Is it ok for Mom to discuss discipline advice in front of her child?
My friend calls me on a daily basis and discusses the all the (BIG) troubles she is having with her 2 yr old son. The problem is she is talking about him (albeit good or bad) on the phone (or in person) with him in the same room. I can't help but wonder if she is making the situation worse. We'll have conversations lasting anywhere from 2-25 min's all about her son. I suggested that she try for 2 weeks and NOT talk about him within earshot. I offered that she can come visit me anytime to blow off some steam. I was hoping someone had a good professional reason as to what she is doing is wrong.
