1. you have a daughter with no physical support from her father
2. in the eyes of your four yr old she sees grandpa as a father figure
3. the issue with your mother can easily be handled take your mother out and the two of you talk about what plans both of you have for the child and try and meet each other mid way at this point its whats best for the child
4.your father stays out because he do not want to hurt either you your mother nor his grand child
5. Children learn what a family should be like by the examples the adults in her life sets try and talk to your mother i did not say yell shout or insult talk honestly to one another and let her know what you feel it will sure make things better
and moving out is like running away it solves nothing work on solving what ever issues you and your mom has remember life is a cycle what you do now with your mother will come back ten fold

You are living under your parents roof, so follow their rules. You have not explained WHAT has been heated, so just try to act mature and be a good role model for your child. She is seeing everything that is happening, so show her what it means to be an adult. You must act civil until you move out.

How long before you think you can afford to move? Do you get child support from the father, or qualify for any assistance that can make moving out sooner possible? I am not sure what you mean by "my parents some what attack me"? Are they violent? Do you have any other family that you could live with or rent a room from for a time. Meanwhile you have got to put your foot down with your mother. If she is providing child care for you, you may want to end that and allow her to be a grandparent. It is your child, your rules; end of story.
