Time to vent (yet again)

Sunday, February 02, 2014

Well, here I sit after realizing that this past month has been tremendously stressful and mostly sedentary. We are still dealing with our 24 year old married daughter who acts like she's 15 on Facebook. Both she and her husband act similarly and both neglect the children to the extent that she and the kids live with my mother in law and he lives with his mother. Neither of them works and it gets worse everyday. My dear wife and I are constantly in the mix by trying to keep the children safe. One stays with us more often than not and it is quite difficult. We seldom exercise and it is taking its toll on us mentally and physically. I am about to snap and so is my wife. This is hurting us and I mean to put an end to it. Advice is welcome and needed. We love those babies so much but this is hurting me and my wife so it must stop.

    I wish that I had the wisdom of Solomon & could give you just the right advise. I am lifting prayer for you to be given God's wisdom in knowing what is the best course of action to take.

    God bless your family & you!

    so tough. sorry you are going through this. it's one thing to pull tough love on your own children, but where there are innocent children involved...your daughter needs to grow up and realize she chose to have children and it's time to be the adult. good luck to you and your wife.

    My heart goes out to you. I don't have any advice that you don't see here, but I do send my prayers your way.

    When your "children" are adults it's time for Tough Love. Easier said than done... maybe. But YOU have to toughen up if you want your "children" to. Best of luck to your family.

    I wish I had the advice to fix it for you! But, alas, I don't! All I can suggest for you and your wife is to continue to include the grandkids in your exercise routines! I just don't understand how these young adults think they can live without working and neglecting their children? I wish you resolution to these issues! Wish I could help! Perhaps you can sit your daughter down and tell her this is it... Either she gets a job and takes care of her children, or you will help her find people willing to adopt the precious babes! Plenty of folks out here who want and will love children of any age and most states have visitation rights for grandparents now. And, if you are supporting your daughter, well, put her out. Make her fend for herself. It is tough to do, but sometimes you have to put the boot to the butt! Good luck!

    A lot to take on and stress can be a major factor in ill health and weight gain. I agree with prayer, and a decision to be healthy. Time is a gift and it cannot be regained, we can extend it by being healthy though.

    emoticon Believe it or not, sooner or later, prayer works things out.
