When I ask on the phone with my mother in law she heared dd snap at me and she said "you need to slap her in the face really hard for that". I was shocked, this woman is a class act, and very gracious in every way. DD is in counciling and they think she might be Bi Polar. DD is ADD and ODD and now maybe Bi Polar? So she has somethings going on with her so I try to be understanding to a point.
This really wears on me and I need to get some relief from all of the negitivity that she dishes out. In March I lost my mom to cancer and I am feeling quite fragile myself right now.
Any suggestions on getting her to change that doesn't require violence. If I was to slap her she would hit me back in her current condition. The other day we were in the car and she was doing that I just said dd when you speak to me like that I will just ignore you until you appoligize. We rode the rest of the way home in silience then she got out and slammed the car door. I went inside and went about my business. She said "Mom I'm sorry" and I said "for what". She told me that she was being rude to me. I wonder if this will work long term.
