Simple: STOP GIVING THEM EVERYTHING THEY WANT. You cannot make up for mistakes that you perceive to have made with your daughter by spoiling the hell out of your grandchildren.

Tough love is tough, but the sooner you start the better.

Also, I do have to tell you men are not allowed on this site at this current time. Currently the management team is in the process of creating a site for men and women. I will be passing your information off to management so they can add you to the correct site when it is opened.

Yeah you really need to stop giving in. You can use time outs as a good tool. Also, with the cloths issue, lay out a couple of outfits for her and let her choose what she wants to wear. Sit down with everyone in the house, and discuss house rules. What is expected, what you would like to see from them. Then have open talk, and see hear what they have to say about house rules, or things that might need to change. Have them all be heard, and some things you may change, others may not. But, communicate with all the children. Let them have a say. And if it is something that cannot change as far as your rules go, give a simple clear reason why. You can even discuss consequences at this meeting.

Other ideas, have family dinner and go around the table and discuss your day with each other. Communication is the key to a happy family.

she does have boundaries, but everything they went through till we got them, of not having anything and being with strangers, did something to them, I hate the syteam for that, we tried takeing things away from her we take them on vacations and camping, ,its when we are home its like her way or no way, my wife don't give in to hear as much as i do, and I know I shouldn't, its just hard at times, I am trying to get counseling for her, I think its just all they have been through, maybe she is rebeelling
