Thank you for your reply.
My daughter has been doing these things you sugested. However a lot of the promlems are complex.
Evie's Daddy (Rick) has recently been sent to jail for theft from his employer, just before Christmas.
There have been three prison visits which have caused Evie and my daughter (Gina)distress.
These visits have been in the presence of Ricks parents.
The grandparents who live near by want to take control (they pay the rent and provide free child care while my daughter works). I live too far away to give that kind of support.
Another problem is that Ricks parents seem to believe that they are a better class of prison visiter and their son is a better class of prisoner. Their words not mine.
My daughter is having dificulty with the situation she finds herself in.
