Okay, my mom decided she wants to give me and my husband custody of my unruly 15 year old sister. It's either here or a foster home. BUT, I'm only 7 years older than my sister and my husband and I have our own 3 kids who are 6, 5 and 2 to raise as well. So the question of the day is: Do you think it can be done? Also, any tips for raising a teenager?Answer Question

I think this is your Mom's responsibility and should not be giving you her problem child, you have your own children to raise..15 is such a difficult age, I foresee nothing but problems..Plus a 15 year old is just coming into her sexuality and she might try to entice your hubby..

I think you have to explain the situation to your sister and let her know that if you do this she needs to become a part of your family. She needs to be on your team, she can't fight your authority at every turn. If can't respect you and your DH's rules then it just won't work. Sit down and talk with her and see if she can understand this. You can't take her in if she going to go out of her way to be a hindrance to your family....and your mom is irresponsible.
