My dad has always taken my dd for outings like to the fair and things. That was ok because I worked and have 3 small children at home and because of the age gap between my oldest and 3 younger ones it was hard for me to find an activuty everyone would be pleased with.
Last yr I had to set my foot down and tell my dad to stop meddling. He had picked her up early frim school so many times without me knowing that I got a letter threatening family court due to my oldest having 19 tardies..I told him I was taking him off of the approved list of adults to pick her up..
Once I had grounded her and told her school and church were the only place she could go. She called her grandpa and snuck out of the house and he picked her up without me knowing. I was so furious I threatened to get him for kidnapping.
Today we get into it again..Everyone in our house has a summer cold. My oldest calls and tells her pa she's running a fever she can't swallow and she's throwing up...No she isn't..he texts me to get her ready he's taking her to ER..I of course refuse coz she lied about being that sick. He showed up at my house anyways to get her.
I am just so upset..at her and him. He won't let me parent my own child and she has learned to manipulate him.
