> My mother is huffy and critical with my daughter but goes on and on about my son. He is 16 and easygoing; my daughter is 14 and more temperamental. For her birthday, my mother gave her a small pad of paper. Do I do anything? I have already worked with my daughter to understand that even if Grandma is mean to her, she needs to take the high road. My mother wasn’t like this when I was growing up.
