Grandparents role in supporting a dysfunctional family.

Stephanie - posted on 12/13/2014 ( 2 moms have responded )




Grandparents who would like to support divorced daughter with 2 recalcitrant & disrespectful & stubbornly resistive pre-teens who prefer their digital devices to any physical activity or family function. They're telling their mother that they will make her life miserable if she makes them participate. Father long distance, communicates only by phone. Mother working 2 jobs to support the family. Kids not empathetic to her strain. Fearing for her mental health.

I agree and these kids should be doing some odd and end chores around home to help mom out too so I would start a list of chores they can do mostly things they can do for themselves like laundry, putting things away, doing dishes, taking out trash, cleaning the floors, dusting, and so on. She should not have to deal with all that and their rude demeanor either.

These kids need discipline and direction. If the Mother agrees then step in and take the electronics away. They then have to earn them back.
