My SS wanted a cell phone in which we told him we would put him on our plan but he had to share our minutes and if he goes over he will have to pay for them. Well he did not like that and told us we would have to buy him more minutes in which my DH told him no. Take it or leave it. Now we find out he went to his grandmother my MIL and lied and told her that no one would get him a phone and she bought him one and all the minutes he wanted. What the F.... she did not even talk to us about it. Now she said she was going to give him her car, when his father specifically told him that he had to save for half of a car. He doesn't have a job because he got fired for not showing up and doesn't have money for insurance gas...Answer Question

INSANE!??? The grandparents HAVE to follow the parents rules and guides for any child. Spoil him?? What? The parents are trying to make him responsible, and productive. She may have the right to be part of his life, but she does not have the right to undermine the authority of the parents! I would not care if the phone/car/house/hooker or whatthefkever was in her name. I GET TO DECIDE what my child gets/does. Not the grandparents! If the grandmother is taking away the leverage, by getting him everything he wants she needs to be stopped. Because she is building in a sense of entitlement he does not deserve and has not earned! He also will not respect his parents if their word is not law where he is concerned. Grandparents already go to make their mistakes, and raise their kids. Some of them have to be told point blank to back off, or suffer the consequences!
