I understand that her (DCM's) feelings are hurt but in all honesty, she can't get "offended" and hurt every time someone tries to do what's best for her child.... she'll need to get over that or she will do her child no good in years to come.

If sitting down with her is not something you really want to do, perhaps writing an e-mail explaining your thoughts/feelings about the situation may help.

Sounds like the DCM is emotional right now about this and maybe once she calms down and starts hearing what you said verses how it makes her feel, she maybe more open to actually listening.

Good luck and keep us posted as to what happens.
This is exactly my concern. There are constantly going to be things to get offended about when raising a child. Is she going to pull her out of kindergarten b/c the teacher had to discipline her and talk to them about it?

I am very open to talking to DCM about it more, except, this morning I went outside with her to talk privately (My husband was with the kids) and she said "I can't keep having these conversations everyday." This morning would be the 3rd time we have "talked" more than "DCGs day was fine." If she can't see that I am having these conversations with her to insure that we are moving forward correctly, then I'm not sure what else I can do.

You know what? I think I'm offended that she can't see how much time/energy/love I'm putting into this right now!
