It is not easy to become a parent at such a young age.
When it comes to young parents, there is a stereotype that they don’t know what they’re doing. And, while this may be true in some cases. Whether you are older or younger, becoming a parent is a different experience. And, for the most part, everyone learns as they go. However, this does not preclude people from giving a young parent the side eye. People don’t realise how difficult it is to become a parent at such a young age, especially when you have to care for another human being while still learning how to care for yourself.
Being a parent is one of the most difficult jobs in the world, and you don’t even get paid for it. However, for many, it is worthwhile. So, whether by accident or design, it is critical that a person stand up and decide to be more mature and responsible for the sake of their child. And that is exactly what this guy is attempting. He is not only a father but also a single father. So, when he is at work, he leaves his daughter with his mother, which is understandable. After all, babysitters can be costly, and you must earn money if you are to care for a child.

From the title, we can tell that his mother was embarrassed.
However, the reason for her embarrassment is quite weird.
The woman was just taking care of the kid.
Apparently she had been lying to the neighbor.
She couldn’t handle her lie being revealed.
Nobody assumes something like that. Don’t people usually ask?
She is mad because she got caught lying.
It is not OP’s fault at all.
I’m not sure why the mother was embarrassed. He wasn’t deceiving anyone. He was simply speaking the truth. Saying you’re the mother of a child when you’re actually the grandparent can be perplexing for the child. And if her friend has a problem with young parents, that is her problem, not the OP’s. I believe he did the correct thing by stating it clearly. It’s also clear that the friend no longer wants to talk to his mother because she told her a big lie. I wouldn’t want to be friends with someone like this either.
That shouldn’t matter when it comes to his mother.
It isn’t as if OP knew beforehand and did it anyway.
Even if he did know beforehand, he still wouldn’t be in the wrong.
Anyone would be bothered by this.
Exactly! What’s there to be embarrassed about?
I would say it is probably the latter reason.
She should feel embarrassed.
She should apologize to everyone involved.
This is a very valid thought.
She could be lying again.
I would believe everything this woman says.
