Have Parenting Questions? Ask a Parenting Counselor for Answers
Hello and Thank You for using Just Answer. I am sorry to hear about the problems that you are experiencing with your daughter. It does sound like you are a very loving and supportive parent and grand parent. You must continue to keep the lines of communication open and honest between you and your daughter. You must also be firm and consistent with her in her decisions as long as she is living under your roof. Tell her that she needs to be a positive role model for her daughter and that you would be willing to watch and care for her daughter while she goes over to her boyfriend's house. If she comes and goes as she pleases with her two year old at all hours, she is simply displaying a lack of maturity. Does she work? Is she employed? You must guide her into making better decisions. Tell her what you expect from her as a mother. Remind her of how she was raised and the sacrifices that you made for her. Hopefully, she is not taking advantage of living with you. As an adult with a child, she must act like an adult. The teen years are behind her. It is unfortunate that she had a child so young but she must aspire to make something more out of her life. Professional counseling is also another option for her if simply talking to her gives no results.
