Her Mother Is Treating Her Son Like Her Own and She Won’t Allow It as She Thinks She Was a Terrible Mom

A woman recently asked if she was wrong for getting angry at her mom for treating her son as if he was her own. She didn’t feel that the mom had been a good mom during her own childhood and didn’t want her son to be a ‘do-over’.

The woman and her husband temporarily lived with her mother and the couple’s infant child. Recently, the woman and her mother had a chat at the end of a long day.

She was devastated by her mother’s words

Her mother said something that “broke her for multiple reasons.” Her mother said that having the baby in her house was like her “do-over,” and the baby was what she looked forward to at the end of the day.

Her father was not around in her youth, so she was passed to her grandparents a lot to be cared for. Her grandparents were the only “real” parents that she had, as her mother would go to bars and parties instead of caring for her.

Her mother didn’t start acting like a parent until her late teens

Even then, she acted more like a friend than a mother. As a child, the woman’s mother was abusive towards her, and she had to go to therapy for it.

After her mother made the upsetting comment about her baby, she started noticing things. Her mother often commented about how the woman could be a better mother, telling her things like she needed to give the child more vegetables.

The woman’s mother also tried to get her to put the baby in the shower with her after she mentioned that she would bathe her that night. This bothered the woman because she didn’t even bathe with her child.

When the three were out in public, her mother would often walk away from the woman, sometimes taking the stroller from her. She would buy things for the baby and then tell the woman she provided everything for the child.

She eventually got annoyed with her mother and told her that the baby was not her “do-over” and that she, when she was younger, deserved this better version of her. She also said that she didn’t think it was fair for her mother to use the baby to fix her shortcomings as a mother.

Crying and angry, she told the woman that she was ungrateful for everything she did for her over the years, and emphasized that she “did her best at the time.”

She and her husband are now looking for a place to stay so they can move out of her mother’s home, but rentals are limited.

Was she right?

Unsure whether her anger towards her mother was justified, she turned to the internet for advice.

One person replied, “Your mom doesn’t get to try and be a good parent to a child that isn’t her baby after neglecting you when you needed her.”

Someone else said, “Her “best at the time” makes me wonder what she looked like at her worst.”
