Our Community Cares: I was deleted by my granddaughter for being too caring

I have just been unfriended by my granddaughter. Just how far is it acceptable to go when our grandchildren are involved? A photo of my great grandie sitting on the beach in the hot sun was posted to Facebook. That is beautiful, however, he didn’t have a hat on and I carefully said he should have a hat on in the hot sun.

That’s what started it, and because I was believed to be “telling my granddaughter how to be a mother”, I got deleted. I don’t think I overstepped the line but I would like to know what other grandmothers think. This is not the first time she has deleted me and I would like to know how far others would go giving their opinion in cases like this“.
