Parent Guidance


My 33 year old daughter recently moved back in with me with her six kids and I realize that she doesn’t parent at all. The 17 year old already quit school, 13 year old plays video games all night long, the nine-year-old is watching the twin two year olds and the five-year-old while I’m at work all day. And, my daughter does not work and expects me to pay all the bills. She’s not even taking care of the house or cleaning up herself. If I say anything she doesn’t like she threatens to move out and not let me see my grandkids. I’m at my wits end what do I do?
