SS's BM just confided in me that she was really struggling with parenting her son. He is more my son than hers, she was absent a LOT when he was young and she has a hard time seeing him as a 7 year old and not a 4 year old. In any case, she doesn't really discipline him and she doesn't really interact with him because she doesn't know how. She has visitation and DH has custody, so I actually spend more time with him than she does. She asked me if I could outline his daily schedule and his rules at home so that she could try to be as consistent in that as possible. She asked if she could call when she was having problems with him so that she could some outside input. She is also struggling with a lot of other things right now, so that kind of adds to her anxiety about this whole thing. Would it be inappropriate to loan her our book or to offer to "suspend" her visitation until she gets some things back on track?
