings me peace but also triggers rage in me. Peace because its nice to know we are not the only ones who are experiencing toxic family members and their dysfunctional behaviors, but rage because no one should have to tolerate such bullshit. Especially from family. Thankfully my daughter and I are on the same page and can move forward by avoiding them and events now as much as possible until we can move out of state and have a fresh start. But it seems that the woman with the aspiring piano player child is in a much irritating situation as its her own husband who cant see how toxic his mother is acting towards his daughter. I think it needs to be normalized that it's okay to cut family off when they are harming you more than they are supporting you. As well as calling out their toxic behaviors so they know why they are being cut off. Family doesnt mean you need to put up with abuse. Hopefully they can work this situation out without getting a divorce. But it kind of sounds like her husband is just as toxic as his mother. So a divorce may not be a bad idea in the long run. Parents need to stop expecting their children to be who they want them to be and let them be who they are.

    I ended up being the “golden child” growing up. It was not great. I grew up seeing how miserably my mom treated my siblings (my dad went to prison when I was young, so he wasn’t in the picture growing up), and so I must have subconsciously thought that if I suppress everything about myself and let her do whatever, I’d be loved. I watched her sit there and make commentary on how each of us must look perfect and pretty at all times, would casually call us ugly, comment on things about our bodies that we couldn’t change (eg., our breasts, one of my sister’s noses, weight gain due to medical conditions that she wouldn’t get us treatment for…) and control every aspect of everything she did. She even set me up with my first boyfriend who was toxic and coerced me on multiple occasions through our seven year relationship after I told her I didn’t think I wanted to get married (For context, I’m aro/ace and just cannot see myself in physically or romantically intimate relationships). My eldest sister is actually considered mentally disabled because of her PTSD from our mom and barely leaves her bedroom or office if she’s not accompanied by her dogs. I did everything and anything my mom said because I was dead to rights convinced that if I didn’t, I would die alone and miserable and burn in Hell. It took me about four years after her new husband kicked me out for me to realize she wasn’t a saint who deserved the kind of love and affection I showed her, and another five to figure out who the hell I was (Fun Fact! I’m still figuring that out, but I’m pretty sure I’ve got it). Now, just like every other child she had except her eldest son and youngest daughter, I am a disappointment and need to be prayed for, because I am trans nonbinary, I will not be marrying, and - gasp - will never let her near any children I will be having. I currently live in America, and plan to move to Norway with the guy I’m co-parenting with for a multitude of reasons, but that is one of the bigger ones. Might be a bit petty of me to be choosing to move to an entirely different country in an entirely different continent to keep her out of the picture, but hey! We’re here with the Duchess of Petty, bite me

For that, I wanted to work in radio. Rock radio. My step-dad constantly berated me and told me I wasn’t good at doing anything but art. And that I would be doing Art for a living because that was all I was good for. In the end, he destroyed my passion for art which was sad because it used to help me relax. He made it so it only brought me stress. Oh I and did work rock radio in the end. For 15 years. My step dad was an ad man for radio and had loads of contacts and refused to help me.

    I can definitely relate to this. My mom has been extremely emotionally and now financially abusive in order to control me, my siblings, and my dad. I've had her gaslight me to the point I don't trust my memory very well. She's stigmatized emotion in the whole house to the point no one ever really shows anything except anger. I never got to the point of being angry, and being the oldest I got berated the most due to my high sensitivity and inability to physically stop myself from crying. She convinced all my siblings that there was something wrong with me to where my younger sister (who was around 12 at the time) told me I needed to go to a mental hospital for crying, because my mom would scream at me saying "either you stop crying and act like an adult or I'm going to send you to pschy". She also has been telling me to quit band since I was a sophomore in high school and still tells me to quit college marching band. I'd rather die than not be in the band. For the financial control thing, she likes to spend money on "gifts" and then use them against me. This includes a letterman jacket, college tuition, and other things. My siblings will also use this against me where everyone tells me "I'm being ungrateful" since I avoid going back to my house (I spend my breaks with my now fiance) and every time I even try to criticize our mom in any way. I'll try explaining to my younger siblings how the way our mother treats us, especially me and our dad is not ok and is abusive, but the younger one's will just say "but she pays for stuff" like it excuses everything else.
    There's a whole lot more I could talk about but I think the absolute worst thing she does is the verbal and emotional abuse of our father. The poor man just takes it and has told us numerous times to just take it like there isn't any other way to deal with her. She tells him, us, and anyone who has ears how lazy my dad is, how he used to drink and do drugs, that he's stupid, doesn't appreciate her, probably flirts with other women, etc. It's awful. He's such an awesome man and completely opposite of what she claims. He's incredibly smart and hard working, he was top of his class when going to college years after high school, he's a carpenter and extremely talented, he's a whole lot nicer to us, has a lot of patience, and has been clean for over 20 years.

    me: what sanctity? these bitches are shitting on the daughter. protect her at all costs

    That story with the grandmother makes me think that the husband doesn't even talk to his own daughter or he would understand what she's feeling and would try to respect her. At least the girl knows that her mom supports her. But I really feel like their marriage won't end well unless they move far away from that woman or she dies soon.

      I do not believe that removing the MIL is the answer to solving what would appear to be serious already present issues in the marriage. The MIL’s obvious public displays of contempt for the granddaughter is a separate issue which is unfortunately also unmasking and magnifying the aforementioned marital issue.
      Unless the husband suddenly grows a spine and acts to protect his daughter and wife I cannot see how the issues can be resolved.

    "overreacting" is the word men use to undermine women when they try to raise valid point of concerns.... Also a father who decided the career of his daughter long before she even discovered herself and will try everything to make her quit any other interests is the one really controlling.

    I have a feeling the father didn't see the issue with his mother being mean because he doesn't know anything else and is so used to her "tOuGh LoVe" style. Arguing with someone that doesn't know any other option can't change their mind so what I would do is offer her mother to come along too then the father can see how other grandmothers act. The grannies would probably argue and maybe the father would finally feel embarrassed, I don't know but the maternal grandmother could change it so much.

    Wow did this ever bring back memories of my mom when my kids were growing up. At one point she told me that I was helping lead my children to hell. Things built to a point where during a fight I actually HAD TO CALL THE POLICE to have her removed from our property... it took a couple of years of no contact before she mellowed enough for us to allow her back into our lives. I'm so grateful that my older sister, who my mom listens to, backed us up.

    Chose to study nursing as I could be independent from my mother sooner. Left when I was 18, only came back 7 years later due to necessity (sick children with no dependable childcare). Guess what, a marriage, 2 children, a good job and maturity were still not enough to make my mother proud of me.
    She's 92, I am 63 and this will probably continue until one of us die.

      Toxic parents are the worst! My dad was like that. All in the name of pushing us to do our best he kept criticizing us completely destroying our self confidence. I’m still in talking terms with him and old age has made him lot more calmer and he can no longer interfere in our lives and choices but the damage done in the past is hard to undo.

    Some of these remind me of my future mother-in-law and sister-in-laws 😂 they are all sociopaths and I’m glad my future mother-in-law no longer has access to our daughter. She blamed my future husband for things he has no control of and started to blame him for her and I not having a “closer relationship” when she treated him like the black sheep. She gave him no attention until our daughter and I became part of his life. I stood up for him for the way she treated him and apparently she didn’t like that. She told me I needed to respect my elders and I told her no. That I’m going to stand up for my loved ones even if I’m standing up against family. No one treats people who are dear to me in any negative way.

If they want my honest opinion, I'll give it. Outside of that, it's on them and I am just there for support. So far my adult kids still like to hang with me lol (also helps to have a lot of kids.

      Yeah, I’m definitely more disappointed in the “dad” who is not protecting his child from that criticism than anyone else in that story. Even the grandma may have redeeming qualities (although compassion and emotional intelligence is not among them) but a male parent (I can’t even call him a dad) that can’t see the damage it does to his daughter and protect her from that doesn’t deserve the family he has. You know he endured that same treatment growing up and quit a good many things because of it but now he sees it as normal instead of as something that needs to change.

      @BebbyChad My dad was always quick with the "dad jokes". When someone used a swear word, he would pretend to be shocked and say, "I will not tolerate foul language! It's not that I give a damn, but it sounds like Hell!"
      My mom hated it when he said "Jesus Christ!" when surprised or annoyed. She would tell him to never take the Lord's name in vain.
      He would answer, "I'm not! I MEANT it!"

    My grandchildren live (with their parents) hundreds of miles away. When I want to see them I use ZOOM or hop on a jet. I do NOT demand that their parents relocate to a place near me.
    Criticism of her piano playing should be left to her PIANO TEACHER. Even if grandmother were a professional pianist, it is NOT FOR HER to criticize the girl. Leave it to the piano teacher.
    Demeaning the girl pianist is a SHOW STOPPER. If spouse does not consent to absence of his mother, wife should try each of these in order:
    1. Marital counseling
    2. Absolute no contact between grandmother and girl
    3. If both of these fail, then DIVORCE is in order. Children come FIRST, ahead of in-laws and even spouses. She should NOT permit her daughter to be abused. PERIOD.
