How do you address people talking your child to call something you do not approve of? Long story short, my stepmoms, mother, is making my son call her LaLa. She is not a nice woman and does not like my husband or my self. I don’t like that my son is forced to call her something. But I don’t know how to put it nicely
What do you want your son to call her ?
What do you want him to call her? She’s not forcing him to call her mom-mom/grandma/nana/GiGi
It’s a good alternative
What’s wrong with how you just said it? 🤷 tell step-gma just like that. What would you prefer he call her?
If she doesn’t like you or your husband why is your kid even around her?
Don’t go around her then
Lala isn’t really that bad, kids shouldn’t call adults by name until a certain age…if it is easier for your child to say Lala I would just let it be…its not a big deal.
You’re reaching here for an issue. Let this go. Just bc you have an issue with a family member doesn’t mean you have to put it on your kid too.
Does your son feel forced, or you being petty. Does she not like you for no reason, or is there a reason?
Seriously…get over yourself and it.
If it’s your stepmother’s mom aka great-grandmother… how often are you around her anyways? I, personally, feel like you should pick your battles and don’t understand what the big deal is. When raising kids, there are bigger things to worry about.
Think your being petty . She’s still his step grandma so really he could call her gma! My boys call both there step family gma and papa
Is it really a fight to pick? Sometimes you have to choose your battles & this really sound like it’s worth fighting over to me
Better than mom…my sons dad isn’t married and his gf tells my son she’s his mom
Call her Tinky Winky instead then… or maybe Po.
Wow…what’s the big deal, you have more important things in life to worry about.
I would say he should call her whatever her grandkids call her. If they call her Lala, then that’s what he should call her. And if it’s really THAT bad, shame on you for letting your kid go around her.
Oh my soul. Get over it no one said he should call her grandmother. Petty petty petty
She gets to pick her name you don’t get to dictate that.
What do you want him to call her?
