I hate being in this position!Long,sorry:(!
If you have read any of my previous posts you know I'm raising my two grandchildren.And because of issues with my DD and her a-hole boyfriend I do not want them in my home for any length of time.
Well they are in the position now that by Friday they will be living on the streets! No job or prospective jobs! And trying to talk to her is like beating my head against a brick wall. Being a single Mom,she could get into a shelter along with her son. But her BF would not be allowed in the same one because they are not married and he is also on paper as a sex offender.(Long story.) And he is just trouble for her,it seems everytime she is on the right road to get on with her life he interferes some how!
But she LOVES him! And rather then being able to be with her kids in a safe enviroment,knowing she'll have a roof over her head and food everyday,she would rather tag behind him and live where ever?
Me and my DH(who is her step-dad)discussed even allowing her to move back in with us temporarily and help her get on her feet. And this is a big decision for us to make becuase of hard feeling between DH and DD over the way she has verbally abused me and the disrespect she has for both of us when she is living here! But DH even said rather then see her on the streets she would be allowed to come back home as long as he wasn't with her!
But she refuses! I just don't understand how a Mother can choose an abusive drug using alchoholic a-hole over her own safety and being with her children?
How am I,as her Mother and Grandmother to my sweet grandchildren supposed to stand by and allow her to continue to be used by him? It hurts to know,no matter what I say or do just dosen't register with her?
