. . . I can't compromise on the way my children are raised.

I'm their mom, what I say, goes. But my mom? She likes to undermine my efforts at teaching, raising and disciplining the teens. When I ground them and say no phones and no friends for a week, she gives them the phone and let's them go to their friends house when I'm not home. When I say a piece of clothing is too tight and they should pack it away for charity, she brings up what I use to wear in my day. Hello? Why would I want my daughters to make my mistakes? My job is to use my experience to assist them, no? My mom and I fight about the teens having boyfriends all the time. She likes to bring up my mistakes as a teen and say "oh but you had a boyfriend at their age." And "oh, I couldn't control you at 14, you were always hanging out". What? I'm suppose to let my kids make the same mistakes I did? I don't want my kids doing the bullshit I did as a teen. You would expect her to support me in this. Instead, she encourages them. Sometimes, I think it's her form of revenge.
