At my SS's 5th bday party sat., their Papaw almost got in a fight with his ex-SIL (his daughter's ex hubby, father to his oldest grand kids, and brother to his own sister's husband). They don't generally get along that well, but normally there isn't a big scene. However, there is a lot of stress going in Papaws life so he just sort of snapped I guess. Well, Papaw's son (my SO) tried to stop the fight from happening. And it ended in those to yelling at one another. Right now, mySO's parents are living with us and have been since Aug. They are both at the end of their ropes. They don't live well with one another. Either way, most all the kids were outside. My SD was crying holding on to my sister when I got outside. I sent her inside and after I felt that my SO and his dad weren't going to physically go at it, I went inside to check on her and her cousin's (SS didn't even seem to care what was going on). see more...

Well, first of all, I have to give you a pat on the back because most parents would choose to ignore this and treat it as no big deal. Good for you. I would suggest having her talk to the guidance counselor at school. Children are more open to talking to someone that isn't a relative. Good luck.
