My daughter has Left her husband and come to live with us with her children, she has been diagnosed with MH problems, but her behaviour at times is really difficult to understand and she is neglecting the children. I’m at my wits end. I am now on anti depressants as I can’t cope. She goes out all the time and just expects us to look after the children. If I didn’t bath them/wash their clothes/do their homeworkwith them it just wouldn’t be done. I’ve tried and tried to speak with her about this, but she claims I am controlling.
She has now started to smoke weed and it seems to be all consuming. She has said she’ll move out if I’m unhappy, but she can’t because the children would suffer and besides, she only works part time at minimum wage.
OH and myself were beginning to look forward to spending more time together, but now we don’t even have time to talk.
I don’t think it’s her MH that’s causing this (I discussed it with her CPN) she is just acting like a 15 year old!
I’m Absolutly exhausted both mentally and physically and have no idea what to do.
I adore my grandchildren and they have all flourished since they came to stay, but, TBH, I don’t really like my daughter at the moment.
