My 17 year old niece has a a daughter. She lives s with her mother. She graduated. She works. Baby's father also provides for their child. Her daughter goes to day care while she's at work.
Sil, is incredibly over bearing and controlling and is determined to control how her daughter raises her child.
Her daughter wanted to move out, but sil told her that if she did she'd report her as a runaway and they'd take her baby away. Now, that's by true. She's close enough to 18 and has a child, the police wouldn't even go after her. But that scared her enough to make her stay until she's 18.
Sil had apparently grounded her for getting the "wrong baby food.".
Sil wanted her to get beechnut. She got gerber.
Sil was not paying for the baby food.
(the store here only has gerber. Small town store) But since she didn't get the kind her mother wanted she is now grounded.
Sil is now pissed because the baby's father came to pick her up for the weekend (he has her on weekends, and sees her through out the week.)
According to sil she grounded her and that part if her grounding included her not being able to send her daughter to her dads.
Sil is now pissed because she sent her daughter to her dads like normal and told sil that she doesn't get to decide when her daughter can see her father or when she can go with him.
Well, she doesn't get a say in that! That's not her choice!
How does she not realise that what she's going is nutty?
She threw a huge ass fit when her daughter got a job and found a daycare. She says wanted we daughter to stay home with her. Really I think she wanted her daughter to not get a job so shed have to be solely dependent on her.
