My parents hate it when I correct my own child: Advice?

Hello, please post. I don’t write on these things fed often or ask advice. Ok, so my 8-year-old came home with an attitude from her friend’s house. She has been rude and treating everyone like crap today. Well, my parents are over, and it’s like God forbid if I even correct my child. Then they have a problem … or it’s just tension all around. My mom actually said we are leaving because she didn’t like that I made her go to her room for the night. It’s like I’m not allowed to correct my children in my own house without feeling judged. Does anyone else deal with this? Advice, please!?

I would tell her she raised you and she is going to allow you to raise her

Stick to your guns and if they want to leave, let them. You are the parent.

I could under stand grandma getting upset if she was there for a visit
You could have grounded her tomorrow
Family time is priority parents won’t be around forever

Don’t invite them over if you cannot correct your child in your own home without them being rude to you. Limit contact outside the house. Let them know that if they are going to be rude about you being a parent to your own child that they will have limited time with or around your child.

Just keep raising your child how you see best. Grandma can stop visiting if she doesn’t like it.

Look at the bright side, if your mom is being nasty and doesn’t like how you’re raising your child with respect and manners… It’s a good way to get your mom to leave, next time just let you kid in on it…

So her grandparents come to visit and you send her to her room? Why couldn’t she have been punished after they left or the next day? Seems rude to me that they come to see her and can’t.

My mom is like this too! I told my son he couldn’t open everyone else’s gifts during family Christmas and my mom walked right out because I told him not to do something, she came back in shortly after but yes she is like this too. It’s like walking on eggshells but I’ve explained to her I need to be able to discipline my child from time to time and she should’ve disciplined me a little bit more possibly.

I’m sorry I refuse to let my kid act like an asshole or think it’s ok regardless of who’s at MY house… I would’ve done the same thing and kudos to you for not allowing her to act that way…and as far as your parents go, they’ll get over it and if they don’t that’s their problem

Let them leave. Stand your ground.

I would tell her to leave then. It’s your house and your daughter. Anytime my daughter is disrespectful I pull her up In front of family etc and I have no issues sending her to her room. I’m lucky my parents respect my decisions.
I also am strongly disagreeing with all the people saying she could have been disciplined the next day because family is over. That’s teaching your kid they can and will get away with anything when nan and pa etc are around and the kids will obviously play on it and make it worse.

Tell them to get over it.

I would sit them down and tell them how you feel. Its your house and your child in the end. So if they cant act the right way when they are there then dont let them come over anymore.
