I understand that her actions have made you feel as though she thinks she;s too good for you, but it may not necessarily be so. Have you explored, gently and calmly, what it is about you ( is it actually your bipolarity ? Ort something else ) which makes her feel reluctant to have you watch her kids ? Have there been any previous incidents when something regrettable happened while they were in your care, which she fears being repeated ? Or has your hustory of kid-watching been unblemished, and her fears, whatever they may be, baseless ?
Is she, even when you're not involved at all, extremely cautious about what TV series her kids watch ? Has she, again even if you weren't involved at all, had any previous problem relating to anything her kids did watch, which disturbed or troubled them ?
Were you planning on bringing a series she had never sen, and didn't know enough about to approve in advance ?
Is it really only you, out of the whole world of people, that she doesn't trust to be alone with her kids ? That's very unlikely unless at some time, something happened which led her to feel so untrusting.
Speaking to her in anger is only likely to worsen the situation, and wont bring you satisfaction or happiness.
Excellent responses from Maria and Milla. Chat calmly with her, about why she feels uneasy, explaining that you find this distressing, and want to understand it. And in your interactions with her and the kids, demonstrate convincingly how responsible and loving you are, so that she herself might feel she may have over-reacted, rather than you over-reacting and making her feel certain she was right to be cautious
