Dr. Beth, I am 62 and the proud mother of two daughters, both of whom are married and have children. One has two children, ages 3 and 5. The other has two kids also, ages 2 and 7. My problem is that one of my daughters thinks I’m a terrible grandmother, but the other one thinks I’m just fine. It seems like my disappointed daughter is always angry at me and constantly criticizes how I treat the kids—I bought the wrong outfit, I don’t babysit the children enough, etc. I love both my daughters and all 4 of my grandchildren. I give and do the same for both families but one daughter is fine with it and the other daughter isn’t. I’m about to tear my hair out. What can I do?
