Our expert says:
Perhaps your mother was so otherwise unoccupied, that in a sense she became dependent on being too involved in indulging your daighter. If the child is now wholly in your cae, you could set up a new discipline regime to change this. If you are still in effect sharing custody with your mom, the kid will get hopelessly confused if she has to live under two sets of laws and regulations --- you would need to meet with your mom, maybe with the help of a child psychologist for a couple of sessions --- to negotiate a shared and consistent approach that increases the kid's degree of independence , especially as the child will need this to be able to go to school soon and to thrive there. Maybe a pre-schoool setting in the meantime could also help ?
