Like mansplaining but when your mom does it.
Momsplaining is the act of explaining things to your child that they, obviously, already know.
Mom: Don't forget to lock the door when you leave. And to lock it you have to turn it to the left not the right.

You: You don't have to momsplain. I've lived in this house my whole life.

The use of words and tone that occurs by mothers. The audience is not limited to children, but can also be used with childless friends. Usually condescending in tone.
You don't understand how much your life changes once you have children.

Oh great, Jenny is up to her momsplaining again.
