Feeling lost an confused

I'm 26 yrs old with a 4yr old daughter an a baby girl due in November. I'm currently living with my grandparents which isn't bad, but at times it can be. My daughter no longer listens to anything I ask her to do, gives me attitude from sun up till sun down. When I try to discipline my daughter my grandparents always step in an take over or if I tell my daughter she can have something for good behavior they quickly take it away. I'm not really sure what I should do anymore because now I have my daughter telling me I'm not her mommy, but yet I do everything for her that I can expect the discipline part my grandparents don't like how I do things because yes I do spank her, but not for everything mostly when she swears or try taking off on me... oh an neither father's help me with anything. Both my daughters have a different dad

First go to court and get paternity established and file for child support. Form both dads. Next, you need to move out. Have you looked into housing assistance? You might qualify for quite a bit of assistance. Do you work, what is your plan after this baby arrives? I am not surprised your daughter is giving you grief, she has no consistent parent in her life. It may be hard but you gotta tell the grandparents that you are her mother and you will make the rules. Where is she learning to swear? I personally am not a fan of spanking, but I respect your right to parent how you see fit.
