I am semi raising my grandson. My daughter who is 19 and addicted to drugs was away at rehab and I took care of not only my 7 year old but also my grandson who is 17months old.I am currently separated from my husband and have a permanent restraining order on him.Now my daughter is back home and doesnt seem to want to be bothered with her son. I feel as if I dont do anything for him then nothing gets done. He definitely has a bonding problem with his mom. I feel like I have no choice then to take him on as I did when she was in rehab. On the flip side,my son acts out when I show my grandson any affection. Its like a tug of war between the both of them. I try to explain to my son why and what is going on but I dont think he likes what I am saying or that maybe he doesnt understand.I cant sit by and watch my grandson going threw what he has been because mom is partially back in his life. I am at the point where I want to tell my daughter to go and move out and be on your own and I will take care of her son.I feel like I am stuck!!!
