Grandparents undermining your authority…

Standard

My 15 year old daughter just came home with a new phone after having hers taken away a month ago for not doing as she was told. So she walks in my room and proud as can be look what I have…. Trying not to explode I shake my head in acknowledgement. I feel like I was just slapped in the face not only as a parent but as my mothers daughter. The whole thing about putting my daughter on punishment and trying to teach her there are consequences for her actions just went completely out the window. There is absolutely nothing nice and constructive I have to say to my mother. How do I not let this eat me up inside?
