Do you need her help? It sounds like she might be more trouble than she's worth. Go easy on yourself, it's hard when different generations have different ideas how to parent but you're the one in charge, they're your kids.

Parenting has changed rather a lot in the past 30 years so she needs to accept that you are a different mum than she was. A firm "thanks mum, but I am really quite happy to do this my way" may help. I'm always on my iPad when dd is in bed, nothing wrong with that!
