  1. I think she may have some issues.

  2. I’d think this lady has some very serious emotional problems. I’d tell her if she doesn’t behave in an adult and respectful manner, I would stop speaking to her and hang up.

  4. She sounds like a good, devout Christian woman to me, bearing the cross of disobedient, Satan-inspired children.

  5. I would think she is mentally ill.

  6. Theres some thing mentaly wrong with her.Unless she is a religous zealot.

  7. Sorry to say this, but she is going to hell.

    April 18, 2013 at 4:34 pm

  8. Was she always like this or has senilty set in? Either way, it’s wrong. Nothing you can do about it now except ignore her.
    Also, ask God to forgive her.

  9. no mother should behave like this but maybe she has her reasons.

    April 18, 2013 at 5:34 pm

  10. I’d say she’s superstitious. It’s not like anything she says will have an effect. People curse each other out all the time. It will only affect you if you take it personally or run around acting like you’ve been cursed. I mean, what is she, a Voodoo queen? Why do you let it bother you?

  11. try to be abit charitable, its the way she was brought up, spend some time to listen to her and tell her what the world is like today

    April 18, 2013 at 6:35 pm

  12. I think she must be related to my Mother, who does VERY similar and equally horrid things to me!

    April 18, 2013 at 6:47 pm

  13. I think that the mother needs serious psycological help and she is seriously scaring her childeren. Those are the actions that turn kids to drugs, suicide, and even murder.

    April 18, 2013 at 6:51 pm

  14. What would I think?
    I think she is in deep trouble with God for not loving.
    She is very misinformed about God.
    God will punish HER, since it is she that God entrusted to care for those kids, so she better straighten up quick.

  15. CRAZY!
    VERY CRAZY!!!!!!!

    April 18, 2013 at 7:49 pm

  16. Most likely there are some mental illness issues.

    April 18, 2013 at 8:10 pm

  18. I would think she needs to lay off the booze and set down the bible.

    April 18, 2013 at 9:11 pm

  19. I think my mum must have said that about me at one point but she did regret and take it back afterwards. Maybe your grandmother just said it in the spur of the moment.

    April 18, 2013 at 10:09 pm

  20. She sounds like a mad woman, maybe the Alzheimer’s is slipping in?
    Nothing worse than a ranting raving old biddy with a nasty complex…reminds me of my mother in law…best thing to do is ignore her…

    April 18, 2013 at 10:20 pm

  21. i’d think she needs some therapy! no offence! xxx

  25. its a normal thing for a religious person to say. All religions are brain washing and oppressive. Cursing and guilt is a catholic thing.

  26. She needs to learn parenting skills. Kids don’t come with instructions. All you have to go by is the way your parents treated you. If they were poor parents, you will probably not know what to do.

  27. I would think she is one badly damaged person. I imagine she has inflicted a great deal of emotional damage on her children too.

    She may feel she is entitled to their full attention and devotion and is not getting it. Therefore God should punished them. Doesn’t she realize that God doesn’t do what others tell him to do? I was raised that if you ask God to do harmful things to others He will make your life an unhappy one, not theirs.

    I don’t think your grandmother is beyond help. She may not even see how mean the things she does and says is. Probably thinks nobody pays any attention to her at all. If this was the cycle she was raised in, she’s merely continuing the abuse because she doesn’t really know any better. My grandmother was really hard on her children but that was the way parents were in her day. She was actually a little more lenient than most when she raised her children. Some of the “normal child rearing” she did would have social services all over you today.

    LOL, I also have this stereotypical image in my mind of your grandmother as this guilt driven Jewish and/or Italian woman flailing her arms around dramatically. Yet if a bee comes near her child she’ll swoop them up to protect them from harm and cry uncontrollably if the bee did sting them pleading to God to take her not the child.

    She could just be a major drama queen.

  28. Evil. Basically. Religion isn’t supposed to be like that is it? But it is. I remember when i was 8 and a family who lived on the same street actually beat a child to death because ‘God willed it due to bad behaviour.’
    That child was my best friend.

    April 19, 2013 at 2:04 am

  29. She’s old and ornery. She can be ignored. And the mother can just tell her that she doesn’t believe in G-d. Let gran figure her way out of that one.

  30. Shes not a well bunny, I would distance yourself even if she is your grandmother. x

    April 19, 2013 at 3:09 am

  31. requires attention and some help

  32. problem Grandma why threaten children with this advise if anything she is the one who will be punished.
    What she is doing is a form of mental abuse and i take this very serious because they will remember this for many years.
    I have nothing more to say.

  33. I had the same situation as you with my Maternal Great Grandmother – lets just say that even though her daughter was in her 50’s – GGMa would still give her a smack if she thought she needed one – she also “hated” me or so I thought the way she would curse me and my mom – I finally got an answer from her – as she said – We reminded her too much of her lost youth – she had married at 14years of age and had her first born by age 15 – as well as run a house and work to ensure enough money was had for a meal – she never had the privilege of being a child – try and find out what is causing Granny to behave the way she is now – it might surprise you when you find the cause

  34. she has some very serious problems, because this behaviour is not normal for any mother. i would think that she need therapy, and that she needs it fast.

    April 19, 2013 at 5:22 am

  35. she shouldn’t ever have had kids in the first place.

    April 19, 2013 at 5:38 am

  36. i would say she has no understanding of god! she is obviously troubled in herself.

  37. Nasty, curse who you want but not your family and certainly not your children.

  38. She’s a seventh daughter of a seventh daughter”A witch”

    April 19, 2013 at 7:10 am

  39. well to be honest i think she sounds like a very selfish woman
    who clearly does not appreciate there family.

    she clearly needs help, maybe she has issues or maybe it’s the way she was brought up, herself BUT i doubt she would admit she has a problem even if you spoke to her about it.

    are the children very young? and are they suffering in some way ?it’s very worrying to me to think of these children are living with her like this.

    the only thing i can think of is contacting social services, or ringing child line if the children are suffering in some way you must do something.

    if they are just adults, grown up etc I’d ignore her whilst she behaves like this.

    April 19, 2013 at 8:02 am

  40. in my mind she is not fit to be a Mother I would never ask God to punish my children I only ask him to protect and love them,God forgive her she should be ashamed of herself

    April 19, 2013 at 8:25 am

  41. I would be very worried about this. people that become this way. sometimes kill to justify what their God told them to do, for they will say that they were evil. and God told them to do away with the evil.

    This can be something very Bad. Please, find out more about this, talk to a Doctor, they may be able to help you. I have head of this, many times.

    April 19, 2013 at 9:04 am

  42. Your grandmother seems to have some personal issues also she may be trying to put fear in her own children by showing them that she’s praying god to punish them.

    It’s like threatening to phone Santa Claus to cancel delivering presents to your kids at Christmas in order to get them to behave and/or feel guilty for being naughty.
