Socialization with Small Dogs?

When I bring home a pup, after it reaches around 15-20lb, should it be not allowed to play with my mother's dog when she is around? Her dog is some sort of mix, around 6lb, and very playful. Just worrying since the shepherd could hurt her if it got too rough. Pixi (mom's dog) does get along well with a 30lb Cocker Spaniel, but that dog is much older, so likely more gentle/calm.
Thanks for any help!

We have a chihuahua once he warmed up to max and it did take awhile -the only time they played max would lay on the ground and I would watch and supervise. Session would be short and controlled. When max got bigger our chihuahua did not wAnt to play anymore so I made sure it stopped. Everything has to be controlled. They can easily get run over or seriously hurt. so any kind of play or interaction has to be controlled with a tiny dog.
