I feel for you, I have to step-children & my own DD. Step-daughter was already working when I met her my DH, she eventually moved in with her BF, married & has 2 GC, one is doing an Apprenticeship with BAE Systems, other has just started working for Local Council, 2 sensible young people.
Step-son was a nightmare, in trouble with Police, lost his Apprenticeship (printing, supposed to go to College 1 day a week, hated it, didn't tell his boss) & drifted through different jobs, now has a good job through his GF's BiL, 2 GC who I can only describe as undisciplined. Step-son had no respect for his Dad, gave GF a key without asking then moved her in - I couldn't interfere but it upset DH very much.
Few ups & downs with my DD but on the whole no more then most teens, at 21 she moved to Devon with friends, is now in a solid relationship & I have lovely DGS.
I now have no contact with step-son after DH's Funeral, he tried to interfere when DH was in Hospital & knows better than every-one even Medical Professionals - do I miss him & GC -NO
Hope everything works out for you with DD & DGC
