You've likely noticed in recent years that small aspects of parenting that many once didn't think much about have grown into battlegrounds.
And a lot of that had to do with the transition between traditional authority-driven parental styles and newer ideas of working with your children to develop a style that makes sense for them.
While traditionalists tend to think that deviating from the norms they grew up with will prevent a child from learning right from wrong, others have come around to the opinion that the way things worked in past generations leave a lot to be desired in what they prioritized and in what needed to be enforced.
These battles often happen over how children express their genders, the level of affection they should show to other family members, and whether their behavior should be punished.
And in the case of one mom's conflict with her own mother, it seems they can't agree on all three of these considerations.
