My sister has always been a shitty mom. Men always came before her child. Her daughter was taken by the father when she was about 7. The daughter wasn't happy so last year at the age of 16 she moved in with my hubby and I. My sister always played the victim when it came to her daughter. Still does. My niece's dad sends us $150 a month to help us out and my sister had the nerve to say he should be sending more. She doesn't do ANYTHING for her daughter. I'm so stressed out because having a teenager is challenging. I know my sister won't do a damn thing for her daughter for Christmas either. Last year she got her a Snuggie and then got her son (who lives with her) an X Box 360 and Nintendo DS and a flat screen TV. My husband and I are trying so hard to be good influences on my niece but it's very hard to know how to make her happy and help her to grow into a good person when she hasn't had that most of her life.
