I agree. This is effecting your kids. I have a very close bond with my mother, but there would be no way I would handle that! Could she handle an emergency if one came up? It is not fair that your children should have to handle her moods. So sorry.

If she must remain with you, I would certainly not leave her alone with the children. It only takes a second for someone to snap and hurt a child. If she must do a job, have her fold clothes, empty the dishwasher, or put away groceries.
I completely agree. I dont think i would leave her alone with the kids anymore. It might be a touchy subject but just not worth the risk. Get her help or have her move out - I wouldn't bother requesting help with chores until she can get a handle on day-to-day living. It's obvious that the stress is a factor here.
