Any tips on respectfully telling your parents to "back off" the disciplining of your children.


Sometimes a grandparent inserts their standards in my home and corrects a child for something we have established as being ok/acceptable for our household. This grandparent also shakes or yanks on the kids. Recently, grandparent publicly disciplined a child, when I was right there to do it, (was waiting for opportunity to be discreet). My child remembers not the "lesson", but the grandparent reaction- squeezing my child's arms,lifting my child off the floor & scolding through grit teeth,in the middle of the store. I did not witness it, &I don't doubt it. How would you handle this?
