Help!!! Need Advice

My husband received a unexpected phone call today for his child's mother's father and he informed him that the mother haven't been taking care of the child but been taking the child support and spending it on drugs and her boyfriend while the lil girl lives with her grandparents. And just a couple a days she was shipped of to some kind of bootcamp for girl which the courts ordered. And his baby mom has always called us saying she's having so much trouble with the child and that she do this and that for her and come to find out she does nothing. Right now the grandparents are willing to help do whatever it take to make this right.

  • Sounds like the grandparents and your husband are taking care of it.

  • Are the grandparents good parents? Maybe they can push to adopt the little girl permanantly.

  • So what's the question? The mother is a liar, the daughter is in a type of jail and the grandparents want what? Your husband to take the girl? Your husband to relinquish parental rights? Not understanding this one.

  • They really cant control her she's 16 now so she think she knows what best for herself...if she was going to school and not fighting the teachers she wouldnt have to go to bootcamp she just dont have no respect for authority. A couple of years back my husband did have her living with him but one day she didnt want him to take away her tv and phone out of her room because she sneaked some older boys in the house while he went to grab them something to eat. So she called her mom n her mom called the police and said he took her away n wouldnt let her she her child which was so untrue.

  • Should we try this again and take the child?
