Yesterday a friend of mine spoke about her mother who seemed to be creating rifts in her marital life. Being the only daughter her mother apparantly lives with her. Her dad is no more. Now her mother has been complaining about her daughter to the son-in-law and often reprimands her infront of him. An example, daughter forgot to buy her favorite bathing soap and this woman goes and complains to the son-in-law - your wife doesnt even buy soap for me nowdays !! When her daughter was working bringing home a good package the mother enjoyed the luxury her daughter showered on her. Now she is a stay-at-home mother and this old woman has been constantly cribbing about her daughter to the son-in-law of how she is not good enough to take of their child or her cooking skills are not good. She is confused with her mothers behavior and fed-up as well. Anything she does to please her mother from getting her clothes to keeping her happy is never valued. I was unsure how to guide her or rather I have no clue on what to guide her.
