Bit f a rant I have 2 kids ds 5 and dd 1 and hubby away a lot I spend time round my mum's as my ds has asd and is a nightmare to look after on your own. But lately I'm getting it in the neck for my parenting skills. My mum was a smother mother and still looks after my 35 yo brother like he was 6 me I'm laid back take it my stride a less contact mum as my mum calls it. If the kids are happy playing I will get on with jobs etc whilst keeping an eye on them but apparent this is wrong I should be with them constantly and do my jobs when they have gone to bed?! All my hubby came home with a cold and now daughter has it appears I have to shield the kids from all known germs and sterilise everything. I'm getting told that I'm useless and then when I get angry and say you have them then if I'm so rubbish she says no your ok arghhh

Her way sounds very unrelaxing! (Not to mention boring, who wants to hover over kids all day) I'm pretty sure kids like space too, ignore her- if you can.
