"What can I do if I feel my daughter isn't taking my grandson's addiction seriously?"
Asked by HopetrackerA3 Seen by 190
My daughter and I don’t have the best relationship, but I’m afraid she’s enabling my grandson’s addiction. She refuses to believe that he is stealing from her and instead fires every cleaning company she hires. I can see that he needs help and she just baby’s him. I’m worried that if I tell her what to do (or God forbid… tell him what to do), she’ll think I’m overstepping my boundaries and our already tumultuous relationship will suffer even more.

Is never good to stay quiet to 'keep the peace.' For your own sanity speak your truth in love and they focus on yourself. If your Grandson ever steals from you - call him out on it and set boundaries moving forward. Keeping secrets for the sake of 'peace' only fuels the addiction.

The first thing that I suggest is finding a way to heal you and your daughter's relationship. Can you think of any steps you can take towards achieving that? Seek outside help if necessary by working with a therapist or other family support professional. Once you feel that you are in a better place, you can form a team to support your grandson's recovery.
