I agree with the others on the sunscreen. As far as the rest, well she's his mother. I'd find it impossible to sit back at my son's game & act like I'm a stranger to him while my ex's girlfriend acts like his mother. Sorry but that would be an issue for me.

The key here is - just because someone doesn't parent the way you do, doesn't make them a bad parent. Just makes them different. You can't teach her to parent your way. I have a neighbor who is like that. She expects all children to be parented the way she parents hers. She thinks she's above me. I parent the way I do by choice and have no desire to change for her or anyone else.

Step back & let her be O's mom. You don't have to like it or agree with how she does it but you do have to respect it. O will turn out just fine.
